  • 1 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/2 small Onions
  • 4 large Egg (Whole)
  • 1 cup Half and Half Cream
  • 1 cup, shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/2 cup Tap Water
  • 1/4 tsp Thyme
  • 1/4 tsp, leaves Oregano
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Rosemary (Dried)
  • 1 lb Broccoli Flower Clusters


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Brush a 9- or 10-inch pie plate with virgin olive oil.
  3. Heat oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add diced white onion and cook until softened, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl; let cool.
  4. Add eggs to onion and lightly beat. Whisk in 1/2 and half, 1/2 cup cheese, water, thyme, oregano, salt, pepper and rosemary to blend.
  5. Cover bottom of pie plate with broccoli. Pour egg mixture over it and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese.
  6. Bake until a knife inserted in middle comes out clean and quiche is golden brown, 50 to 60 minutes.  Alternatively, these may be baked in a greased muffin tin for 15-20 minutes until fully set.  They make an easy on-the-go meal or snack.

Cooking Tip

If you decide to add other vegetables, be sure to incorporate their net carb count and cook them with the onion before putting in the oven.
