Reviews for Broccoli Ham Quiche
"I've just made this. I didn't use ham, thyme, or rosemary. I used a little finely diced white onion in place of green onion. I used 1/4c. less milk. I tripled the broccoli to 1.5c. and precooked it for 8 minutes in the microwave the night before. DON'T USE IT RAW! I can't imagine it getting cooked through. I didn't use a crust. I lined my 10" pie plate with nonstick foil and baked this for 55 minutes. I think it was done five or so minutes before. This is excellent and I'll use just half the amount of cheese next time!"
"It was fantastic!! I made mine in a 10.5 inch fluted quiche/tart pan. Used one of those premade boxed pie crusts which fit the pan perfectly. Did not grease pan, it didn't stick or overflow the pan. Since mine was in a larger, shallower pan, it only had to cook about 40 minutes. It was a huge hit with the entire family. Served it with a fruit salad for a complete meal."
"Yet another flawed recipe on this site. You must grease the foil or it will stick to the pastry. Also there is way too much liquid and it overflows when you fill the crust. I would cut the milk down to 3/4 to 1 cup."
"Even though I didn't make the crust and used 1/2 and 1/2 Creamo in place of milk, this was a very tasty quiche and I'd definitely make it again. I might add a bit more ham and broccoli the next time, but a keeper nonetheless."
"A great way to use some of the leftover Christmas or Easter ham."
"This is the most flavorful quiche I have ever made. I made it for a group of ladies and they raved over it. Love the spices in it! Delicious!"
"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."
