Wow Your Guests With Gluten-Free Broccoli Cheddar Quiche
If you’re in the mood for something new for breakfast or want to present friends and family members with an impressive meal at your next get-together, broccoli cheddar quiche could be the answer. You can also make the dish gluten-free, which is ideal if you have friends and relatives who are gluten intolerant, have Celiac disease or want to eat a diet that is low in carbohydrates. Getting Started With the Broccoli Cheddar Quiche Recipe
This quiche is versatile and comes out great if you bake the pie crust before adding the filling. Silly Zak’s has a delicious pie crust that bakes evenly and adds a decadent texture to the quiche. Baking the gluten-free crust before placing the filling inside, which is also called blind baking, keeps the crust from becoming soggy as well.
Total prep and baking time for the quiche is about an hour and a half and this meal serves about eight people.
In addition to Silly Zak’s pie crust, you’ll need:
1 tablespoon of unsalted butter
2 cups of diced yellow onion (usually one large onion is enough for this)
3/4 cup of heavy cream
3/4 cup of steamed broccoli florets
1 cup of grated sharp cheddar cheese
A great option is to add mushrooms.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and place the pie crust inside. Bake the crust for about 15 minutes until the crust is slightly golden brown. Be sure the crust is completely dry before removing it from the oven.
While the crust is baking, sautee melted butter and onion. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cook until the onion and butter mixture is a light golden brown. In a bowl, whisk the eggs and cream together. Add the onions to the egg mixture, along with the cheese and broccoli florets. Add about a 1/2 teaspoon more of salt and pepper.
Take the pie crust from the oven. Whisk all the ingredients together and pour the mixture into the pie crust. Place the quiche in the oven and bake until the quiche is completely set, which usually takes about 45 minutes. The quiche can be served warm or at room temperature.
Wait until the quiche is cooled, you can store it in a tightly covered container; the quiche will last for up to three days. When you’re ready to reheat the quiche, cover it with foil and place it in the oven at 325 degrees until the quiche is warmed, which takes about 15 minutes.
