Broccoli, Bacon and Mushroom Quiche

Thank you to Lori of All That Splatters for hosting this week's Saturday Blog Showcase.
My contribution this week is a broccoli quiche.  I was looking for something that I could make Moe for breakfast and that I could take to work for lunch.   This delicious recipe belongs to Linda of Eating Well ... Living Thin.  
The fact that this quiche was crustless really appealed to me.

I did make a few adjustments, adding bacon and mushrooms to the mix.   I steamed the broccoli and set it aside while the bacon fried.   The mushrooms were sliced and sauted in the bacon fat, and,then the red pepper strips were added to the same pan and quickly sauted.   The cheddar cheese I used was not low-fat.  And I baked it in a buttered square spring-form pan that was lined with buttered parchment paper.

BROCCOLI-CHEESE QUICHE BITES
Source:  Eating Well ... Living Thin
Vegetable cooking spray
2 cups broccoli florets
1/4 cup diced red pepper
4 eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Dash cayenne pepper
3 tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1 cup shredded low-fat cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan
Cook the broccoli and red pepper in boiling, salted water for 5 minutes, or until just tender. Place in colander to drain well.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 10 or 12-inch baking dish with the vegetable spray and set aside.
In a large bowl whisk the eggs, salt, pepper, cayenne, and flour until well blended. Whisk in the milk. In prepared casserole spread the broccoli mixture. Layer on the green onions and shredded cheddar cheese. Carefully pour the egg mixture over the top. Sprinkle with the greated Parmesan. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until set in the center. Serve hot or room temperature. Makes 10 servings.

  2. Oh Ann, this one sounds scrumptious! I've got a round spring-form pan & all the ingredients in the house to try doing one. Hubby can just eat around the broccoli...he's not a fan, but I'm making it anyway.

    Don't be surprised if you see it in my next Sat. Blog Showcase! I seem to want to copy you all the time. :-)

    Thanks for sharing this one.
    fondly,
    Rett

  5. This looks delicious. I agree with the crustless - easier and fewer empty calories. I can only seem to get it together to post with you every second week. Sorry!

  8. I'd like to try a crustless quiche, that sounds appealing with I don't feel like making pastry.

  12. Looks delish, often the worst catered quiches are because of the weird crusts. Will be subscribing to your blog now!

  14. Oh dear. Crust or no crust, I'd be in trouble if that quiche were to be placed in front of me.
