Broccoli Quiche

I don’t eat very exciting things for breakfast during the week. My usual rotation is either cereal, a toasted English muffin with crunchy peanut butter, yogurt with granola or (if I’m feeling “fancy”) a smoothie. In other words, this quiche was not breakfast, it was dinner. Even though this only took about 40 minutes, my current weekeday-morning routine with a nonintensive breakfast takes 30 minutes from the moment my alarm goes off until I lock the door behind me. I rarely have any desire to wake up any earlier (6:30am normally, but today was special with a 2:15am alarm – yay grad school!).

My favorite part of this quiche is the crust, is that sad? Not that I don’t love the cheesy goodness complete with yummy broccoli and eggs, but the bites with most crust in them were the best! I found myself saving the crust edge for last so that my last bites could be the ones I remember. I actually do that with most things I eat – save the best parts for last. Does anyone else do this?

The good thing about this quiche, is that in my home it makes leftovers which means I can in fact have this on a weekday after all! If you are not a lover of leftovers, you do not make sense to me. I understand some things cannot be as good as they were the first time around (although I have discovered that reheating in a toaster oven does wonders), but many things make fantastic leftovers and are the reason I manage to have a packed lunch most days, or even a complete meal ready for dinner on a busy night.
