Broccoli Quiche with Mashed Potato Crust Recipe
- 2 large potatoes, peeled
- 2 cups chopped fresh broccoli
- ¼ cup milk
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- ½ onion, chopped
- 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
- ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
step 2: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes; drain. Meanwhile, place broccoli in a steamer over 1 inch of boiling water, and cover. Cook until tender but still firm, about 2 to 6 minutes. Drain and set aside.
step 3: Mash the potatoes with milk and salt. Brush a deep 9 inch pie dish with olive oil and press the potatoes in. Brush with remaining olive oil. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes or until lightly browned.
step 4: Arrange onions, broccoli and cheese in the potato crust. Whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Pour over broccoli and cheese.
step 5: Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, until slightly puffed and cooked throughout. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.
