CarbsPerServing:30 total recipe

Effort:Easy

Ingredients:

3 cups chopped broccoli — cooked, drained, cooling

1/2 cup chopped onion — favorite color

3 tablespoons butter — (or less)

1 1/2 tablespoons soy flour

3/4 teaspoon salt pepper and nutmeg to taste (pinch)

3 eggs

1/2 cup heavy cream with enough water to equal 2/3 cup liquid

4 slices cooked bacon — crumbled or cut in small pieces

2 ounces shredded swiss cheese

How to Prepare:

9″ pie plate sprayed with non-stick spray

375 degrees, 25 minutes

  1. Set aside cooked broccoli
  2. Saute onions gently in butter, when tender add soy flour and cook a couple more minutes.
  3. Whisk together eggs, cream & water. Blend in salt and spices.
  4. Combine egg mix, prepared vegetables and cheese.
  5. Pour into prepared pie plate.
  6. Bake until puffed and browned.

Personal notes: Next time I will increase the 2 oz cheese to 4 oz because I want the swiss flavor more pronounced. Also I think this would make a great appetizer if baked in a 7 x 11″ chilled and cut into small squares, served cold or reheated. Very pretty if topped with small strips of pimento or red bell pepper laced through a slice of black olive?
