Bacon Broccoli Quiche Recipe

Bacon Broccoli Quiche Recipe

Even folks who claim not to like quiche rave about this one! I developed the recipe by combining the best of five others that I'd tried. Now it's a hearty family favorite that always gets star billing at my traditional Christmas morning brunch.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 55 min. + standing YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon dried minced onion
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 3 cups frozen chopped broccoli, thawed and patted dry
  • 12 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 8 medium fresh mushrooms, chopped
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 sheet refrigerated pie pastry

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Whisk in eggs, one at a time. Stir in the milk, broccoli, bacon, mushrooms and cheese.
  • 2. Line a 9-in. deep-dish pie plate with pastry. Trim pastry to 1/2 in. beyond edge of plate; flute edges. Pour broccoli mixture into crust. Bake at 350° for 55-60 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10-15 minutes before cutting. Yield: 6-8 servings.
