We love cheese and bacon, turkey bacon that is! You will find many recipes here that include those two ingredients. Getting the kids to eat broccoli is somewhat of a challenge, but including it with their favorite already stated ingredients, well, they are more apt to eat it.
Spinach is another story, for whatever reason my kids LOVE it. I will often make this quiche with spinach, but I just happened to run out the other day and tried it with the broccoli. They ate it without complaining so it was a win-win in my book!
Do you have kiddies that don’t like broccoli? This recipe for quiche is a super easy way to entice them into eating it.
I start off with the whole foods market whole wheat crust recipe. You can use whatever crust you like, but the nutrition info is for this crust recipe.
Have this for breakfast, lunch or dinner! This is easy to make ahead and it freezes fantastic! After it cools wrap it in aluminum foil. Thaw overnight and reheat at 350 degrees covered with aluminum so the crust doesn’t burn, about 30-45 minutes until its warmed through.
