  • Cook's Note:
  • You can substitute fresh broccoli (2 cups) instead of steamed. I have added this to the saucepan to cook with the onions and garlic until soft. I also used a mixture of Cheddar and provolone cheese. I would think mushrooms and red peppers might make this even better, but my family is picky.

For a true 9" pie, this was too many ingredients. I cut the cheese and ham to 1 cup instead of 1 1/2 cups, and then the eggs fit in the pie shell. As for the cheese, I put a layer of cheese on the bottom of the pie shell, then added some to the broccoli/ham mixture, and sprinkled some on top. This worked! It also needs to rest for 10 minutes before serving to set up properly. My family loved it.

It is a good quiche. It was much more time consuming than my standard spinach quiches. If I make this one again, I will definitely add more broccoli and less ham. Way too much ham for my taste.

So good. I'm obsessed with broccoli and this was perfect -- I could eat it three meals a day. I cut back the ham and cheese to 1c. each per reviews and it seemed to be a good quantity to prevent overfilling. Added a sprinkle of nutmeg to the egg mix and stirred the paprika in instead of sprinkling on top. I put some of the cheese on the bottom, some mixed in, and some on top.

Our guests, and Mr. LTH, loved this! I'd have probably rated it "4" stars, myself, but I have to give it "5" based on their rave reviews. I chose to make a potato crust, rather than use a pie crust, and I assembled it all the night before (partaking the potato crust first) for an effortless breakfast the next day. I used a steam able bag of frozen broccoli, which made assembling even easier. The directions don't say when to add the cheese; I'm assuming you should add it w/the broccoli/ham mixture as it didn't work so well added to the egg mixture. I had to bake mine a bit longer since it'd been refrigerated. THANKS for the recipe!

I added mushrooms and a sprinkle of nutmeg, and I mixed the cheese into the egg/milk mixture, since the chef forgot to add a step for the cheese. However, it came out very well--thanks for this recipe. I made two pies, and froze one for another time. My fear of homemade Quiche is conquered!

Made this tonight for dinner. Had excellent flavor. I only used half of an onion as we are not big on it. I 1 1/2x the ham and broccoli so I could fill two pie shells and used 7 eggs. Next time I will just use the recommended amount of broccoli and ham and double the eggs as I like a more eggie quiche and fill the 2 shells. I didn't measure my spices and just eyeballed it. Think I used way less paprika than called for. Will make again for sure.

This was so easy and so delicious. I made it for a family brunch and got huge compliments on it. To boot, I completely forgot to add the shredded cheese and it was still outstanding. I can only imagine what it tastes like with the cheese.
