broccoli, bacon, and cheddar quiche


when i was in grad school, i worked as a barista in a local cafe that served quiche for breakfast.  each day, two different types of quiche would be featured on the menu.  ever since then i have loved quiche.

quiche is so versatile because you can put anything in it.  the combinations are endless.  this past weekend, ryan and i made a quiche with broccoli, turkey bacon, and cheddar cheese in it for breakfast.  it was absolutely delicious!

broccoli, bacon, and cheddar quiche
prep time: 5-10 minutes
cooking time: 30-35 minutes
yields: 5-6 servings

ingredients:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup cold butter (cubed)
3-5 tablespoons cold water
4 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 cups chopped cooked broccoli
1/2 cup crumbled cooked bacon
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

directions:
preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.  in a food processor cut the butter into the flour until coarse crumbs form.  while the food processor is on, add the cold water until the mixture forms into a ball.  on a floured surface roll out the dough to fit a 9 inch pie plate.  fit the dough into the pie plate, and flute the edges.  place the broccoli, bacon, and cheddar cheese into the crust.  in a bowl, mix together the eggs, milk, and mayonnaise.  pour the mixture into the crust.  bake uncovered for 30-35 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.  let the quiche stand for 5 minutes before cutting into it.

enjoy!
love, laurie
