Why Crustless?

And you might have noticed that this quiche is crustless.

That’s simply because many in my family are not big fans of pie crust in general, so it’s just easier for me to make quiches crustless.

But you are certainly welcome to use any gluten-free pie crust you love for this quiche.

Just follow the directions on the gluten-free pie shell and make the filling as directed on our recipe.

Two ready-made gluten-free pie crusts I personally enjoy are Wholly Gluten-Free and Whole Foods brand.

So let’s make it!

All you need is 10 ingredients:

broccoli

onion

salt and pepper

half and half

milk  (we’ve used both 2% and whole milk)

fresh chives

And it comes together quickly in 4 simple steps!

All you do is:

  1. Saute the onions, then add the broccoli, season with salt and pepper and saute until tender crisp.
  2. Whisk the eggs, half and half, milk, salt, pepper and chives.
  3. Spread sauteed vegetables in the pie pan and top with cheddar cheese.
  4. Top with the egg mixture and bake!

Pro Tips:

I saute the vegetables before baking so that they are melt in your mouth delicious when the quiche is ready.

I like to saute onions first until they are translucent and tender, then add the broccoli for just 5 minutes or so and cook it until it is tender crisp. For softer broccoli, you can cook longer.

To speed up the cooking process and make sure the broccoli softens without burning, I will often cover the broccoli while it cooks.

After you’ve assembled the quiche, you simply bake it for 30-35 minutes.

I usually check at 30 minutes and if a toothpick or knife come out clean, it’s done! If you want to cook an additional 5 minutes and the top is golden, I will cover loosely with foil for the last 5 minutes.

Let the baked quiche rest for 5-10 minutes before serving, and enjoy!

You’ll have a perfect quiche with great texture and lots of flavor!

And the best part is that it reheats well whether you are:

  • making it ahead (in which case, I will cover with foil and place the entire pan back in the oven)
  • or heating up a leftover slice for lunch (in which case, a microwave works well).

Hope you love it as much as we do!

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups chopped broccoli cut into 1/2 inch to 1 inch pieces , stems mostly removed
  • 1 medium onion, chopped approximately 1 - 1.25 cups
  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided
  • ½ teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • cup half and half
  • 1 cup milk we've used both 2% and whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped chives

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and lightly spray a 9 1/2 inch pie pan with oil of choice.
  • In a large saute pan, heat 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil or enough to coat the bottom of the pan over medium heat. When oil is hot (shimmering but not burning), add the onion. Saute 5-7 minutes or until tender and translucent.
  • Add broccoli, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper, saute an additional 5 minutes, covering if possible, until bright green and tender crisp. Set aside. Cook longer for softer broccoli.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk eggs. Then add half and half, milk, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and chives and whisk to combine.
  • Spoon sauteed onion broccoli mixture into the prepared pie pan and spread evenly. Top with shredded cheddar cheese.
  • Pour egg mixture on top of it all.
  • Bake for 30 – 35 minutes or until quiche is set in the center, and a knife or toothpick comes out clean. It will puff up and brown a bit. I usually check at 30 minutes and if a toothpick or knife come out clean, it’s done! If you want to cook an additional 5 minutes and the top is golden, cover loosely with foil for the last 5 minutes.
  • Let rest 5-10 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
  • Any extra stores well in the refrigerator and reheats well*.

Notes

*Reheating:
If making the entire quiche ahead of serving, cover pan with foil and reheat in the oven at 350 degrees until warm in the center.
If reheating a leftover slice, a microwave is a great option.
