I read somewhere that there is some sort of hatred of quiche amongst some men. I don't get this. Do they hate pie? Eggs? Veggies? Cheese? So why can't they all hang out together and be delicious?
Well I for one LOVE quiche because it is super easy to make, you can switch out the ingredients and basically make any kind you want. Most frozen pie crusts come in a pack of 2, so I tend to make two different kinds.

1 frozen pie crust, thawed
2 tbsp oil
1/2 cup milk
1/4 tsp dried rosemary
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 medium onion, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
1 large head of broccoli, chopped
2 tbsp water
8 oz. sharp cheddar cheese, grated
Preheat oven to 375.
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium high heat. Add onion and cook until they start to brown.
Add 2 tbsp water, cover and cook until bright green, a few minutes.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, beat eggs with spices.
Add in milk.
Poke holes in the crust with a fork. Add one layer of cheese.
Cover with broccoli. Add peppers.
Sprinkle more cheese. Pour egg mixture over the top. Stir slightly so egg falls between the other ingredients and sinks to the bottom. Top with remaining cheese and bake for 25-30 minutes, until firm.
Quiche is done when a fork inserted in the center comes out clean.
