Preheat oven to...
• Fan Oven: 160°C.

Roll out pastry to size of flan dish.
Line a 9” (23cm) flan dish with baking paper then shortcrust pastry, cutting off any excess.
• 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.
Arrange broccoli florets evenly in the flan dish.
Sprinkle the crumbled stilton over and around the broccoli.
Put the bacon and any remaining oil / bacon juices in the egg and cream mixture and mix together.
Pour the egg, cream & bacon mixture evenly over the broccoli & stilton, then sprinkle a pinch of black pepper over the top.
Place quiche in middle of the pre-heated oven and cook for 35-45 minutes.
Leave to cool & then serve with your favourite salad and maybe some home-fried chips.
• 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.
