Prep Time: 10 min 

Cook Time: 30 min 

Serves

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp butter or olive oil for the pan
  • 1 (16 oz) package of frozen, chopped broccoli (or 1 cup fresh chopped)
  • 8 large eggs
  • ½ cup full-fat greek yogurt
  • ½ tsp fine salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder 
  • ¼ cup chopped scallions/green onions (optional but recommended)
  • 1 cup (4 oz) sharp cheddar cheese 

Directions: 

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 9 inch pie dish. 
  2. To thaw frozen broccoli: Place broccoli in a large microwave safe bowl. Add ¼ cup water. Cover and microwave on high for 6 minutes, stirring after the first 3 min, drain well. 
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, Greek yogurt, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Stir in the broccoli, green onions, and cheese.
