Cheesy Broccoli and Ham Quiche Recipe

Cheesy Broccoli and Ham Quiche Recipe

This is a great way for overnight guests to start the day. Chock-full of cheese, ham and broccoli, the quiche features an easy crust made of frozen hash browns. And because it cooks in the microwave oven, it doesn't heat up the kitchen. -Sue Armstrong, Norman, Oklahoma
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4-6 servings


  • 2 cups frozen shredded hash brown potatoes
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup diced fully cooked ham

  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon dried minced onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  • 1. Place hash browns in a greased 9-in. microwave-safe pie plate. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 3 minutes or until thawed. Press onto the bottom and halfway up the sides of plate. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 3 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese, ham and broccoli.
  • 2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk and seasonings; pour over ham mixture. Cover and microwave at 70% power for 5-7 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting. Yield: 4-6 servings.

"This is beyond good. I used half and half cream instead of milk. I used a little less salt than called for and it's a good thing I did because the ham is very salty and this was almost too salty. Next time I'll use just 1/4t. I used equal parts mild cheddar cheese and mozzarella. I used part of a small pack of Hillshire Farms ham lunch meat, probably just 1/4 of the package and chopped it up. I used a lot more broccoli and I precooked it in the microwave.

I didn't microwave this like the recipe said to. I baked it instead on 350 degrees F for 28 minutes. Your quiche is done when a knife that's been inserted in the center comes out clean.
I think it would be best if you thawed the hash browns in a microwave-safe bowl then pressed them into a nonstick foil-lined pie plate because the hash browns stick to the glass plate a little. I also think an extra 1c. of shredded hash browns is needed."

"This was very good! I sprinkled seasoning salt on the potatoes after the first 3 minutes to give them a little taste. The quiche turned out a little rubbery, but it was delicious! I am going to try to make it in the oven next time!"

"I add diced green pepper, diced red pepper, sliced scallions, quartered cherry tomatoes, and shredded carrot to increase the vegetable content in this dish. Adding these vegetables usually increases the volume to enough for 2

9-inch pie plates. I cook them both and cool the extra one, slip it into a 1 gallon plastic freezer bag, and freeze for use within 1 month."

"Just made this. It's really good and so easy! I didn't have the dried minced onion, so I substituted with half teaspoon

of onion powder."
