    Don’t you love it when recipes turn out so better than you expect? I had high hopes for tonight’s dinner and it definitely surpassed them. It was an egg-cellent meal! ;-)

    Tortilla-Crusted Feta-and-Broccoli Quiche

    Recipe inspired by Rachel Ray’s Tortilla-Crusted Goat Cheese-and-Asparagus Quiche

    INGREDIENTS:

    • Four 7-inch whole wheat tortillas
    • 1 cup broccoli florets
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
    • 4 pieces of cooked bacon, crumbled
    • 4 ounces sliced mushrooms (about 1 1/2 cups)
    • 1/2 cup feta crumbles
    • 3 eggs
    • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
    • Salt and pepper

    DIRECTIONS:

    Preheat the oven to 375* F. In a greased 9-inch pie plate, overlap the tortillas to make a crust; place on a rimmed baking sheet. (I used tortillas from Maria and Ricardo’s Tortilla Factory.)

    Meanwhile, steam broccoli until crisp-tender, about 1 minute in the microwave. In a skillet, add the olive oil and heat over medium-high heat. Add the onion and mushrooms, season with salt and pepper and cook until the mushrooms are golden, about 3 minutes. Stir in the broccoli; season with salt and pepper.

    Spread evenly in the tortilla crust, then add bacon and crumble the feta on top.

    In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and yogurt and season with salt and pepper; pour into the tortilla crust.

    Bake on the baking sheet until just set in the center and lightly golden, about 30 minutes. Let rest for about 10 minutes before serving.

    Enjoy the night, folks!

    What is the calorie content and serving size? Before making a recipe I like to know that information.

    I do like to make quiche or put a mix like this in muffin tins and back so there is no crust used.

    Will give this a try

    Just made this last night. Since I’m preggo I substitued mozzarella and parmesan for the feta and spinch for the broccoli (broccoli is grossing me out at the moment). It was great! Thanks for sharing. I loved that it was easy, not time consuming and yummy!

    This sounds really quick and tasty.
    And I just happen to have a packet of tortilla wraps in the cupboard – so dinner tomorrow…. I’ll need to use frozen broccoli.

    Wow! This looks amazing! I LOVE quiche, and this looks like a quick and simple recipe for the mornings. Actually, I had quiche for lunch today and it was fabulous as usual. I love having quiche for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, but this recipe looks perfect for when you want a smaller quiche, and quick preparation. The quiche I make takes about 25-30 minutes, but I make a large pan and use a lot more veggies. I’m working on posting the recipe, so I’ll let you know when it’s up. :)

    Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe! God bless you always!
