Broccoli-Cheese QuichePosted: October 13, 2010
From December 18, 2005: This is one of my favorite quiche recipes. It’s very easy to make, especially when using a pre-made pie crust. Pay attention when buying pre-made pie crusts, most contain lard (yuck!). I bought Mrs. Smith’s brand and was happy with it. I bake the pre-made pie crust a few minutes before adding the egg mixture, but you don’t have to do that. To lighten the quiche a bit, I use 3/4 c. cream and 3/4 c. milk (you could use half and half instead of cream and milk). This quiche is perfect for brunches and parties. although I like mine warm, it tastes great at room temperature as well.
Broccoli – Cheese Quiche
pastry for 10-inch single pie crust
1-1/2 cups chopped broccoli
1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups cream
1/4 teaspoon salt

Arrange broccoli and cheese in pastry-lined pan. Beat together eggs, cream, and spices in bowl. Pour the custard mixture over cheese and broccoli. Place in preheated oven at 375 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until top is golden brown and knife inserted 1 inch from edge comes out clean.
