Ingredients

  1. Butter, for ramekins
  2. Coarse salt
  3. 1 package (10 ounces) frozen broccoli florets
  4. 6 large eggs
  5. 1/2 cup half-and-half
  6. Ground pepper
  7. 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  8. 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese (3 ounces)
  9. Crusty bread and mixed salad (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter four 8-ounce ramekins (or a 9-inch pie dish); set aside.
  2. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Add broccoli; cook 1 minute. Drain well; transfer to a cutting board, and blot dry with paper towels. Chop coarsely.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, half-and-half, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and nutmeg. Stir in broccoli and cheese.

I love this! I got a ton of ramekins for Christmas - 6 oz and 10 oz, I think - and I've been wanting to use them. And I love quiche, it's so tasty and CHEAP! And I think little individual quiches like this would be totally adorable.
