Crust (optional, can replace with store-bought Pie Crust)
1¼ Cups All-Purpose Flour
1 Stick Unsalted Butter, Cold, Cut into Small Pieces
½ Teaspoon Kosher Salt
2-4 Tablespoons Ice Water
2 Cups Small Broccoli Florets
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
¾ Cup Milk
¼ Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
1 Garlic Clove, Minced or Grated
1 Tablespoon Chives
¾ Cup Grated Cheddar Cheese
Salt and Pepper To Taste
- Preheat the oven to 375°F.
- To make the crust, pulse the flour and salt in a food processor. Add the butter and pulse several times to break it down. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing just until the dough comes together, about 30 seconds.
- Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface and form into a disc, handling it as little as possible. Cover in plastic wrap and put in the freezer for 20 minutes or the fridge for an hour.
- Meanwhile, add the broccoli to a sheet pan, toss with the olive oil and a pinch of salt, and roast for 13 minutes, until tender and crisp.
- Remove the chilled dough from the freezer/fridge and roll it into a circle at least an inch larger than a 9-inch pie plate. Fold the circle in half and quickly transfer it to the pie plate. Press it into the plate and trim off any excess dough.
- Dock the crust by poking it with a fork all over. If you have pie weights, place them on a piece of parchment paper on top of the crust. Place the pie plate on a baking sheet and bake the crust for 10-15 minutes, until it is set but not colored.
- In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, cayenne, garlic, ½ teaspoon salt, and pepper. Fold in the broccoli, cheddar, and chives.
- Pour the quiche filling into the crust and bake for 20 minutes, until the center is firm.
