Easy 6-Ingredient Broccoli Cheese Casserole Pie Recipe Is a Slice of Heaven by Elisa Schmitz


Easy 6-Ingredient Broccoli Cheese Casserole Pie Recipe Is a Slice of Heaven

I am inspired by recipes on 30Seconds all the time. For example, I wanted to make this easy, creamy zucchini pie recipe, but I didn’t have any zucchini. What I did have was a beautiful bunch of broccoli, so that zucchini pie turned into this easy, six-ingredient broccoli cheese casserole pie recipe. And it’s a slice of broccoli cheese heaven!

This cheesy broccoli pie recipe is oven-ready in less than 10 minutes and uses a ready-made pie crust right out of the freezer. Here is your short and simple shopping list for this vegetarian dinner recipe: fresh broccoli, heavy cream or half and half, eggs, cheddar and Parmesan cheeses, and a ready-made pie crust.

The ingredients are mixed together and poured into the unbaked pie crust. You bake it until it's golden on the outside, and solid but creamy on the inside. You can serve this broccoli casserole recipe as a vegetable side dish or a vegetarian main course. Similar to quiche (but better), it also works as a wonderful brunch, light lunch or dinner with your favorite protein.

If you like this broccoli pie recipe, try my cheesy cauliflower casserole pie recipe. It's so good, it'll leave you speechless!

nwerner
can the broccoli pie be frozen
Elisa Schmitz
Great question, nwerner . I have not tried to freeze it but I believe it would be fine if frozen after baking. After defrosting, I’d reheat it in the oven instead of the microwave, so it doesn’t get soggy. Let us know how it turns out for you, thanks!
nwerner
thank you. will let you know.
Betsy Burdett
You can make it crustless, just spray your pan with oil!
Elisa Schmitz
Hi Betsy Burdett ! I personally love the crust, but this is a great suggestion for those who want a crustless version, thank you!
