  • Pie Crust: The foundation of any quiche, you can use a homemade pie crust or store-bought. For a rustic touch, try a buttery, flaky crust. If you’re in a hurry, a sheet of puff pastry works wonders as a quick substitute.
  • Broccoli Florets: Fresh broccoli adds a vibrant green color and a dose of nutrients. Cauliflower florets make a great substitute if you’re looking for a different flavor profile.
  • Potatoes: Cooked and diced potatoes add a hearty texture. Feel free to swap in sweet potatoes for a slight sweetness or even leftover roasted veggies for added flavor and zero waste.
  • Sharp Shredded Cheddar Cheese: Its bold taste complements the creamy eggs and smoky bacon. Swap with Gouda or Swiss cheese for a smoother, nutty flavor, or mix it with a small amount of parmesan cheese.
  • Bacon: Adds a smoky, savory depth. For a lighter option, turkey crispy bacon or even ham can be used as substitutes. You need cooked bacon.
  • Eggs: The binding agent of the quiche, providing structure and richness. There’s no direct substitute for eggs in this recipe, as they’re essential for the quiche’s texture.
  • Heavy Cream: Creates a luxuriously creamy texture. Whole milk or half-and-half can be used for a lighter quiche.
  • Seasonings: Paprika adds a gentle warmth. You can use smoked paprika for a smokier flavor, while salt and freshly ground black pepper are essential for enhancing all the flavors in the quiche.

  • Soup: A bowl of soup makes for a cozy and comforting meal. Choose a light, brothy soup to complement the dish.
  • Fruit Salad: For a brunch setting, a bright and colorful fruit salad can provide a sweet counterpoint to the savory quiche. Use seasonal fruits and a hint of mint for freshness.
  • Wine Pairing: A light, crisp white wine such as Sauvignon Blanc or a dry Rosé can cleanse the palate and enhance the flavors of the quiche. If you prefer red, a chilled, light-bodied Pinot Noir would be a lovely accompaniment.

Ingredients

  • 1 pie crust 9-inch deep dish or 10-inch unbaked
  • 2 cups broccoli florets cooked
  • 1 ½ cups potatoes cooked and diced (about 2 medium ones)
  • 1 ½ cups sharp cheddar cheese grated ( about 6 ounces)
  • 6 slices bacon cooked and chopped
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 ½ cups heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon paprika mild or hot, based on your taste
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper freshly ground

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • Mix broccoli, potatoes, cheese, and bacon in a large bowl, then transfer the mixture into the pie shell.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, cream, paprika, salt, and pepper until well combined.
  • Pour the egg mixture evenly over the ingredients in the pie shell.
  • Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the quiche is golden brown on top and set in the center.

Notes

  • Pre-cook broccoli and potatoes. 
  • Consider varying the cheese for different flavors; for example, a mix of sharp cheddar and Swiss adds depth.
  • Bacon can be substituted with ham or turkey bacon for a lighter version. For a vegetarian twist, skip the bacon and add sautéed mushrooms.
  • Let the quiche rest for 10 minutes after baking for easier slicing. This settling time helps the filling firm up.
  • Allow to cool before serving. Enjoy warm or cold, stores well in the fridge for 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months. Reheat in the oven to maintain crust’s crispiness.
