Ham, Broccoli, and Cheddar Crustless Quiche

Updated: Jul 9, 2019


My 4-year-old son's favorite food is quiche: eggs and veggies in cheesy goodness, what's not to like?  Usually I make mushroom and cheddar quiche, but this week I wanted something different. Ham, broccoli, and cheddar made a fantastic combination.

Ham, Broccoli, and Cheddar Quiche

Serves 6-8

  • 1&1/2 cups broccoli florets, fresh or frozen, preferably organic

  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, preferably from grassfed cows

  • pinch celtic sea salt

  • 1 tsp green onion, minced (green parts only)

  • 1 small clove garlic, minced

  • 4 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded

  • 9 eggs, preferably from pastured hens

  • 3/4 tsp celtic sea salt

  • 3/4 cup plain whole milk yogurt

  • 2 ounces chopped ham

  1. Chop up the broccoli into smallish bits. 

  2. Melt the butter in a well-seasoned 10-inch cast iron skillet over medium heat.  Add the broccoli and sprinkle with a pinch of salt.

  3. Saute the broccoli for 5-10 minutes, until it has released its moisture cooked down a bit.

  4. Add the green onion and garlic, and saute for a minute or so, until they are fragrant.  Turn off heat and allow to cool some.

  5. Meanwhile, break the eggs into a large bowl.  Add 3/4 tsp celtic sea salt and beat with a fork. Stir in the cheddar cheese, ham, and yogurt.

  6. Stir the egg mixture into the skillet with the broccoli.

  7. Place the skillet into a 350 degree F oven, and bake for 30-35 minutes, until the quiche is set in the center and beautifully browned on the edges.

  8. Let cool a bit, then slice and serve!  This pairs wonderfully with crispy fried potatoes and a green salad dressed with vinaigrette.  

  9. Store leftovers in a covered dish in the fridge.  They reheat well in a toaster oven at 250 degrees for 20 minutes.
