One of the requests I received for new year posts was for easy healthy family recipes. I saw someone post this on Facebook the other day and decided to try it. This crustless quiche was amazing. I served it with some chicken soup. I really like the skinnytaste site they have some really good lite recipes. Stay tuned for more…Bon Appetit!!!

3 cups broccoli florets (I used frozen but just make sure to strain all the excess water)
1/8 tsp Black pepper, ground
3/4 tsp Kosher salt
1 pinch Nutmeg
2/3 cup 2% milk
1 cup Cheddar cheese, grated
1/4 cup Half & half cream (I use fat free)
Preheat your oven to 350degrees.
Spray a pie dish with oil.
Steam the chopped broccoli florets in the microwave with 1 tablespoon water until tender, crisp and green but not mushy, about 2 1/2 to 3 minutes.
Evenly spread the broccoli in the dish and top it evenly with the grated cheddar cheese.
Make the custard mixture by whisking together the milk, half and half, eggs, salt, black pepper, and the nutmeg. Pour the custard into the dish and bake 35 to 40 minutes, until the center is set.
