Ingredients

  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup half and half
  • 1/2 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onion
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 strips bacon, diced
  • 1/2 cup diced yellow onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped broccoli florets (chopped on the smaller side)
  • 3/4 cup shredded shredded sharp white cheddar cheese
  • 19inch pie crust

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Add the eggs, half and half, hot sauce, green onion, salt, and pepper to a large mixing bowl. Whisk together until well combined and set aside.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the diced bacon and cook for 3-5 minutes until crispy. Remove the bacon from the skillet, set aside, and let drain on paper towel.
  4. Add the onion, garlic, and broccoli to the skillet sauté for 3-5 minutes until the onion begins to become translucent and then remove from the heat.
  5. Transfer the broccoli filling mixture to the pie crust and then top with the cooked bacon and sharp cheddar cheese.
  6. Pour the egg mixture evenly over the filling. You may need to spread the green onion out a bit evenly over the top of the quiche. Bake the quiche at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the egg is set.
  7. Remove from the oven and let sit for 10 minutes before slicing.
