No Special Ingredients Needed for Broccoli Quiche
As you look over the ingredient list you'll see most of the items are staple pantry items and if you don't have a particular ingredient, no worries, they're easy to find in any grocery store.
- If you'd like to give this quiche a kick, use pepper jack cheese in place of the cheddar.
- This quiche can be baked in advance and then warmed just before serving.
- If you prefer, you can use diced ham in place of the bacon.
- I used Bisquick in this recipe.
- While I make this quiche in a springform tart pan, a deep dish pie pan or a similar size oven safe skillet would also work. Just make certain it is indeed deep.
When Can this Quiche be Served?
When it comes to these sorts of savory pies, in my opinion, there's no wrong time of day to serve them. Quiche can be served for breakfast, brunch, lunch or supper. Add a fruit medley or a crisp salad, and it's meal-time in no-time.
