Quiche is a brunch staple and you can’t go wrong serving your guests this Broccoli Cheddar Quiche. Cheddar and broccoli are familiar partners and when combined with creamy eggs, the entire dish just zings at first bite!

1 bunch broccoli
4 eggs
1-1/4 cups milk
2 cups grated Vermont cheddar cheese
1/2 cup grated Romano cheese
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon chopped fresh chives
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 unbaked pie shell

Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Trim bottom of broccoli. Cut stems into slices and microwave in covered dish until soft but still bright green, about 4 minutes. Chop in food processor. Repeat with florets, but microwave about 3 minutes.

Whisk eggs in large bowl; add milk. In another large bowl, toss cheeses, flour, herbs, and spices. Pour egg-milk mixture over cheeses and stir. Add broccoli. Pour filling into unbaked pie shell.

Place on bottom rack of oven and bake 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees and bake 40 minutes longer. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.
