To all you breakfast lovers out there, here is a breakfast recipe that will knock your socks off.
I came up with this recipe when I was in Korea. I wanted to make breakfast for my friends, but I wanted it to be something they could eat easily, would be toddler friendly, and in our house it had to be at least a little healthy. Well this quiche recipe is all of that! I served it with Chai. You can find the recipe for my Chai by clicking on this link.
Well, I started at 6am this morning to make sure we were able to have breakfast together. I can never sleep after my husband leaves for PT in the morning. But most of all if I can, I like to have something yummy and filling available to him when he gets back all hungry and rummaging through my kitchen for what to eat. (Not to mention I prefer he doesn’t make his own eggs, it’s always a HUGE mess!)
This recipe can also be made with just veggies and no meat.
Whole wheat pie shell
1 cup milk (I use 2%, but you can use what ever you like or have)
Shredded mild cheddar cheese
Sausage (I used turkey Kielbasa, but again, what ever you prefer)
Small head broccoli (I generally prefer and highly recommend spinach for this, but I didn’t have any at the time.)
Pre-heat your oven to 375.
In a frying pan, heat about 2 teaspoons olive oil on medium heat. Chop and add the sausage and onions. Add all seasonings to taste and sautee until browned.
Add broccoli, season with a bit more salt, and cook until broccoli is tender. NOTE: After I did this step I realized that frozen broccoli would have worked better for this dish. It is already par-boiled so it cooks up much faster and you want a tender piece of broccoli instead of a chewy one. I would personally do it over or stick to spinach for next time!
While your veggie and sausage mixture is cooking, beat the 4 eggs and 1 cup of milk together. I like to season my eggs as well with all the seasoning in this recipe. I find seasoning at each step makes for better tasting and flavorful food!
Now assemble your quiche. This is my personal choice on how to do it, but by all means feel free to do it what ever way you like.
Add a sprinkling of cheese to the bottom of the quiche.
Add your veggie mixture.
Hope you enjoy this breakfast as much as we do!!!
