ROANOKE, Va. -

WDBJ7 Reporter Nadine Maeser is cooking up a special family dish that everyone can enjoy for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Quiche is an open-faced pastry that can be filled with almost anything.

You can make vegetable, meat, seafood and cheese quiche. It is often paired with a serving of fruit or a spoonful of sour cream.

Nadine showed us how simple it can be to make this delicious dish.

You can use any fillers (bacon, ham, sausage, broccoli, peppers, cheese, etc), but Nadine used three simple ingredients on Sunday for her quiche.

Ingredients:

2 cups frozen broccoli florets (defrosted) (do not defrost in microwave) room temperature for thawing is best

1/3 cup of chopped onion (optional)

1/3 cup chopped green bell peppers (1 pepper works best)

1/3 cup chopped red pepper (1 pepper works best)

1/2 cup Original Bisquick Mix (you can substitute lower calorie if you’d like)

1 cup 2% milk

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

2 eggs

___________________________________________________________________

1.  Heat oven to 400 degrees F.  Grease a quiche plate.  Add defrosted broccoli, onion, chopped red and green pepper, and shredded cheese in the bottom of the quiche plate.

2.  In a large bowl, stir remaining ingredients under well blended.  Pour into quiche plate over the existing above vegetables and cheese. 

NOTE: (*I like to cut a tomato and put the slices on the top while baking it - looks very yummy and the tomatoes give a nice flavor to the quiche!)

3.  Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown and knife inserted in it comes out clean.  Cool 5 minutes.

Can be served with sour cream on the side or fresh fruit!

Enjoy!
