Broccoli Bacon Quiche


I posted this recipe last year, but didn't include a photo. It turned out so gorgeous I thought it was worth a rerun.
This recipe is very adjustable to use whatever is on hand. I had some white mushrooms so I sliced them thin and added them with the onions and garlic.

Ingredients:


3-4 strips of bacon
2 tbsp. Butter
1 Onion, minced
1/2 cup thinly sliced white mushrooms
1 tsp. Minced Garlic
2 cups Chopped Fresh Broccoli
1 (9 inch) Unbaked Pie Crust
1 cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
4 Eggs, well beaten
3/4 cups Milk
3/4 cup Half and Half
1 tsp. Salt
½ tsp. Black Pepper

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).  Fry bacon and allow to cool.  Over medium-low heat melt butter in a large saucepan (or use bacon grease) Add onions, mushrooms, garlic and broccoli. Cook slowly, stirring occasionally until the vegetables are soft. Spoon vegetables into crust, break up bacon into small pieces and sprinkle over vegetables and then sprinkle with cheese. . Combine eggs, half and half and milk. Season with salt and pepper. Pour egg mixture over vegetables, bacon and cheese. Bake in preheated oven for 35-45 minutes, or until center has set.

*You could chop the broccoli finer, but I like leaving it in larger chunks so you can really tell what is in the dish.  I made it tonight for dinner and we are having leftovers tomorrow for breakfast.
