For me, there’s nothing better than having an easy quiche recipe in your back pocket. Quiche is perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Plus, it can be served hot or room temperature and still be delicious.
Quiche can be customized in millions of ways so they will please many palates. And the main ingredient is eggs so they are ultra affordable.
This easy quiche recipe has only five ingredients but still tastes like it came from a gourmet cookbook. I think broccoli cheese is such a crowd-pleasing combination because it pleases meat eaters and vegetarians alike.
Throwing together this easy broccoli cheddar quiche is a snap and won’t clog up your grocery list with a lot of ingredients! Simply serve it with fruit or a side salad and you have a perfect meal.
Add it to your weekly meal plan for a simple dinner that won’t take a lot to make. It makes a great Meatless Monday option.
