What do you do when the groundhog nibbles on your beautiful broccoli?
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 large scallions
2 cups broccoli florets, cut into 1-inch pieces
4 large eggs
1 cup milk
1/3 – ½ cup cheese (I like to use a mix of cheddar and parmesan)
Sea salt to taste
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
Dash of oregano
Dash of rosemary
Dash of smoked paprika
Dash of your favorite hot sauce
1/8 - 1/4 cup of flour
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add
scallions and cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about three minutes.
Add broccoli and cook about five minutes or until just tender. Feel free to
add any other vegetables you have on hand. Now, you can either transfer
the vegetables to an oiled baking pan, or leave the vegetables in your cast-
iron skillet and bake the quiche in the skillet
In a large bowl, beat together
eggs, milk, cheese, hot sauce, and seasonings. Whisk in flour. Pour egg
mixture evenly over vegetables. Sprinkle with paprika and bake until set,
about 35 minutes. Cool quiche 10 minutes before serving. Voila!
