Bacon Broccoli Quiche

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
  • Makes
    6-8 servings


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


  • 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.
  • 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 in the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10-15 minutes before cutting.

    I would give this five stars if I cut the salt in half. With all the bacon and the cheese, for my family 1/2 teaspoon salt would have been enough. Otherwise, it was good, baked okay, etc.

    Perfect-- I used gluten free flour and made some in a small pan without the crust for a gluten allergy person and it was great. The rest was made with the crust and it was perfect. This will be made again and again.
