Broccoli, Ham and Swiss Crustless Quiche is so simple to throw to gather and definitely a stunner on the table. Fresh broccoli sautés with onion, mushroom, garlic and time and mixed into beaten eggs with Swiss cheese and cooked ham. Serves 6 in 1 hour.
This Easter I plan to brunch. The girls are older so sleeping in is definitely a must, which also means a late and lazy breakfast is on the menu. In the past, I’ve usually made biscuits and gravy, but this year I’m making a quiche. Because with quiche you get SIDES and I love side dishes with breakfast.
On the menu is this broccoli, ham and swiss quiche, breakfast potatoes and a simple arugula salad. Is this not the brunch of your dreams? It’s also extremely simple and easy to pull together.
To Make This Broccoli Ham and Swiss Crustless Quiche You Will Need:
- small broccoli florets
- diced yellow onion
- sliced mushrooms
- a clove garlic
- fresh thyme
- Swiss cheese
- cooked ham
- kosher salt
- freshly ground black pepper
Start by adding a teaspoon of light olive oil to a 10-inch skillet and heat on medium to medium-low. To the pan, add in 2 cups of broccoli florets, 1 cup diced onion and a pinch of kosher salt. Stir and sauté for 8 to 10 minutes until the veggies have softened.
In the pan with the broccoli and onions, add in 1 cup of sliced mushrooms along with a small pinch of salt and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes.
To the mixture, add the minced garlic clove and teaspoon chopped fresh thyme, stir and cook 1 minute. Because the mixture will be hot, you risk scrambling the eggs when you add them. With that said, it’s best to remove the skillet off of the heat and allow the mixture to cool a bit.
Crack 6 large eggs into a mixing bowl. Then using a whisk, beat them until thick and frothy. Season with a little salt and pepper to taste or about a pinch or two of both.
Try not to over season as the ham and cheese tend to be salty.
Add in 1 cup diced cooked ham and 2 cups grated Swiss cheese.
Once the broccoli mushroom mixture has cooled a bit and is no long hot (but a little warm is fine) add it into the bowl with the eggs, ham and cheese. Use a rubber spatula and mix to combine.
Pour the quiche mixture into a greased 9-inch pie plate or quiche dish and then bake the whole thing in your preheated oven for 40 minutes. Rotate the dish halfway through baking. Doing this will ensure even baking and perfect browning.
Why hello, gorgeous quiche!
Finally, slice this gorgeous quiche (I know, it’s almost too pretty to cut into!) and then serve it with breakfast potatoes and a fresh arugula salad!
Besides smelling amazing, I can’t wait until you taste this. Ham and Swiss is a known classic flavor profile but it’s a delicious one and then throw in broccoli?! SO GOOD. The subtle garlic and thyme gives this breakfast a homey quality and is utterly scrumptious.
Come back tomorrow because I will be sharing the recipe for those breakfast potatoes. 😉
