After working in the yard allllll weekend, dinner time quickly approached on Sunday evening and I had nothing planned. Getting dinner out would require showering and all of that nonsense...so...quiche it was! Luckily I had just been to Costco and bought 2 packages of eggs, I had leftover bacon from this potato salad, and had the other ingredients in the fridge. Perfect throw together meal.
1 onion, minced
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 cups chopped fresh broccoli
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella soy cheese (you can use regular or low-fat if you'd like)
4 eggs, well beaten
1 1/2 cups skim milk (or whatever you prefer)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Over medium-low heat melt butter in a large saucepan. Add onions, garlic and broccoli. Cook slowly, stirring occasionally until the vegetables are soft. Spoon vegetables into pie plate and sprinkle with cheese. Combine eggs and milk. Season with salt and pepper. Pour egg mixture over vegetables and cheese.
Bake in preheated oven for 50 minutes, or until center has set.
*I served this with biscuits (our fav) and a spinach salad with fresh blueberry's and peaches...have I mentioned how much I LOVE summer fruit??!!
