This is somewhat like a quiche. The crust consists of Cheddar cheese, which is delicious. A must try.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Bring about 1 inch water to a boil in a pot. Place the chopped broccoli in a steamer basket over boiling water, and steam 5 minutes, or until tender but firm.
  3. In a bowl, mix the Cheddar cheese, 3/4 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and mustard. Mix in 1/4 cup butter until evenly moist. Press into the bottom and sides of an 8 inch pie dish.
  4. Melt the 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet over medium heat, and saute the onion and mushrooms until tender. Stir in 2 tablespoons flour, half and half, 1 teaspoon salt, and nutmeg. Bring to a boil, and cook 1 minute. Remove from heat. Mix in steamed broccoli. Gradually stir in eggs. Transfer to the pie crust.
  5. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce heat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C), and continue baking 20 minutes, until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

I've made this a few times and it's a family favorite. It tastes sooo good. I modified the recipe only slightly. For the crust I used 1/4 tsp. salt instead of 1/2 tsp. I thought it was too salty. Also for the filling, I substituted light cream for the half-and-half, and added a dash of pepper.

Excellent base recipe. I made a few modifications and this came out superb! First off, instead of steaming the broccoli in a steamer, I added it to a saute pan with a little bit of water (maybe a 1/2 cup) a tablespoon of butter and some minced garlic. When I sauteed the mushrooms, I added a little bit of fresh spinach (about 2 cups/handfuls). I also added a few pinches of Marjoram, Basil, Thyme, and parsley paste (in substitute for fresh parsley). Instead of putting the dry mustard in the dough, I added it to the cream mixture since I bought a pre-made crust. When it came time to add the egg, I added one extra to equal four. Turned out fantastic! One of the best recipes I've used from this site in a while! Enjoy

I have been making this exact recipe for years. I only looked it up because I had lost it. You can change this up in lots of ways by adding different spices and cheeses, vegetables and meats like ham, proscuitto or prepared bacon. As another reviewer said, it needs a bit more salt when made without any of the meats I listed above. Overall, this is a family favorite. I recommend that you increase the ingredients for the crust by about 20% or so to make sure you have enough to fully cover the sides and the bottom of your pie plate.
