If You Don’t Have Cheese
You may think that quiche is something that only fancy people make, but that isn’t true. It’s actually a very budget-friendly meal. Of course, you can make it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner and it’s a fantastic meal option. Pick up eggs the next time they are on sale! The ingredients are also interchangeable, so if you don’t have cheese, ham, or broccoli, use what you have on hand that you like in combination!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a 9-inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
In the baking dish, toss together gruyere cheese, ham, and broccoli. In a mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and seasonings.
Pour mixture over ham and gently move ham and cheese until the egg mixture is evenly distributed. Bake for 45 minutes or until the eggs are completely set. Remove from the oven and allow the quiche to rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.

What can I serve with a quiche?
As I mentioned before, I do love serving this quiche by itself, but you can also serve it with a fruit or alongside other breakfast items. You can’t go wrong making pancakes, sausage, or even French toast. This quiche is super filling! It’s also a great option to take along to different potlucks and family gatherings.
Can I serve a quiche cold?
If you enjoy eating your food items cold, YES you can serve this quiche cold. Of course, that is a matter of preference. Some people enjoy their quiche cold and for others, they need it to be piping hot. What type of person are you?
How do I store a quiche?
You can store the quiche in the fridge for 3-5 days. Just make sure it is covered with Saran Wrap or aluminum foil. I like to wrap it twice to make sure it stays as fresh as possible while it’s being stored in the fridge.
Can I freeze this after baking it?
When I make a quiche, I always make two. They are easily freezable and make for a simple dish when you don’t want to cook. Again, make sure you double wrap it to keep it fresh! Lay it flat in the freezer. Pull out of the freezer when you are ready to warm it back up! I always cook my quiche before I freeze it.
