Broccoli & Ham Crustless Quiche
Broccoli & Ham Crustless Quiche

Broke down and made hubby try it. 😋

So fluffy and delicious! I thought it had just the right amount of richness. Kid thought it was really good (except the edges – he wasn’t a fan of the firmer egg parts). Hubby is still not a fan. 🤔 So now I make this to share with my parents instead!

I used my stand mixer to whisk the eggs then added the cream and whisked together.

I baked mine about 32 mins – just ’til butter knife (an inch from the edge) came out *wet* but clean. But, everyone’s oven is different, so I recommend watching closely from about the 30-min mark.

This can also be made with a cheddar cheese of your choice. I’ve successfully made this in an 8″ x 8″ glass baking dish, too.

Served with cornbread (w/ butter & honey) and dinner salad, makes me feel like we’re at Marie Callender’s!

  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 cups broccoli florets, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 cup cooked ham, diced
  • 1 cup freshly shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion, chopped

  3. Melt 1 Tbsp butter over medium heat in a medium skillet on stovetop (or in inner pot of Instant Pot on Sauté – Normal function).
  4. Add chopped 1/2 cup yellow onion and sauté for 3 mins, until softening.
  5. Add diced cooked 1 cup ham and continue to sauté for 4 mins, until onions are soft.
  6. Place 2 cups bite-size broccoli florets in pie dish, spreading out evenly.

  8. Sprinkle evenly w/ shredded Swiss cheese.
  9. In a medium bowl, whisk together 6 eggs and 1 cup cream, then pour egg mixture evenly over ingredients in pie dish – resist the temptation to do any stirring!
