I love this cheddar bacon broccoli quiche recipe. It is my favorite quiche recipe.

People tend to think of quiche as a bit exotic, so it must be difficult to prepare.

The reality is that is is really quite easy, especially if you decide to use pre-made pie crust.

Cheddar Bacon Broccoli Quiche

Ingredients

  • Pie crust for single 9" one-crust pie
  • 1/2 pound of bacon (about 12 slices), fried crisp and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup broccoli, fresh or frozen, finely chopped
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup minced onion
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups light cream (or whipping cream for super richness)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Method

Step 1

Heat oven to 425°.

Step 2

Prepare pastry for one-crust pie (if using mix or homemade crust recipe) and bake as directed in 9" pie plate or quiche pan.

Step 3

Steam broccoli for a few minutes to partially cook.

Step 4

Layer bacon, onion, brocooli and cheese evenly over bottom of pie crust. Mix together remaining ingredients. Beat well to really mix the eggs using a whisk or blend in the blender at low speed. Pour over other ingredients in pie crust shell. Bake at 425° for 15 minutes.

Step 5

Reduce the heat to 300°. Bake quiche 30 minutes longer or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let pie stand for 10 minutes to cool before cutting.

Variations:

  • Omit the bacon to turn this into a vegetarian quiche.
  • Best pie crust recipes? Try Crisco or lard and use the recipe right on the box. They work wonderfully.
  • Use Swiss or Emmenthal cheese for a milder, but still tangy flavor.
  • Make it Low Carb: Baked in a greased pie plate without the crust, this recipe makes a delicious low carb lunch or dinner entrée.

Either way, this quiche recipe makes a wonderful lunch or light easy dinner recipe with a side salad.

It is perfect for entertaining too.
