This easy, cheesy broccoli quiche gets its creamy texture from evaporated milk. It's also a great recipe to make ahead: simply reheat before serving or cut into slices and reheat each morning for breakfast. Using pre-cut microwaveable broccoli cuts down on prep time, but if you have broccoli crowns sitting around, go ahead and use those up. Just be sure to cook the broccoli until it's just barely tender or the final dish will have overcooked, soggy broccoli.

I don t like broccoli and I had to refrain from a second piece! I used 1 head of fresh broccoli and steamed it. I didn t read the note about overcooking the broccoli but it turned out perfect! I used a gluten-free crust from TJ s. Quick and easy! Read More
