Weekends are the best times to make the most awesome breakfasts!

Nothing like an awesome feast to start the day. Don’t forget to brew a fresh cup of coffee. This Caramelized Onion Ham Broccoli Quiche is absolutely one of our favorite breakfasts. Of course you have to love onions because they are the star here. The caramelized onions do take a little bit of time but feel free to do them the night before and store in the fridge. That way you will have a head start on your Sunday morning treat.
This gorgeous Caramelized Onion Ham Broccoli Quiche combines sweet caramelized onions, honey ham, fresh broccoli, Gouda, Swiss and Parmesan cheeses into a memorable meal. Leftovers are just as tasty and can be reheated in the microwave for about 45 seconds at 50% power. They are perfect for a holiday party, special luncheon or birthday brunch.
Please remember to put the quiche on a cookie sheet. This deep dish quiche is filled to the brim with all kinds of goodness so it aids in getting the quiche in and out of the oven and catches any drips so your oven stays nice and clean.

I followed the recipe and the filling was too much for the crust.. Will try using less broccoli and onions next time.
It was delicious
I cannot wait to try your version. I use swiss cheese, ham, and broccoli. Next time I will try it with onions. My mom told me that my Italian grandmother made something like this and called it meat pie. I never had it but I am sure it was delicious.
Thanks so much Maddy! That is very sweet of you! Thanks for sharing the story about your Grandmother.
Can you make without pie crust so it could be completely Leto?
Yes you most certainly but grease the pie plate well.
A friend who was going out of town gave me a dozen eggs so I went looking for a ham and broccoli quiche and came across this recipe. It was delicious! The caramelized onions give it such good flavor. I used cheddar because that was what I had, but I will definitely try it with the swiss and Gouda next time. My two boys ate it up and my husband, who loves quiche, said it was very good. This is a keeper for sure!
Thanks so much Sarah. I am so glad that you and your family liked it. You made my evening!!
If I make this the day before should I heat at all begore serving ?
Yes bring to room temperature, cover quiche with aluminum foil and bake in an oven heated to 325 degrees for about 10-15 minutes.
I use less eggs, more cream … will sometimes add 1/2 can of green chiles to the broccoli …. yum
Thanks for the heads up!!
