With the Holidays quickly approaching, we need to be thinking about our menu including what we are going to do with all the leftovers. Do you serve ham and turkey? This Ham and Broccoli Quiche is a perfect way to use up that leftover ham.
You all know we love to serve breakfast for dinner. It’s not only a budget friendly meal, but it is one of the most satisfying meals. This Ham and Broccoli Quiche is a quick and easy to make meal that is perfect for around the holidays, it only takes minutes to throw all the ingredients together so you have more time to spend visiting with family and friends. And isn’t that what meal time should be about anyway?
Quiche sounds like suck a difficult recipe to make, doesn’t it? It’s not at all, it’s simply layering the ingredients into a pie shell, adding the eggs and milk on top and into the oven it goes.
Instead of using milk, this time I tried the Cashewmilk from Silk. We have tried the Coconutmilk in our Tropical Fruit Salad and also the Chocolate Almondmilk in our Thin Mint Creamer and liked both of them, so we were anxious to give the new Cashewmilk a try also. Now, we have to be honest, to drink it straight from the glass, it wasn’t our favorite, but in a recipe we could not tell the difference compared to regular milk. So why not just use regular milk you ask? The Cashewmilk has fewer calories, has 0 grams of saturated fat and cholesterol and 50% more calcium than dairy milk, just to name a few.
