Broccoli Cheddar Quiche

We got chickens and we got fresh eggs so what better to do than find clean recipes that
incorporate EGGS!!  

My husband said when we got the chickens that once they start producing we wouldn't be able to keep up with the supply - well there you have my mission to find healthy recipes that incorporate eggs!! 

Even though tonight isn't Tasty Tuesday and should really be a post about Workout Wednesday I HAVE TO SHARE THIS RECIPE because it was really that good!! 

I bring you Broccoli Cheddar Quiche - complete with homemade crust!!

1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup cold water

Quiche Filling-
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 bunches broccoli, chopped
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
4 Large Eggs
1 cup milk of choice
3/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper, 1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes

For Crust -

2. Whisk oil and water with fork in separate bowl
3. Pour oil and water mixture into flour and mix with fork
4. Press into 9' pie crust

For Quiche -
1. In large skillet, add 2 tablespoons olive oil on medium high heat. Add onion and cook until translucent. Add garlic and cook for one minute, Add broccoli and 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Continue to cook until broccoli is bright green. Remove mixture from heat.
2. Meanwhile whisk the eggs, milk, and remaining spices together in a small to medium bowl.
3. Add broccoli mixture to quiche crust. Sprinkle cheddar cheese over top and then pour egg mixture to cover broccoli mixture (but don't be concerned if not all broccoli is covered - I had a few pieces sticking out and it all turned out great!)
4. Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes or until the center shows no more liquid.

Tonight we paired it with a side salad with red leaf lettuce, spinach, zucchini and tomato. We topped the salad with homemade balsamic vinaigrette.
