Ham Broccoli Crustless Quiche
This quiche is so easy to put together and you can use any combination of meat and vegetables. I happened to have some left over ham from Easter in the freezer and broccoli. Bacon or sausage would also be excellent in this quiche.
There is no crust in this quiche and that is on purpose because I didn’t have a crust at the time and I didn’t feel like going to the trouble to make one. I was hungry and wanted to use up what I had in the fridge. There is flour in the batter which kind of binds this all together.
The onions were sauteed in a pan until they were translucent along with the garlic. The onions and garlic shouldn’t be hard or the taste too strong. After I removed them from the pan I sauteed the ham and broccoli also to heat it through and soften up the broccoli a bit. I didn’t want it to be crunchy when the quiche was done. It helped everything come together at the same time better.
This quiche is good hot or cold, for any meal of the day. I ate it for both breakfast and dinner a few days this week.
It is a great springtime meal with few ingredients and few steps to assemble. These days I am all about quick and easy. Work has been incredibly busy right now, even though everything is shut down. It’s nice to have something easy to make or already made in the fridge to just heat up. A garden salad is a nice side dish to make it a meal. A glass of pino grigio would also pair well, or an ice cold beer.
