Broccoli and Cheddar Quiche is a hearty and flavorsome dish that appeals to both vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. Here's a simple recipe, complete with tips and tricks to help you make this delicious quiche at home.



=====


  • Dish name: Broccoli and Cheddar Quiche

  • Cuisine: French-inspired

  • Preparation time: 15 minutes, plus chilling

  • Cooking time: 35-40 minutes

  • Yield: Serves 6


Ingredients:


  • 1 pie pastry crust (9-inch)

  • 2 cups broccoli florets, cut into small pieces

  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated

  • 4 large eggs

  • 1 cup whole milk or cream

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • Optional: A pinch of paprika or mustard powder for extra flavor


Instructions:


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

  2. Roll out the pastry dough and fit it into a 9-inch pie plate. Prick the bottom with a fork, then chill in the refrigerator.

  3. Steam the broccoli florets until just tender, then chop into small pieces if necessary.

  4. Sprinkle the cheese into the bottom of the chilled crust, then top with the broccoli.

  5. Beat the eggs in a bowl, add the milk or cream, salt, pepper, and optional spices, and pour this mixture over the broccoli and cheese.

  6. Bake for 35-40 minutes until the custard is set and the top is golden.

  7. Allow the quiche to cool for a few minutes before cutting.


Tips and Tricks:


  • Broccoli Prep: Make sure the broccoli is well-drained and dry to avoid adding extra moisture to the quiche.

  • Cheese: Sharp cheddar adds a great depth of flavor, but you can use a milder cheddar if preferred.

  • Custard: For a richer quiche, use cream instead of milk. Alternatively, a combination of both offers a balance of richness and calorie content.

  • Blind Baking: For a firmer, less soggy crust, blind bake the crust for about 10 minutes before adding the filling.

  • Egg Mixture: Whisk just until combined to avoid incorporating too much air which can cause the quiche to puff up and then deflate.

  • Seasoning: Don’t forget to season the broccoli for more flavor.

  • Let it Set: Allow the quiche to rest after baking so it sets up for tidy slices.

  • Variations: You can add sautéed onions, garlic, or crisp bacon bits for additional flavors.

  • Check for Doneness: The quiche should be slightly jiggly in the center but mostly set. A knife inserted in the center should come out clean.





Enjoy your Broccoli and Cheddar Quiche as it makes a satisfying meal for any time of the day - be it breakfast, lunch, or dinner. With these tips and tricks, you're sure to create a delightful and satisfying dish!
