Easy Brussels Sprouts and Cheddar Cheese Quiche Recipe

{As seen on Dr. Oz} Quiche. It’s what for breakfast, lunch, or even dinner. It’s like the gift that keeps on giving for busy people like us. Make it once and enjoy the leftovers for whichever type of meal you prefer later. Not to mention the combinations are endless. I recently whipped up a delicious quiche that I’m sharing here for a Brussels Sprouts and Cheddar Cheese Quiche recipe. The brussels sprouts added a nice, sweet taste to the overall flavor. Yum!

Though it’s one of few things I think re-heats okay in the microwave, I think the best way to re-heat quiche is in the oven. I like to cut a slice up and bake it until it’s heated through for that fresh-baked taste.

The next step is to figure out what you want to serve the quiche with. I like my quiche with toast and coffee for breakfast and with a salad for dinner. All the sides are simple, making this overall meal experience tasty and easy.

Brussels sprouts are easy to shred (check out my recipe for easy sautéed brussels sprouts), but if you’re extra short on time, try the pre-saved ones available at Trader Joe’s. You’ll get enough to eat as a side vegetable for a different meal and the leftovers will already be cool to save you even more time.

I recently found these frozen pie crusts at my local health food store. They come in a variety of flavors, including spelt and gluten-free. My favorite is the Organic Whole Wheat 9″ Pie Shell by Wholly Wholesome.

Using a pre-made pie crust isn’t totally clean eating, but this is a good option if you want to eat clean while taking a little help from the store. Since it’s sold at health food stores, its quality meets pretty high levels.

Easy Brussels Sprouts and Cheddar Cheese Quiche Recipe

Easy Brussels Sprouts and Cheddar Cheese Quiche Recipe is super simple to make. Enjoy it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. This is a great use for eggs that are about to expire or if you need to do meal prep for the week and need easy eats. Serve with toast, a salad, and/or fresh fruit to complete the meal.


  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon oil (I used olive oil)
  • 1 cup shaved brussels sprouts
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 frozen pie crust (see photos for the clean eats version I found at my local health food store)


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Heat a large pan over medium heat. When it’s ready, add the butter, oil, and brussels sprouts and cook, stirring frequently, for 2-3 minutes, until the brussels sprouts have softened nicely. Set aside to cool. Wait until the brussels sprouts have cooled before proceeding so they don’t cook the eggs when you add them in the next steps.
  3. In a large bowl, combine eggs and milk and whisk till evenly combined.
  4. Stir in brussels sprouts, cheddar cheese, garlic salt, and black pepper.
  5. Pour egg mixture into frozen pie crust and bake for 45-55 minutes, until the center is set.


NOTE: This recipe would be a great use for leftover cooked brussels sprouts (click here for a recipe for sautéed brussels sprouts). Simply skip the brussels sprouts cooking step and if yours aren’t already shaved, chop them pretty small.

NOTE: Keep a frozen crust in the freezer for convenience.

Cooking tip: If when you check the quiche to see if it’s done the center is sunken, then you need to cook longer. The center should be puffed up a bit.

      • I made mine with brussel sprouts 4 eggs onions Swiss cheese and sausage a cup of milk and a half a stick of melted butter in an air fryer on 350 for 55 minutes in a pie shell once I start eating it I can’t quit

  1. I’m not crazy about scrambled eggs all by themselves, so this is a great alternative. ‘Good, fluffy, moist consistency! The cooking tip was well appreciated; I would have pulled it out too soon. Thanks for that!
    I can see you put a lot of heart into your pictures; they are beautiful 🙂
    Even though my son said it was “okay,” he ate the whole piece I cut for him –rather quickly! (I think I softened the B sprouts more than you, ’cause I had no trouble adding 1½ cups.) I enjoyed this simple, easy, light meal, & it definitely is worthy of my recipe book! THANK YOU!!

    • Hi GinGin! Thanks for the positive feedback about my recipe and photos. I do love doing food photography. It makes me so happy! Glad to hear your son enjoyed the quiche, too…and that the cooking tip was helpful. Thanks again for stopping by! 🙂

  2. It was good, I did’t want to eat pie crust, so I made a pizza crust out of chicken and used that as a pie crust. Delicious. Loved the shedded Brussels sprouts, I did that in my food processor.

  3. AMAZING! Best quiche I’ve ever made. I added half an onion while I was cooking the Brussel sprouts. I had to stop myself from getting a third piece!
