I developed this recipe in my kitchen one busy afternoon when I looked in the fridge and there wasn't much there. With no time to shop, I used what I had. Now this nice and easy dish is a suppertime standby.—Dixie Terry, Goreville, Illinois


  • 1-1/2 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, julienned
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large skillet, saute broccoli and red pepper in oil. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Spoon into a greased 9-in. square baking dish. In another large bowl, combine eggs, milk, 3/4 cup cheese, thyme and salt.
  2. Pour over the broccoli mixture. Bake, uncovered, 25-30 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting.
