Broccoli Ham Quiche Recipe

"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."

"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."

"Wow. This smells delicious in the oven and tastes so good!!! The flavors and egg consistency is wonderful. I was a little nervous because the last time I tried to make quiche, it didn't turn out. I would consider this recipe to be a big success.

I was using leftovers and had to modify it slightly. I used ~1.25 cups of shredded cheddar cheese, probably a cup of ham, and a cup of broccoli and cauliflower, combined. I added a very small onion, diced finely. I almost had an overflow problem. I expect the recipe probably has the quantities correct!! Good luck!!
PS. Thanks to the other review, I also added less salt. I think this was appropriate!"

"My huband wanted me to make a quiche. He was down with a cold and felt terrible, so I decided to treat him to this recipe. I added a tad more broccoli and a little more ham. With the extra ham, I should have reduced the salt. Actually, everything that could go wrong did go wrong (my fault for not reading the entire instructions). In spite of cooking it 100 degrees hotter than the instructions - it still came out great. My husband had two servings, he liked it so much!! This will be a keeper in our house."
