butter 1 package (10 oz.) frozen broccoli florets (can use fresh broccoli as well)
1/2 cup half-and-half
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
6 large eggs
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter four 8oz. ramekins (or a 9 inch pie dish); set aside.
Steam broccoli (I do this in the microwave for 1 minute), drain well; transfer to cutting board and coarsely chop.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, half-and-half, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and nutmeg. Stir in broccoli and cheddar cheese.
Place ramekins on baking sheet. Ladle broccoli mixture into ramekins, dividing evenly. Bake until golden brown, 35-40 minutes.
