Broccoli Pie

This addicting pie was great for dinner and it was even better for breakfast the next day.   It was quick to throw together and then you can get in some exercise while it's baking.  You could change this up in many ways, using different cheeses or spices or seasonings.  You could also portion out the slices and freeze for quick dinners or breakfasts.

You could use either frozen broccoli or regular broccoli, just put in microwavable bowl with a little water, cover and cook until steamed through.

And for pete's sake - DON'T FORGET TO GREASE THE PLATE...don't be like me....

Broccoli Pie
makes 6-8 servings

3 cups/10 ounces chopped broccoli, cooked and well drained
1 onion, chopped
8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
6 eggs
1 cup half and half
salt and pepper

Use oil or butter to coat a large glass pie plate.

Put the broccoli, onion and cheese in the bottom of the plate.

Combine the eggs, half and half and salt and pepper in a separate bowl and pour evenly over the broccoli mixture.

Bake at 350 for 35 minutes, until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.
