Broccoli Cheddar Quiche with Pancetta

Quiche is my favorite thing to get creative with next to pizza. I often make it on Sundays and put all the vegetables that are about to go bad in my fridge into it.  When I think about flavors that go together well I feel like you can't go wrong with broccoli and cheddar. Add in some sweet onions that have been caramelized in pancetta and you have a winning bite. I give you this lovely broccoli cheddar quiche with pancetta that was my latest Sunday cooking adventure.

Ingredients

  • 1 premade pie crust (unless you're adventurous enough to make it on your own!)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup whole milk or half & half
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 2 oz diced pancetta, uncooked
  • 1-1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 medium vidalia or yellow onion, sliced thin

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.

  2. In a non-stick skillet pan saute pancetta over medium heat for 5-8 minutes. You want there to be a little bit of the pancetta fat in liquid form so the onions have something to caramelize in. 

  3. Add the onions and lower the heat to low-medium. This will prevent the onions from burning and prevent the pancetta from getting too crispy too fast. Saute for about 20 minutes - untill the onions are nice and golden brown, stirring every few minutes.

  4. While the onions are cooking, place the pie crust into a pie plate and pre-bake in the oven for 15 minutes. 

  5. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, garlic powder, onion powder and black pepper.

  6. Take the pie crust out of the oven and add all the elements in the following order: broccoli, pancetta/onion mixture and cheese (see video below). Pour egg mixture over the top, ensuring that it funnels down into the cheese and broccoli.

  7. Reduce oven heat to 375F and place quiche in to bake for 35-45 minutes. Test with a tooth pick to see if it's ready (if its done there will be no liquid on the tooth pick).

  8.  Let stand for 10 minutes prior to serving.

Happy Eats!
