Crustless Broccoli Cheddar Quiche + book #giveaway from author @DarylWoodGerber


Happy Holidays!

Are you having fun putting up decorations, baking, 
making lists and checking them twice?

Well, take a break. Today is for you!



Leave a comment below with your email, and I'll pick a winner in a few days. 

In the meantime...



From Daryl aka Avery: 

You all know how much I adore cheese and how much I adore quiche. I don't, however, adore the calories of a pie crust. I adore the FLAVOR!  But there are times, like when we're approaching the holidays and know that we're going to have more calories to consume - delicious, wonderful, sweet and savory calories - that we need something that's a little lighter. This is it!

I tweaked this recipe from Martha Stewart's recipe by using fresh broccoli and Kerrygold Dubliner Cheddar. She used frozen broccoli and some other Cheddar. I like fresh and I ADORE Kerrygold. 

This takes no time at all, which is a good thing because you're probably baking as you read this. Or you are in the grocery store viewing your cell phone. Or you are wrapping something. Or maybe you want to pull out your hair and scream Fa-la-la at the top of your lungs.

Breathe. (My favorite chant.) This is EASY to make. It works for dinner or brunch or lunch. And it keeps well so if you make four and only eat one, you can eat the other three over the next three days. How perfect is that??


CRUSTLESS BROCCOLI CHEDDAR QUICHE

2 tablespoons butter, for ramekins
1 ½ cups broccoli, cooked, cooled and coarsely chopped
6 large eggs
1/2 cup half-and-half
1/2 teaspoon each, coarse salt and ground pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (4 ounces) * I used Kerrygold Dubliner Cheddar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Butter four 8-ounce ramekins (or a 9-inch pie dish); set aside.

Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Trim broccoli and cut off florets (heads). Add broccoli florets to water. Cook 2-3 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. Transfer to a cutting board, and chop coarsely.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, half-and-half, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Stir in broccoli and cheese.


Place ramekins on a rimmed baking sheet. Using a ladle, distribute broccoli mixture evenly into ramekins.


Bake until golden brown, 35 to 40 minutes.
