1/2 cup sliced mushrooms (I used portabello, white would be fine)
1 med. onion, chopped
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
1 egg yolk
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup shredded cheddar, divided
3 pieces cooked bacon, crumbled
salt and pepper
2 tbs. olive oil
2 tbs. butter
1 frozen pie crust, or your own homemade
How to make it
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In saute pan, melt butter, add olive oil. Add chopped onion, garlic and mushrooms, cook until just tender (3-5 minutes). Add broccoli (previously steamed and tossed with salt and pepper to taste), heat through. Remove from heat, set aside.
Whisk together cream, eggs, egg yolk and 3/4 cup of the shredded cheese. Add about a teaspoon of salt and 8 twists of the pepper grinder to this mixture. Don't overdo it, but you don't want it bland, either.
Layer the remaining 1/4 cup of shredded cheese onto the crust. Top with the broccoli mixture. Pour over all the cream/egg mixture and with wooden spoon, gently mix down into the vegetables. Top with crumbled bacon pieces.
Bake for 45 minutes, or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
