Quiche made with Costco Ingredients: Figure Out Your Own Dough

Well, I just had a very depressing experience.

Hanging out with all these food bloggers and attending the Music City Eats festival (which was just rated one of the top food festivals in the nation) gave me delusions of grandeur.

I was trying to re-create a crust that I saw Nancy Silverton make at the festival. I had a clear mental vision of how my cute mini cherry turnovers would look.

But, instead, I had fragments of dough all over my kitchen.  The jam leaked out of the turnovers and burned. The taste wasn't horrible, but my dough didn't look or behave anything like Nancy Silverton's.

I ended up patching it together and using it for a quiche shell. 

Quiche Filling (figure out your own dough)

1 cup chopped cooked broccoli (I buy the frozen, organic at Costco)
1/2 chopped Vadalia onion, sautéed in olive oil until translucent 
1 cup shredded Parmegiano Reggiano Cheese from Costco
3 eggs
3/4 cup heavy cream

Put broccoli and sautéed onion in quiche shell, mix other ingredients, and pour over broccoli mixture.  Bake about 30 minutes in 350 degree oven until set (knife inserted off center comes back almost clean).

  1. The cherry turnovers, spake He Who Samples Second, weren't bad at all - but the quiche was absolutely scrumptious!
