    This is an excellent recipe for any meal but we love it for breakfast. The broccoli-parsley combination gives it the freshest taste. Also, it is good hot or cold. You can also prepare it without crust; to cut out those calories. It is so rich, you won’t miss it and it still holds its shape.

    This is a really firm, cheesy quiche for which I’ve received compliments every time I bake it. I use local eggs, and substitute half milk and half light cream or half-and-half for all milk. I also use freshly grated romano or parmesan. It all makes a difference in the final result.
