Broccoli, Tomato & Cheese Quiche and Sweet Potato Hash

A few weeks ago, I decided I was in the mood for breakfast for dinner. My sister is an avid quiche maker and I’ve realized that quiche is not only easy to make and delicious to eat, but it is also a dish that reheats really well (and we all know how much I love leftovers!). I did a little research and came across this delicious looking crustless quiche from Cooking Light. Going crustless with quiche is a great way to cut down on calories, and I promise, you won’t miss the crust if you make your quiche tasty enough 😉

To accompany my quiche, I made a sweet potato “hash” recipe that I got from this blog. Super easy, but super tasty!

This meal absolutely hit the spot and was a great, balanced meal to have around for the week!

Broccoli & Tomato Crustless Quiche (from Cooking Light)

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp EVOO
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped,
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 5 cups broccoli florets
  • cooking spray
  • 1 1/4 cup skim milk
  • 1 cup shredded reduced- fat Swiss cheese (I used a blended cheese because that’s what I had)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard (I skipped this because I didn’t have any)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 4 large egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh Parmesan cheese
  • 6 (1-ounce) slices whole wheat bread, toasted (I skipped this all together. Wasn’t necessary!)

Mmmm. The quiche was absolutely delicious! Cheesy and veggie-filled and the sweet potato hash was a great substitution for the crust on the quiche. I think I caught myself “mmm”ing while I ate. Good thing I was alone because that would have been weird 😉

Questions for you: Do you like quiche? Have you ever made sweet potato hash? What’s your favorite “breakfast for dinner” meal?

    Looks yummy. I’ll try this one! Might have to serve with a couple slices of crispy bacon or some turkey sausage to satisfy the meat lovers in my family!!!

  2. Jean Brennan says:

    This sounds delicious–sweet potato is not a fav. here, but I will try it with regular potato and it should be the same.

    Hi Nick, I LOVE any kind of quiche–this one sounds delicious! Since we have an abundant crop of broccoli and tomatoes, it would be easy for us to do. Mom
