Broccoli & Bacon Quiche

1/2 cup fresh broccoli florets
1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1-2 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
2 eggs
1/2 cup half and half cream
pinch of garlic powder
pinch of lemon-pepper seasoning
salt to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using 5" pie plates sprayed with non-stick spray, place half of the broccoli, cheese and bacon into each. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, garlic powder, pepper and salt. Pour over broccoli. Bake uncovered 15-20 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Serves 2.

I've had several people ask that I post some recipes that feed one or two and this is a great one. Now of course, if you double the recipe you can easily make 4 individual quiches or use a full size pie pan. This quiche is different due to it not having a crust. If you want yours with a crust, simply add the ingredients listed above in order and increase the cooking time to 30-35 minutes. I've found that mine comes out better if I bake the crust for about 10 minutes before adding the ingredients. If you don't want to cook up the bacon, use the pre-cooked or you can even use real bacon bits. I also like to add a little sautéed onions and/or green peppers to mine.
