This turkey and broccoli quiche is flavored with curry powder and shredded cheese. The recipe calls for Gruyere or Swiss cheese, but cheddar, fontina, havarti, or another type of cheese would be good as well. Prepare this quiche for a brunch, or serve it for lunch with soup or salad.
1 (9-inch) pie shell
3/4 cup chopped broccoli
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
3/4 cup chopped cooked turkey
1/2 cup shredded Gruyere cheese, or Swiss cheese
3 large eggs
1 1/4 cups half-and-half, or whole milk
1 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
Preheat oven to 425 F. Line unbaked crust with parchment paper or foil and fill with dried beans or pie weights.
Bake lined crust for about 15 minutes, or until edges are browned. Remove crust to a cooling rack and carefully remove pie weights and paper or foil. Reduce oven temperature to 375 F.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-low heat, melt butter. Add a few tablespoons of water along with broccoli and onion. Cook, stirring, until tender.
Sprinkle broccoli and onion, turkey, and cheese into partially-baked pie shell.
In a medium bowl, whisk eggs until slightly beaten. Whisk in half-and-half, curry powder, and salt.
Pour egg mixture over turkey and broccoli mixture.
Place quiche on a baking sheet and carefully move to oven.
Bake for about 35 minutes, or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean.
- 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.
