Oh hey friends. So is anyone else struggling with the time change? Does it not feel like this week has been dragging away and it's just now Thursday?
Well, if it has, this is my light at the end of the tunnel: Cheesy Broccoli Green Onion Quiche aka my favorite quiche of all time. My mom used to make this recipe when I was a little kid and throughout the years it's stuck with me. Made with broccoli, green onion, and some swiss and cheddar cheese, it's just so easy, simple and good.
Seriously though. Layer cheese on the bottom of the crust, pour the broccoli and green onion on top, cover with beaten eggs and milk and add more cheese slash sprinkle with some shredded cheese. Because, cheese. Aaaand maybe a little more shredded cheese...
So I know this Cheesy Broccoli Green Onion Quiche is nutritious and all because there's veggies, but basically I find any quiche to be an excellent vehicle for cheese (in case you hadn't noticed). Which is what makes this recipe the perfect comfort food after a particularly long day.
Having said that, this quiche is also a wonderful brunch recipe! You can even switch the broccoli out for asparagus to make it a little more breakfast friendly.
Really you guys. I don't even know what I'm writing anymore. The time change has left my brain in a severe deficit. So if it's been one of those days, or one of those weeks even, like apparently it has been for me, this Cheesy Broccoli Green Onion Quiche is the perfect go-to recipe for you. Now excuse me while I chow down on some serious comfort food.Print
