Recipe: How to make an easy and delicious quiche with only 5 simple ingredients.

At almost every large gathering, I serve little, bite sized quiches.  I may change up the vegetable and the type of cheese that I use, but the concept is always the same.  It's a quick mixture of five very simple ingredients baked to perfection in a mini muffin pan.  Every single time I make them, at least one person goes out of their way to rave about how delicious they are and to ask for the recipe.  Most recently, a friend of mine called them "the fancy quiches" before trying to get the top secret recipe out of me.  If only they knew how simple the quiches really are...

Recipe: Simple & Delicious Broccoli Quiche


   Ingredients

(1) Package Chopped Frozen Broccoli
(1) Cup Pancake Mix
(1/2) Cup Vegetable Oil
(4) Eggs
(1/2) Cup Finely Chopped or Shredded Cheese
(1/2) Onion, diced
Salt & Pepper to taste

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350*.

Defrost the frozen chopped broccoli fully and then pour into a towel.  Squeeze all of the water out of the vegetable and set aside.  In a large mixing bowl, add the vegetable oil, eggs, cheese, very finely diced onion, salt, and pepper.  Beat together thoroughly.  Add the broccoli and mix together.  Add the pancake mix into the batter slowly and stir together thoroughly.

Spray a mini muffin tray with oil.  Pour the batter into the mini muffin tray, filling each hole just below the rim.  These quiches will rise as they cook.  Bake for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

What is your favorite quiche?

  1. We love quiches, so I make them all the time. I love mushroom and Swiss, and cheddar broccoli. I don’t use a pancake mix though. Mine don’t use any type of flour and I quit making the kind with a crust. Just eggs, milk, cheese and veggie. Over the weekend, I made a zucchini mozzarella one that also had cottage cheese in it. Very yummy!

    1. Oh they sound divine, minus the cottage cheese. I've never tasted it, but the texture is just unappetizing to me.

  2. Oy, missy, so ya use a ready made mix and call it a secret recipe? LOL Reminds me of that time when my sweet sistah Theresa, we do ever so love her, raved about her greatgreatgreatgrandma's secret recipe for beans and then it turned out it is just beans from the can baked in the oven with ketchup LOOOOL I was like dayummm! I know she will be reading this LOL

    1. LOL, well, pancake mix is just flour, baking soda, and sugar already mixed together. I could do that myself, but why dirty all the measuring cups!? Your comment has me laughing because many of our "ingredients" are a mixture of other ingredients. Even our seasonings can come premixed!

    2. Yes, even your tea ain't friggin tea but has instant juice granules and flavours added to it, like what the eff? Our tea is literally just pure leaves washed by the morning dew and fresh highland air and plucked from untouched plants by a granny who lives with her goats in the mountains billions of miles away from other people LOL

    3. Look here, Mister. There is no damn ketchup in my granny's beans. It's BBQ sauce and those beans are ALWAYS the first thing gone at every gathering. I made 2 pans for Mariah's graduation party last month and there were none left to bring home. But we sure did have a boat load of potato salad, mac and cheese, green beans and dinner rolls coming back with us. We ate those for days afterwards and I swore I wasn't touching those again for the rest of the summer, I was so sick of them by the time they were gone.

      I am not a huge fan of premixed seasonings though. Not that I won't use them in a pinch, but I have all the spices my cabinet can hold and like to toss whatever my heart is telling me into each dish.

  3. I have never made a quiche with pancake mix, but I like the shortcut. I've used pancake mix for onion ring batter and love how those turn out (Dezzy bitched about that too LOL)

    1. And technically this above ain't really quiche but just savoury muffin. Quiche is basically a savoury pie, you need a crust on the bottom and filling on top, and this is all mixed together. I don't know why Jax calls it a quiche LOL Probably because it sounds fancy.

    2. This is totally a quiche! If you go to the store by us and order a premade quiche, it looks like this. Maybe I should call it an American Quiche???? LOL

    3. Although, to be fair, I'll admit that I put it in the mini muffin tray so it's easier to serve to large groups of people. Normally, they look like a cake.

    4. It defo ain't a quiche without the crust and filling, but you may call it a soufflé to make it sound fancy LOOOL It really could pass for a souffle. I used to make a lot of cheese souffle back in the days...

  4. Looks very healthy and hearty! Thanks for the recipe. Our favourite quiche is "chicken and feta cheese quiche".
