Onion Broccoli Quiche Recipe

Onion Broccoli QuicheQuiches are a delicious and elegant way to serve eggs, cheese and vegetables together in a flaky crust. We love quiche and make it several different ways.

This Onion Broccoli Quiche Recipe uses farm fresh eggs from our backyard flock of chickens. Sweet cream from a Jersey cow, fresh locally grown broccoli, sweet onion, and just a hint of cayenne pepper for spice.

It’s unbelievably creamy and rich; the perfect accompaniment to fresh garden salad or fresh seasonal fruit. Try it with our Kale Lemon Salad for flavors that explode in your mouth.
