My freezer is method too full proper now, you guys. So, the opposite day I got down to dissipate a few of my frozen items, and ended up making this Bacon Broccoli Cheddar Crustless Quiche. Here’s to having all of the substances available to make one thing as wonderful and decadent as this!!
And yeah, I really maintain bacon in my freezer. For bacon emergencies. No, I’m kidding. Bacon is a kind of substances that I like so as to add to recipes in small quantities so as to add a punch of taste, so after I purchase a bundle of bacon I slice it proper throughout the strips into three or 4 chunks (relying on whether or not it’s a 12oz. or 16oz. bundle) after which place them right into a freezer bag. That method I can seize out a 4oz. piece each time wanted. I add it on to a skillet frozen and simply prepare dinner over medium-low warmth till the strips thaw sufficient to separate from one another, then finally brown and crisp up.
Broccoli florets can also be one thing I all the time maintain available (nice for including to pasta, stir fry, or breakfast bowls), and the remainder of the substances (eggs, milk, Parmesan, cheddar, and seasoning salt) are issues that I all the time have, or normally have available as effectively. It’s too straightforward.
I’m positive you would additionally bake this in a big muffin tin for particular person servings! They would in all probability bake sooner, though I haven’t tried it so I can’t recommend a precise baking time. I’d simply keep watch over it and take them out when the tops are puffed and barely browned.

Take one pound of broccoli florets out of the freezer to allow them to start to thaw. Place 4oz. bacon in a skillet and prepare dinner over medium-low till very brown and crispy (my bacon was frozen and I simply positioned it within the skillet straight from the freezer with out thawing). Transfer the bacon to a paper towel lined plate to empty. Pour off many of the bacon grease, leaving only a bit within the skillet for the broccoli.
Turn the warmth beneath the skillet as much as medium-high and add the broccoli florets. Sauté the broccoli florets within the leftover bacon fats till they’re not frozen (only a few minutes, don’t over prepare dinner them). This additionally helps evaporate the surplus moisture so your quiche doesn’t find yourself soupy on the underside.
Transfer the broccoli florets to a slicing board and roughly chop them into smaller, bite-sized items.
Begin preheating the oven to 350ºF. In a medium bowl, whisk collectively four massive eggs, 1 cup milk, 1/four cup grated Parmesan, and about 1/four tsp seasoning salt. I used Avec Tous seasoning salt, however you would use one thing like Lowry’s or Tony Chachere’s.
Place the chopped broccoli, half of the 4oz. shredded cheddar, and the bacon (crumbled) right into a 9-inch pie plate that has been coated with non-stick spray. Stir them collectively till they’re evenly combined.
Place the pie plate on a baking sheet to make it simpler to move out and in of the oven as soon as it’s stuffed with liquid. Pour the milk and egg combination over the bacon, broccoli, and cheddar within the pie plate.
Sprinkle the remaining shredded cheddar excessive. Transfer it to the preheated oven and bake for 50-55 minutes, or till the middle is puffed and the perimeters are golden brown. When I say “puffed” I imply that it has puffed to roughly the identical peak because the outer rim and is not “depressed.”
All of the puffiness will deflate because it cools and the steam releases, however the Bacon Broccoli Cheddar Crustless Quiche ought to look a bit one thing like this. 🙂 Totally delicious! 😍
Wait about 5 minutes, then slice it into eight items and serve!
