Quiche/Casserole recipe with lots of veggies?

I'm having a hard time getting veggies into my almost 2 year old. He prefers just meats and bread-type foods I can up up into cubes so I'm trying to think of a way I can bake veggies into his meals. Does anyone have a recipe for a quiche-like casserole that I can bake with veggies in it and can cut up into whole bite site sqaures? Does that make sense?

  • Here's one my kids LOVE, and it's loaded with vitamin A and had plenty of protein:



    1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
    * 1 (16 ounce) container cottage cheese
    * 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
    * 1/2 cup bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled (we prefer ham over bacon)
    * 1/2 cup green onion, sliced
    * 1 (4 ounce) can sliced mushrooms, drained
    * 4 eggs, well beaten
    * 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
    * sliced black olives (optional)

    Combine spinach, cottage cheese, mozzarella, bacon or ham, green onions, mushrooms, and eggs in a large bowl. Mix well. Pour into a greased 9-inch pie dish. Sprinkle the parmesan cheese evenly over the spinach mixture. Sprinkle with the olive slices.(optional). Bake at 350 F degrees for 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in th

  • Not quiche-y, but sooo yummy - I've seen the pickiest veggie haters go back for seconds of this 4 Thanksgivings in a row.

    2lbs frozen california veggie mix (carrots, broccoli, cauliflower)
    1 can cream of mushroom soup
    1 jar cheezwhiz (or healthier equivalent)
    french fried onions, optional

    Mix veggies, soup, cheezwhiz, pour into oven-safe casserole dish. Cover with foil, bake at 350 for 2 hours. Uncover, top with onions if using, and return to oven til onions are golden & crunchy.
    I double or triple the veggies (use an extra can of soup when tripled, no extra cheez), and I also chop up a whole fresh onion and mix in at the beginning, as well as some black pepper. I personally don't like all the extra sauce, which is why I use extra veggies but no extra cheez.

    Yeah not the healthiest "cheez" wise, but so good!
