Broccoli Cheddar Quiche

Normally I am all about the healthiest options and I don’t tend to make a ton of fattening food, but this quiche is just full of butter and cheese and all the most amazing flavor! Definitely a special occasion food, I tend to only make it a few times a year, like Mother’s Day brunch or something like that. The secret to making it light and fluffy is the baking soda. Start with a ready-made all natural pie crust (like Trader Joe’s brand) and you are halfway done from the start.
