12 Sweets of Christmas - Broccoli Pie

While it all has been fun, this is the last week for the “12 Sweets of Christmas”. Today is Christmas eve and many have a million things going on with family and friends, so if you are reading this today thank you for including us in your Christmas plans. We wish you the best during this holiday season and in the year to come.

We love the spirit of Christmas and hope that you all join us in this great event. Having fun and sharing the best ideas is our way of saying Happy Holidays!!.

I know that most of us bake or buy sweet pies during this time of the year, this is why We actually went on a limb here and instead of baking and featuring a sweet pie we decided to present to you a savory one. Hope that you give it a try and love it as much as we do.

Delicious Broccoli Pie
12 Sweets of Christmas - Broccoli Pie
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • 1/2 green bell pepper
  • 1/2 red bell pepper (Optional)
  • 1/2 orange bell pepper (Optional)
  • 1/4 Cup chopped green onion, chopped
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups 1% milk
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper (Optional)
  • 5 slices bacon
  • 2 tbsp breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 3/4 Cup cubed cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 Cup shredded cheese for topping
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 C)
  2. Put broccoli to steam for about 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile butter a 9 to 10 inch pie pan and add bread crumbs, pressing them down and to the sides to create the base. Set aside
  4. Remove broccoli from pot and place in some cold water until manageable with your hands. Cut florets to a maximum of 1/2” pieces.
  5. Place a skillet over medium to high heat with some EVOO, add all peppers, bacon, green onions, cook until peppers are soft and bacon seems cooked, reduce heat if needed and stir to avoid bacon sticking
  6. In a separate bowl combine milk, eggs, salt, pepper, and cubed bread
  7. Now combine broccoli with bacon mixture and milk mixture. Add cubed cheese.
  8. Pour all of it in the previously buttered pie pan, top with shredded cheese and place in the preheated oven for about 40 minutes.
  9. Let cool down a bit before cutting and serving.
Merry Christmas!!
