Quiche is just Crustless egg casserole
And, to be honest, I think the crust just gets in the way of the flavor to begin with.
If your husband or boyfriend says something about real men not eating quiche, just call it egg casserole or frittata.
The original recipe had ham rather than broccoli. But, since I don’t eat ham, and I wanted a little more veggies in my day, I substituted in the broccoli.
I have a great love of broccoli, and lots of recipes that use the green veggie. Take a look at my broccoli recipes here.
Also, after I started making the quiche, I remembered that I had leeks in the ‘fridge. So, I exchanged the onions for leeks.
Feel free to play around with the quiche and add what your family likes.

Homemade bread crumbs
I make my own bread crumbs out of the heels of loaves of bread, either homemade or store-bought.
When all that’s left in the bag is the heels, or if I think we are done eating the loaf, I’ll throw the bag in the freezer. Then, when the bags start to get unruly in there, I’ll toast up the bread and pulse it in the food processor.
Good quality, mixed bread crumbs. And, it saves me from having to throw away those bread heels.
