I wanted to change things up a little this weekend, and make something for breakfast. I've been cooking mainly dinners and desserts lately, so thought it would be a nice change. Plus, I had some ingredients that I needed to use up! Little tip, they have to cook in the oven for about 35 minutes, so you could probably make the mix ahead of time. Keep in the fridge overnight, so in the morning all you have to do is put them in the oven. Then you have some time to make coffee and relax :)
Recipe calls for 10oz. of frozen broccoli. Cook in a medium pot of salted water for about 1 minute, drain well and chop up.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, half-and-half, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Stir in broccoli and cheese.
Make sure you butter or spray non-stick in the ramekins. Place on a baking dish that is about 1/4 full of water. Fill each ramekin with mixture. Cook in the oven for around 35-40 minutes, or until golden brown on top.
I paired the quiche with some fresh fruit.. it was the perfect side!
Done to perfection. These were so tasty, a great way to start your day!
