Broccoli Quiche

In my search for recipes to use the wonderful eggs we get from our chickens, I came across a recipe I used to make years ago, Broccoli Quiche.  It’s still delicious and very easy to make. You can use a frozen pie crust or make your own.

INGREDIENTS:

2 tablespoons organic butter

1 organic onion, minced

1 teaspoon minced garlic

2 cups chopped fresh organic broccoli

1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust

1 1/2 cups shredded raw milk cheese, whatever you like: Swiss, Cheddar, etc

4 pastured eggs, well beaten

1 1/2 cups raw, whole milk

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 tablespoon organic butter, melted

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Over medium-low heat melt butter in a large saucepan. Add onions,

garlic and broccoli. Cook slowly, stirring occasionally until the

vegetables are soft. Spoon vegetables into crust and sprinkle with

cheese.

3. Combine eggs and milk. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in melted

butter. Pour egg mixture over vegetables and cheese.

  1. 4.Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutess, or until center has set. It can take up to an hour.
