Happy Pi Day: Broccoli quiche

Here's a really simple, basic, but delicious recipe for broccoli quiche.  Yeah, I know...Martha Stewart and Paula Dean make it better, and with way more calories.  But sometimes you just want a nice simple, basic meal.  Sometimes.

No Extra Fuss Broccoli Quiche

Dough for a single pie crust (leave out the sugar)

1-1/2 to 2 c chopped fresh broccoli
1/2 onion, chopped
Olive oil
4 eggs
2 c milk
Salt and pepper
1 t dried mustard
1/4 c grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 c grated Swiss cheese

Make the pie crust and roll it out to fit a deep pie pan.

Microwave or steam the broccoli until just tender.  In a skillet, saute the onion and broccoli.  In a large glass measuring cup, mix the eggs, milk, and spices.  Arrange the vegetable mix and the cheese in the pie pan and pour in the egg mixture.  Bake for 15 minutes at 450.  Lower oven temperature to 350 and bake for about 15 to 20 minutes more, until a knife comes out clean.
