Broccoil Swiss Quiche

Broccoli Swiss Quiche

1 pastry shell for 9 inch pie plate

1 med onion, chopped finely

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 cups broccoli, chopped small

2 Tb butter

1 tsp dried tarragon

3 eggs

3/4 cup cream

3/4 cup low fat milk

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp ground black pepper

2 cups Swiss cheese, grated

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

1. Line 9 inch pie plate with your premade crust. (I just use a basic pie crust recipe but you can save time if you want to buy the the premade kind at the grocery store.) Trim extra dough up to 1 inch from lip of plate. Fold dough overhang underneath and flute around edge of pie crust. Bake in preheated oven at 400 for 7 minutes. Change oven temp to 375 degrees.

2. Melt butter in pan and sauté onion over medium heat. Part way through add the garlic and chopped broccoli. Sauté broccoli until just beginning to soften. Stir in tarragon. Remove from heat and spread mixture in bottom of pie crust.

3. Next layer shredded cheeses over broccoli mixture in pie crust. Beat eggs together then add cream, milk, salt and pepper - stir well to combine. Pour over everything in pie dish. Bake at 375 degrees for 30-40 minutes* of until crust is golden and knife inserted into the filling comes out clean. Let stand 10-15 minutes before cutting. Serve immediately.

I'm thinking it should be about 30-40 minutes to bake but check often to make sure.

Pin It!

  1. Questions: Is cream like half and half? what kind of pastry shell do you use? like filo dough?
