A flaky, tasty crust is the key for any top quiche recipe.
For an easy, delicious homemade pastry crust try this Shortcrust Pastry recipe. A store-bought Shortcrust Pastry may be also used.
I used a mature Cheddar for this broccoli quiche, but other popular choices include Swiss cheese or Gruyere cheese.
Prep.time :15 mins
Cook time: 40 mins
Total time: 55 mins
1 ( 375g) Ready-rolled Shortcrust Pastry
1 medium head of broccoli, cut into bite-size florets
150g mature Cheddar cheese, grated or shredded
150g Brie cheese, sliced
6 eggs, free-range
125ml double cream (heavy cream, whipping cream)
Salt and pepper to season
1. Preheat the oven to 175°C (350)°F.
2. In a medium bowl with 2 cups water, add the broccoli, cover, and bring to a boil. Cook the broccoli until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Drain and transfer broccoli to a bowl. Set aside.
3. In an another bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, double cream (heavy/whipping cream), salt and pepper. Set aside.
4. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface and use it to line a 23 cm (9-inch) flan tin. Press the dough into the pan so it fits tightly. Press the edges into the sides of the pan.
5. Add the grated Cheddar cheese at the bottom of the pie, then add Brie cheese. Spread broccoli over the cheese. Pour egg mixture over the top.
6. Bake until golden-brown, about 40 to 45 minutes. Cool slightly before serving.
