No Crust Broccoli Mushroom Quiche

Hi there! 

I promised to post a recipe I cooked on meerkat today.  And I never like to disappoint, so here without further ado I present to you:

No Crust Broccoli Mushroom Quiche as made LIVE ON MEERKAT

I needed five eggs but only had four, so here is exactly what I made today. Five eggs would work perfectly too. I make this without crust to save fat and calories, turns out it also saves time too!  I used broccoli and mushrooms today, because that is what I happened to have in the fridge. Quiche is very versatile so it lends itself to a variety of ingredients, the only limit is your imagination!

HUBBY RATED this 5/5


1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp chopped onion
1 cup chopped fresh broccoli
1 cup cooked mushrooms or canned
4 Large Eggs
1/3 Cup Milk
¼ cup sharp cheddar cheese
pinch of salt, pepper or your favorite seasoning blend, mine is Tony Chachere’s
Non stick spray or olive oil

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2.Saute onion in 1 tbsp olive oil over medium heat about five minutes until softened, but not browned.
3.Spray an eight inch pie plate with non stick spray or use a brush to apply olive oil to the interior of the pie plate. 
4. Place broccoli, mushrooms in the pie plate. 
5. Beat eggs in a bowl with milk, add onions from the sauté pan and stir into mixture, season lightly with seasoning of choice then pour mixture over the ingredients in the pie plate.
6. Carefully transfer pie plate to oven and set timer for twenty minutes. Check by wiggling the plate to see if the middle is jiggly or use a knife to insert near the center to see if it comes out clean (except for a bit of cheese perhaps).
7. Cool a few minutes on a heat tolerant surface, then slice with a serrated knife using a sawing motion.  Use a spatula to gently lift up and remove the slice, the first one is always the hardest!e
