Broccoli Quiche Lorraine

from The Moms’ Guide to Meal Makeovers

Serves 4

2 cups fresh broccoli
2 Tablespoons dried whole wheat bread crumbs
2 ounces lean ham, diced
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
5 large eggs
1 cup 2% milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
pinch of pepper
1/4 cup grated Parmesan

Steam the broccoli until tender, about 5 minutes.  Chop to desired size (I suggest smallish) and set aside.  Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.  Butter the bottom and sides of a 9″ pie pan and sprinkle with the bread crumbs.  Arrange the broccoli, ham and cheddar cheese in the bottom of the pie pan.  Whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, thyme and pepper in a medium bowl.  Pour over the broccoli and top with the Parmesan.  Bake uncovered until golden brown, 35-40 minutes.

Poached Eggs (Alton Brown method)

In a saucepan with 2″ straight sides, heat 1.5″ water and 1 Tablespoon vinegar until simmering.  Break an egg into a small dish and pour it carefully into the water.  Repeat as needed.  Cover the pan, turn off the heat and let it sit, undisturbed for 4 minutes for a slightly runny yolk, 5 minutes for a firm yolk.  Remove with a slotted spoon, blot with a towel, and serve.
