I'm back to doing the Maximized Living Advanced Plan- basically no fruits, sugar, alcohol, grains, roots, beans. I modified a few recipes into this amazing broccoli cheddar frittata and I had to share the recipe! I used a large, deep cast iron skillet. If you have a smaller one, I've included a modified amount of ingredients at the bottom.
Broccoli Cheddar Crustless Quiche
one steam-in-bag pack of broccoli
1/2 onion, sliced or diced
2-3 T of butter
1 c cheddar cheese, shredded
1 1/2 c cream or half and half
1/2 c real parmesan, shredded or shaved
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350
Steam the broccoli in the microwave
While the broccoli is cooking, saute the sliced or diced onion in the butter in a cast iron skillet on medium heat.
When the onion is nicely caramalized, break up the broccoli and cover the bottom of the pan.
Top with the cheddar cheese.
In a bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, parmesan and salt and pepper.
Pour the egg mixture over the broccoli and cheese.
Put the cast iron skillet directly in the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
This reheated very nicely for breakfast in the morning. If you are doing a paleo diet, you could leave out the cheese and substitute plain almond milk for the cream.
*If you are using a smaller skillet, don't use all of the broccoli, only use 5 eggs, 1c cream and 1/4 c parmesan.
*The next week, I made one using leeks instead of the broccoli. It was lovely! A little sauteed pancetta would have made it even better
