Broccoli-Cheese Quiche

broccoli - cheese quiche

From December 18, 2005:  This is one of my favorite quiche recipes.  It’s very easy to make, especially when using a pre-made pie crust.  Pay attention when buying pre-made pie crusts, most contain lard (yuck!).  I bought Mrs. Smith’s brand and was happy with it.  I bake the pre-made pie crust a few minutes before adding the egg mixture, but you don’t have to do that.  To lighten the quiche a bit, I use 3/4 c. cream and 3/4 c. milk (you could use half and half instead of cream and milk).  This quiche is perfect for brunches and parties.  although I like mine warm, it tastes great at room temperature as well.
