I absolutely love making broccoli mushroom quiche – it’s a delicious and versatile dish that’s perfect for breakfast, brunch, or even a light dinner. The combination of tender broccoli, flavorful mushrooms, and creamy egg custard baked in a flaky crust is simply irresistible. Whether you’re a vegetarian looking for a satisfying meal or just a food lover in search of a new recipe to try, broccoli mushroom quiche is sure to be a hit.


  • 1 9-inch pie crust (store-bought or homemade)
  • 1 cup broccoli florets, blanched and chopped
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese (Gruyere, Swiss, or cheddar work well)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk (whole milk or half-and-half for a richer quiche)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Pinch of nutmeg (optional, but adds a lovely flavor)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. If using a store-bought pie crust, follow the package instructions for pre-baking. If making a homemade crust, blind bake it for about 15 minutes, then set aside to cool.
  3. In a skillet, sauté the chopped onion until translucent. Add the mushrooms and cook until they release their moisture and start to brown. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
  5. Spread the broccoli, mushroom, and onion mixture onto the pre-baked pie crust. Sprinkle the shredded cheese over the vegetables.
  6. Pour the egg and milk mixture over the vegetables and cheese in the pie crust.
  7. Bake the quiche for 35-40 minutes, or until the center is set and the top is golden brown.
  8. Allow the quiche to cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.

This broccoli mushroom quiche is best served warm, but it also makes for a delicious cold leftover the next day. It’s wonderful for a weekend brunch with a simple side salad, or as part of a light dinner with a glass of white wine. The versatility of this dish makes it a staple in my cooking repertoire, and I’m excited to share it with you.
