We're lucky to have fresh fruits and vegetables year-round. I put bountiful Arizona broccoli to great use in this rich side dish. Even those who don't care for broccoli finish off big helpings. — Carol Strickland, Yuma, Arizona

"Good recipe. It had to bake for 60 minutes. I'm not sure I will put it in a water bath next time though."

"I made this on Easter Sunday for a crowd and it was a huge hit!! The only change was that I did not bake in the water bath; didn't see the point. Too rich and indulgent for anything but special occasions. Will definitely make again!"

"When i am trying a recipe for the first time, I make it exactly as written. However, I only made half this recipe because of the high fat and cholesterol. . I think it was okay, but my broccoli-loving husband and kids did not like it. Sometimes I will make changes to a recipe and try it again, but I will not bother with this one. After dinner, the recipe went into the shredder."

"I made this recipe for Easter and it was a hot mess. I followed the directions to cook in a water bath and it took over 2 hours to finish cooking in the middle. I think it calls for too many eggs and cream as the center remained liquid for over 2 hours. When finally cooked through,(about 2 1/2 hours) it just wasn't very flavorful, very blah. I know the oven temp was spot on due to 2 oven thermometers and everything else cooked one right after the other turned out fine. I would never make this again, it was more like a blah broccoli quiche. I agree with another reviewer and should have taken her advice to add some spices."

"I used this as a base to use up a bag of mixed broccoli & cauliflower -- halved and added fresh mushrooms after sauteing in olive oil. No cream so used about a cup of sour cream & a bit of milk; and 6 eggs. Added spices I knew we would like -- enjoyed and will make again!"

"This is an excellent dish. It really is just an egg bake. If you read the igredients you would gather that. I usually serve it for breakfast or lunch a long with toast and sausage. If you are terribly concerned about the fat content then cut it down! I just made this today sautéing the broccoli in 2 T of butter and covering the skillet to help the broccoli steam. I usually use 1 percent milk but had skim this week and used that. I sprinkled with cheese not using the whole amount but the pan was still covered with it and added a little chopped bacon. This is wonderful and healthy. You would never know the difference. My 11 year old son asks for this often. Try lightening it up see if you can tell a difference."

"Cut this in half for my wife and I. She took one bite and didn't care for it. I thought it was ok but I'd rather get the fat and cholesterol from something with a bit more flavor and half the labor. Will probably take the rest for coworkers."

"I made this yesterday for our women's weekly card game and it was a big hit with everyone! If you are worried about consuming too much fat then don't gobble it like a hog. Portion control is the key to most diets. Consuming up to 40 grams of fat a day is very acceptable for anyone watching their diet according to the nutirtionist at our local health center, so there is nothing wrong with this recipe. Thank you TOH for providing the Nutirional Facts allowing us to balance these delicious recipes with the rest of our daily meals."

"This is very close to a crustless veggie quiche I make. I use sharp cheddar (and usually throw in a bit of pepper jack or other cheeses for more flavor), and more veggies (mushrooms, tomatoes). And for those who don't want the high fat of whipping cream, any sort of milk will do, from half & half to 2%. I don't mess with the butter though. Just can't lose that. This is a very versatile recipe."
