Ingredients: Prepare for culinary excellence with 1 cup of meticulously diced cooked ham, complemented by an equal measure of vibrant and steamed broccoli florets. The ensemble is enriched by 1 cup of perfectly shredded cheddar cheese, providing a luscious and creamy undertone to the quiche. Our recipe calls for 4 large eggs, 1 cup of milk, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper, and the optional, yet recommended, addition of 1/2 teaspoon of dried thyme and 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder.

Instructions: Begin by preheating your oven to 375°F (190°C) and elegantly grease a pie dish or quiche pan with a touch of cooking spray or butter. The eggs, milk, salt, pepper, thyme, and garlic powder should be whisked into a harmonious amalgamation, ensuring a flavorful and well-balanced base for the quiche. Arrange the diced ham, steamed broccoli florets, and shredded cheddar cheese in the greased dish, creating a visually appealing mosaic of ingredients. Pour the velvety egg mixture over the arrangement and delicately stir to achieve an even distribution. Allow the quiche to bake in the preheated oven for approximately 25-30 minutes, until it achieves a golden-brown hue and a perfectly set center.

Presentation: Upon removing this culinary masterpiece from the oven, let it cool for a few moments, allowing the aromas to permeate the air. Slice into portions, revealing layers of ham, broccoli, and cheese nestled within the golden embrace of the quiche. Each bite offers a symphony of flavors, a testament to the culinary artistry involved in creating this refined dish. Serve warm, and relish in the satisfaction of a professionally crafted, crustless quiche that transcends the ordinary.
