  • To bake the pie in an unbaked crust, heat the oven to 425. Fill the unbaked pie crust with the broccoli, turkey, cheese, and egg filling. Place the pie on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes and then reduce the heat to 325 F. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes longer, or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • For extra flavor, sprinkle the top of the quiche with a few tablespoons of diced cooked bacon.
  • You may replace the turkey with diced ham, chicken, or browned bulk sausage.
