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 andย 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!

  1. Oh my gosh – what a great idea! I love the idea of using tortillas as a pie crust – a great recipe for a weeknight “quiche”

    Great post! Thank you!

  2. I love this idea!!! And I totally sneak my own foods into the movies! Until they start selling healthier foods at the movie theatre, I’ll continue to smuggle in my own snacks! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Omg, I LOVE this recipe. My usual complaint with quiche is that I don’t just have frozen pastry shell lying around (nor do I want to make it from scratch) so I end up not making it. The tortilla is a much better crust and is probably healthier, too. Great recipe!

  4. I am another one who never thought of using tortillas as a crust. Brilliant! I am definitely going to save this recipe to try soon. Small tortillas in ramekins would make cute little individual quiches. Do you think corn tortillas would work as well?

  5. You will LOVE Inception, it’s amazing!!

    Thanks for the camera strap link. How cute is that!! The lens cap holder is SUCH a great idea, I never know where to put mine. I’ll be checking out that etsy page for sure. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I am another one who never thought of using tortillas as a crust. Brilliant! I am definitely going to save this recipe to try soon.

  7. That is such an awesome idea – I’m always too intimidated to make Quiche but this I feel I could do! Love recipes that could be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. I think I need to step on this Inception bandwagon. Everyone is loooving it! This dinner looks great too! Easy & healthy, my kind of thing!

  9. Love the idea of using the tortillas as the crust-I will be incorporating this technique into my next quiche dish. Thank you!

  10. That looks delicious!!! I’m so hungry right now and about to go and find some lunch. This is a great idea for a brunch or something. ๐Ÿ˜€ Yummmy!

  11. Oh my! I love the idea of layering wraps for a crust! I have never made a quiche but now I know I want to using this recipe. Heard Inception is fabulous, what has Leo been in that isn’t good!?

  12. I can’t wait to try this! I love quiche – it’s heavenly – but the nutritional profile of traditional quiche is kind of awful. I can’t bring myself to make it with a clear conscience ๐Ÿ™‚ This is such a great and healthy alternative. Thank you for posting the recipe!

  13. I tried this recipe tonight and it was absolutely wonderful. The whole thing was really easy, especially the crust. I will happily pass this recipe along. Thanks for posting.
