Chicken and Broccoli Quiche with Parmesan Topping

The idea for this came from a combination of other recipes and I tried it and loved it!  It came out really good.  I may make a video for it eventually but didn't have the time.  The topping idea came from Linda's Low Carb Menus and Recipes.  I love her site, and I've used this topping for several recipes.  It just makes a great low carb topping for a lot of things.  It really adds a lot.  I hope you'll try it and if you do and enjoy it leave me a note and let me know!

Chicken and Broccoli Quiche With Parmesan topping

Serving Size  : 6    

  2          cups  cooked chicken -- diced
  1          pound  frozen broccoli
  1          pound  frozen cauliflower
  2          tablespoons  onion flakes
  1          tablespoon  minced garlic
  4          large  eggs
  1          cup  shredded cheddar cheese -- (or smokey cheddar is really good)
  4          dashes  tabasco sauce
              salt and pepper -- to taste
  1         tablespoon  lemon juice
 1/2           cup  Light Mayonnaise, Great Value
 1/2           cup  sour cream
 1           teaspoon  garlic powder
 1/2      teaspoon  paprika
 1/2           cup  shredded cheddar cheese -- (or whatever you have)
 3/4           cup  parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a 9 or 10 inch pie plate or baking dish, spray with non-stick spray. 

Microwave frozen broccoli for 5 minutes.  Remove. Chop if you like it smaller pieces.  Place into medium mixing bowl.  Microwave cauliflower 5 minutes.  Process in food processor using the shredding blade so that it makes "rice". 

Pour into mixing bowl with the broccoli.  Add chicken, onion flakes, garlic, eggs, shredded cheese, tabasco sauce, salt and pepper, and lemon juice and mix all well.

Turn into prepared dish.

Mix all topping ingredients together and dollup on top of casserole and then spread over it evenly with a knife.

Bake for 1 hr. and let rest for 15 minutes before cutting.
