If you want to give this a fancy name, call it a crustless quiche. For a vegetarian version, simply omit the Canadian bacon.

ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons plain dry breadcrumbs
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups 1-percent milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce, such as Tabasco
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups cubed whole-wheat country bread (about 2 slices, crusts removed)
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 slices Canadian bacon, diced (about 2 1/2 ounces)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 cup grated Monterey Jack or part-skim mouncezarella cheese (4 ounces)

directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9-inch deep-dish pie pan (6-cup capacity) with cooking spray. Add the breadcrumbs, tilting to coat the bottom and sides.

Whisk the eggs, milk, hot sauce, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add the bread and stir to coat. Set aside in the refrigerator.

Steam the broccoli until just tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Refresh under cold water and drain well. Chop coarsely.

Heat the oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bacon and onion; cook, stirring often, until softened and light golden, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the onion mixture and broccoli to the egg mixture; stir in the cheese. Pour into the prepared pan, spreading evenly.

Bake the pie until light golden and set, 45 to 50 minutes. Let cool slightly, cut into wedges and serve.
