When Bush the First declared he hated broccoli, it was obvious Barbara had never whipped up an Easy Broccoli Quiche for the old boy. This is a good recipe which turns out just how I like my quiche--fast, cheap and tasty. As for the "wetness" and "wateriness" issue raised by some other reviewers: Ladies, ladies, ladies! This problem is easily solved. First, repeat after me: "I will not purchase frozen broccoli. I will not purchase frozen broccoli. I will not purchase frozen broccoli." Your turn. Good, thanks. Secondly, do not SPRINKLE in the cheese, put it in first and PRESS it to the bottom of the pie crust, forming a sort raincoat for the crust--a cheese raincoat, if you will. If you feel silly for not thinking of this yourself, do not despair. I consider myself somewhat of a wetness expert, for two reasons. First, I reside in the Pacific Northwest, where, when it isn't drizzling, sprinkling or spitting, it's most likely raining, pouring or (on rare occasions) hailing. As for the second reason I consider myself a wetness expert...I live with a two-year-old. 'Nuff said.

Most people who gave this recipe a high rating did so with significant changes. The recipe as written has many flaws. Even though I used fresh broccoli, mine came out soggy. One onion is too over powering -- 1/2 an onion is plenty. Plus, 30 minutes was much too short. I needed to bake it for 50 minutes for the middle to set and for the crust to get flaky. The "Quiche" recipe on this site does not have any of these problems and can be modified to add broccoli. I will not be making this again.

Thank you!!! This recipe is excellent! I have made it twice in the 2 weeks I had the recipe. My husband and I love it! I changed the recipe to our taste. I crisped 4 slices of bacon first. I used 2 1/4 cups of fresh broccoli, 3/4 of a onion minced (whole onion I thought was too much), 1 bell pepper thinly sliced, 3/4 cup of mozzarella cheese, 3/4 cup of cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup of evap milk, 3 eggs (I don't like eggy quiche), 2 tbls of butter, 1 garlic clove minced, 1/4 cup of cheddar cheese to spread at bottom of crust, 1 homemade pie crust (Stephanie's basic flaky crust at allrecipes). I followed one of the reviews about cutting down the milk and eggs and also adding the bacon, bell pepper and cheddar cheese. This made it fantastic! I also followed one of the reviews and mixed all the ingredients together in a bowl and I sprinkled 1/4 cup of cheedar cheese at the bottom of crust, poured in the contents and let sit in the oven until it set. If you are not using fresh veges or homemade pie crust you are missing out on the best tasting quiche you have ever had. Next time I am going to try using other things like, spinach, chicken, etc. Thanks again. Be Blessed
