What really brings the flavor to life in my broccoli quiche recipe is adding some rosemary, leaf thyme, ground cloves along with salt and pepper while browning the onions and garlic along with the silky egg-cheese custard.

Servings: 8
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 medium onion finely chopped
  • 2 cups of chopped fresh broccoli
  • 1-1/2 cups of Cheddar cheese
  • ½ teaspoons leaf thyme
  • ½ teaspoons of rosemary
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • ½ teaspoons black pepper
  1. After you chop the vegetables, take out a skillet and fry the onions and garlic in the olive oil until golden brown. Add the salt, pepper, cloves, thyme, and rosemary as you brown to intensify the flavor as those seasonings bloom in the pan.
  2. While they are browning, I usually like to whip up my oil pie crust. It will feel greasy so do not get alarmed. You’ll just form a greasy ball and push it into a greased quiche dish.
  3. Grate the cheeses next.
  4. Next, pour the milk and stir in the eggs in a large measuring cup.
  5. Layer the broccoli, onions, and garlic in the waiting crust first, then add the cheese before pouring the milk-egg mixture over it.
  6. Bake in a 400-degree oven for about 50 minutes.
  7. Test with a slender knife to see if anything sticks for testing and doneness.
  8. ENJOY!
