I am in love with cream cheese and want to have it with all my food. Yes, certainly ma’am. A dollop of cream cheese can do wonders to any meal like omelets, soups or roasted veg – but with some it might not work out that well at all.
This recipe of Broccoli and Cream Cheese Quiche however, is loaded with delicious full fat cream cheese, broccoli, cheddar, eggs and chives. Served with crispy bacon bits, it sure gets a “banting essential” rating from me.
You can enjoy it for breakfast, hey; no one ever said you are not allowed veggies at breakfast, or for a delicious comforting lunch served with a fresh side salad. Or, alternatively, if your husband does not think broccoli to be served in the dustbin, it could work out as a fine, easy and fuss free dinner idea.
Crust or no crust, Broccoli and Cream Cheese Quiches is a very versatile recipe; you can add your own mix of sautéed vegetables here and spice it up with other fresh herbs and spices. Enjoy!
