Recipe Monday

Colleen is sponsoring Recipe Mondays over at The Crazy Eight HERE.

I thought I'd share one of my favorite Quiche recipes.

I love this dish because it is so simple and coupled with a nice salad or soup
can make a wonderful meal in under an hour.
One of the things that makes this recipe special is that you can substitute
just about anything you have on hand.
I've substituted ham or sausage for the bacon; califlower, spinach, tomatoes or sundried tomatoes for the broccoli and any kind of cheese I may have lying around the house.

I also add onions sometimes if I feel like chopping them.

Every variation I've tried has come out really well and it's a great way to reincarnate leftovers.

The best is my kids love it...and so does JR, but that goes without saying, doesn't it?

Here's the basic recipe:

Broccoli Cheese Quiche

Pastry for 10 inch single pie crust
1 ½ cups chopped broccoli
1 package cooked bacon, crumbled
1 ½ cups grated cheddar or swiss cheese
4 eggs
1 ½ cups cream
¼ teaspoon salt
Dast of Pepper
Dash of Nutmeg

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Arrange broccoli, bacon and cheese in pastry lined pie plate.
Beat together eggs, cream and spices in bowl.
Pour the mixture over cheese, bacon and broccoli.
Place in preheated oven for 35-40 minutes
(or until top is golden brown and knife inserted 1 inch from the edge comes out clean)

Let sit 15 minutes before cutting.
(don't skip this step or it won't cut nicely and you'll have a mess!)

Makes 8 main dish servings
