We'ew not big fans of rosemary, so I left that out. And I substituted some locally made cheddar. Very good! Also, I made extra filing and baked some quiche muffins, which were a great breakfast the next morning. Going to try with asparagus instead of broccoli next time.
So I am not a good cook--I hardly ever make anything that doesn't come out of a box or my freezer. But I wanted a quiche. This one was DELICIOUS. It took much longer to cook than it said in the recipe, but I imagine that's probably a fault of my oven. It still came out great. Love the herbs added to it, mmm.
I tried this recipe last night with some leftover ham. Since I did not have all of the required ingredients, these are my substitutions: Cheddar in place of the mozzarella, frozen broccoli rather than fresh, heavy cream in place of the milk and I omitted the rosemary, not having any available. I thought this was very good and will definitely make this again. It is a wonderful use of extra ham and a welcome change from a casserole, simple ham and eggs or the ever-popular ham sandwich.
For a first timer, this quiche is tastefully different from the usual holiday dishes I used to cook. This is really a healthy and delicious diversion! My husband gave it a 5!!! I must confess I mixed cauliflower with broccoli.
My family asks for quiche several times a month and I like to use a variety of recipes. I've never used herbs in my quiche and this was a wonderful change!
I will definitely make this again.
