    • 3 large eggs
    • 3 egg yolks
    • 300ml double cream
    • 100g stilton
    • 250g shortcrust pastry

    • A drizzle of oil

    Method

    1. Preheat oven to... • Fan Oven: 160°C. • Electric Oven: 180°C. • Gas Oven: Gas Mark 4.
    2. Roll out pastry to size of flan dish.
    3. Line a 9” (23cm) flan dish with baking paper then shortcrust pastry, cutting off any excess.
    4. Prepare fillings. • Cut bacon into roughly 1cm squares and then fry until crispy in the oil. Remove from the heat and let cool. • Boil some water in a pan, cut broccoli florets into bite size pieces then put them in the boiling water, boil them for approximately 4 minutes, then place them into cold water to cool them quickly then drain. • Take a mixing bowl, put the eggs, egg yolks & cream in and whisk them together. • Crumble the stilton.
    5. Arrange broccoli florets evenly in the flan dish.
    6. Sprinkle the crumbled stilton over and around the broccoli.
    7. Put the bacon and any remaining oil / bacon juices in the egg and cream mixture and mix together.
    8. Pour the egg, cream & bacon mixture evenly over the broccoli & stilton, then sprinkle a pinch of black pepper over the top.
    9. Place quiche in middle of the pre-heated oven and cook for 35-45 minutes.
    10. Leave to cool & then serve with your favourite salad and maybe some home-fried chips.

    Tip

    • If you have no use for the left over egg whites and do not wish to waste them, you can replace the 3 egg yolks in the recipe with 1 large egg.

    I liked the mix for the filling but was unsure about baking the quiche without baking blind the case first. I used ready made pastry and baked it blind in the oven for 15 minutes but the case shrank a bit too much so some of the filling overflowed. However it turned out pretty well. Think I’ll make my own pastry next time using a recipe from another quiche recipe. Otherwise really good.  -  19 Oct 2017
