Cheese and Broccoli Quiche

Broccoli quiche is a tasty way to enjoy a nutritious vegetable such as broccoli, along with the usual egg and cheese - a winning combination.

For a drier quiche, press the cheese into the bottom of the crust and make sure to use fresh, not frozen broccoli.

Quiche is ideal to serve at tea parties or at brunch because it is light, yet filling and it can easily be made ahead of time. Small tart pans, 4 5/8 inches, can be used for individual servings.
