Ingredients
  

  • 1 frozen store-bought pie crust, defrosted
  • cups broccoli, chopped
  • 6 slices of bacon, chopped
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 400°. Coat a 9-inch pie dish with non-stick spray and set aside.
  • In a large skillet, cook the chopped bacon until crisp. Remove and let cool on a paper towel. In the same skillet, add broccoli and cook until over medium heat until broccoli begins to soften (about 5-10 minutes). Set aside to cool.
  • Carefully unroll the defrosted pre-made pie crust and place it in the pie pan. Crimp the edges around the pie plate.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper until well combined.
  • Sprinkle the chopped bacon, broccoli, and ½ cup of cheese on the bottom of the pie crust. Then pour egg mixture over top. Finish with the other ½ cup of cheddar cheese.
  • Place in oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the center is set and no longer wiggly & the eggs are cooked through. Don't overcook it! (see note below about crust burning!!!)
  • Let cool for 15 minutes before slicing, or refrigerate for up to 5 days and enjoy later!

Notes

  • If your crust starts to brown in the oven (mine did about 15 minutes in) place tinfoil around the edges of your pie plate to protect the crust from burning.
  • Freeze Instructions: After baking, let the quiche cool completely and cover tightly with aluminum foil. It can be frozen for up to 3 months. Defrost in the fridge or on the counter and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
  • Don't eat meat? You can omit the bacon all together or swap for your favorite meat-free version.
