I was craving something unique last weekend and found this Roasted Broccolini, Bacon, and Caramelized Shallot Quiche Recipe from How Sweet Eats and had to give it a shot.  I made some edits based on what I already had at home and it came out great!  I’ll always be roasting my broccoli before putting it in quiche from now on.  I used regular broccoli instead of broccolini, precooked ham steaks instead of bacon, cheddar instead of gruyere, and a premade pie crust because aint nobody got time for that.  I also typically add some red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper to my quiches.  The last note from the original recipe is that it says to caramelize the shallots for 25 minutes over low heat–I always caramelize on medium-high heat for 10 minutes or less, it’s more efficient.  Overall this came out amazing and I enjoyed delicious leftovers for days.  Must try!
