Crustless Broccoli Quiche is one of those wonderful recipes that come together quickly and easily. This is a great dish for those nights when you are busy running the kids from event to event and don’t have a lot of time to cook.
You can easily make this crustless egg dish with the broccoli as I stated, or you can substitue mushrooms, spinach or whatever you have in the vegetable drawer. Don’t have any cheddar cheese? Not to worry, use some swiss or gouda cheese.
You can not go wrong with the basic recipe. No matter what you add to this French classic, it will be fantastic and your family will love it.
