Breakfast Quiche

I’m not even going to try to say this is a low calorie breakfast, it’s just hearty and delicious. You won’t sneak into the pantry for a few snacks after you’ve had this. It’s great for brunch, and great to make when you have a group of people coming over for breakfast.

Here’s what you’ll need, with the complete freedom to add any vegetables you like:

6 eggs

1/2 cup heavy cream

1 cup shredded cheese (save some to sprinkle on top)

salt and black pepper to taste

1/2 tsp chilli flakes

1/2 onion, thinly sliced

1 cup broccoli, chopped

1 red bell pepper, finely chopped

1 green onion, finely chopped

olive oil for sautéing

 

Preheat your oven to 400 F.

In a mixing bowl whisk together the eggs, cream, cheeses and salt and black pepper.

In a frying pan sautéed the onions in a little olive oil till they are translucent and slightly golden brown. Take them out onto a plate, add a little more olive oil and add the red bell peppers, and sautéed for a few minutes and remove to the plate. You can either sauté the broccoli or just blanch it in some hot water. Once these veggies are cooled add them to the egg mixture and whisk. Add the chopped green onion as well.

Pour into a greased baking dish or quiche tin. Spread out evenly, and top with a little more cheese. Bake at 400 for about 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the centre is set.

That’s all there is to it. Top it with sour cream and hot sauce, serve with whichever carb you desire!
