Looking for the perfect recipe for brunch? Or maybe you need a good recipe for quick lunches throughout the week? Make this Savory Pumpkin Broccoli Cheddar Quiche and celebrate #QuicheFeast!
Tis the season for friendly get togethers, of family reunions, of quick lunches while packing to visit family. All those occasions and more lend themselves perfectly to the creation of this quiche. This Savory Pumpkin Broccoli Cheddar Quiche will become your go to recipe for all occasions. Currently, I have 8 pre-sliced, frozen pieces of quiche in my freezer, ready to go whenever I need a quick lunch. When paired with a fresh salad of mixed greens, it’s faster than any fast food you can find! Plus, 100 times healthier as well.
Healthier also because I used to of my favorite ingredients in it – King Arthur Unbleached All Purpose Flour and Cabot Seriously Sharp Cheddar. Remember that time I visited King Arthur Flour and we taste tested a recipe made with 16 types of flours? Unbleached always comes out the winner – I can still remember the comparison of the bleached flour vs. unbleached – the bleached flour tastes artificial almost, like those grocery store cakes you are tempted to buy but know they’ll suck in the flavor department. The unbleached flour gives this crust the perfect flavor and texture!
Cook’s note: I added 3/4 cup of grated cheddar cheese to the pie crust as well – so it’s extra cheesy and the cheese actually caramelizes and melts into this crispy crust!
