Courtesy of ehow.com BROCCOLI & GRUYERE RUSTLESS QUICHE INGREDIENTS • 1 to 2 tbsp unsalted butter, softened • 1 cup diced yellow onion • 1 cup diced pancetta 1 1/2 cup broccoli • 4 large eggs • 2 cups half & half • 1 tsp kosher salt • 1/2 tsp ground
black pepper • 1/8 tsp freshly grated nutmeg • 1 1/2 cups grated gruyere cheese
DIRECTIONS 1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Generously butter a 9-inch pie pan. In a nonstick skillet, cook the pancetta over low heat to render out the fat. After there’s a solid layer of fat on the bottom of the pan, turn the heat up to medium and brown the pancetta for several minutes until crisp. Add the onions and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, until fragrant. During the last minute, toss in the broccoli. Drain off any excess fat. 2. In a medium-sized bowl, create the custard by whisking together the eggs, half & half, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Place the pancetta, broccoli, onion mixture into the bottom of the pie pan, then top with half of the cheese. Pour the custard evenly over the ingredients, then top with the remaining cheese. 3. Carefully place in the oven, and bake for approximately 45 to 50 minutes, or until the top of the quiche is just slightly wobbly in the center but for the most part set. Allow to cool for several minutes before serving. JANUARY
