Crustless Broccoli

& Cheddar Quiche

3 cups Chopped Broccoli florets

1 cup Grated Cheddar Cheese

2/3 cup – 2% milk

1/4 cup – Half & Half cream

5 – Large Eggs

3/4 tsp. – Kosher salt

1/8 tsp. – Ground Black pepper

pinch freshly grated Nutmeg

  Steam the chopped broccoli florets in the microwave with 1 tablespoon water until tender crisp and green (about 2-3 minutes.) Spray a pie dish with oil then evenly spread the broccoli and then cheddar cheese into the dish. Make the custard mixture by whisking together the milk, cream, eggs, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Pour the custard into the dish and bake 35 to 40 minutes at 350 degrees, until the center is set. Cut the quiche into 6 pieces and serve.
