Chorizo Quiche Filling

  • 1 1/2 cup cooked broccoli
  • 1/2 cup cooked chorizo
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded Jarlsberg cheese
  • 3 large organic eggs
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 small yellow onion grated
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Buttery Flaky Crust

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 pound unsalted cold butter 2 sticks
  • 1/4 cup cold Crisco
  • 1/3 cup ice water more or less depending on the consistency of the dough


Buttery Flaky Crust

  • In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, and salt.
  • Cut 2 sticks butter into small chunks and add to the flour mixture. With your hands or a pastry cutter, blend until butter chunks are the size of peas.
  • Add in Crisco and with your hands' & combine. It should resemble coarse crumbs. This mixture should remain dry and powdery.
  • Add ice water and mix the dough with hands until combined. The dough should hold a loose ball and be more on the dry side. It should look rough.
  • Roll the dough out and fit it into the pie dish. You can refrigerate freeze it for 30 minutes in the pie dish, which I recommend doing.

Chorizo Quiche Filling

  • Steam the broccoli until it's cooked and set aside.
  • In a skillet heat a little oil and remove the casing from the chorizo. Cook the ground chorizo. It can be a little liquidy.
  • Add all of the quiche ingredients in a bowl and whisk until incorporated.
  • Poor the mixture into the prepare buttery flaky crust pie dish
  • Beat 1 egg and brush over the crust before baking.
  • Cook in a preheated 350-degree oven for 45-50 minutes until the quiche is golden brown and the middle has set.
