Crustless Broccoli Quiche

One of the websites I follow is the  They posts recipes that are surgery friendly, and help with reset.  I found this recipe there and modified it a bit.


  • vegetable cooking spray
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup ricotta or cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups cooked broccoli tops (used roasted)
  • 4 ounces shredded cheese (I used Swiss)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • a few grates of a fresh nutmeg
  • Ground Mustard – I love this in my quiches or breakfast casseroles.


Spray a glass or ceramic baking dish with the vegetable cooking spray.  Preheat oven to 325 degrees.I had leftover roasted broccoli that I used.Whisk eggs, ricotta, milk, seasoning in a large bowl until well blended and light colored.  Stir in broccoli and cheese.  Pour into baking dish, and bake 35-40 minutes or until knife testing the custard near center comes out clean.  Center should still have a bit a of wiggle and top slightly puffed and golden.  Cool slightly, serve warm rather than hot. Yummy.  I didn’t miss having a crust at all.  Moist, and the broccoli being roasted added more of a nutty flavor to it.

I will make this again.
