There is something about the combination of cheese and broccoli that I just love. As a child, my Mum use to make a cheesy topping for broccoli as a special treat, as she knew we would always ask for seconds when served that way.

I’ve used the Multipurpose Keto Pie Crust for this recipe, but you could easily use any other low-carb pie crust, just ensure you pre-bake the crust first.

Also — don’t make the baking fail that I did and not press the pie crust evenly around the sides of the dish! When I moved the unbaked quiche for the “before” photo, the runny egg filling spilled over the sides. While this didn’t effect the flavour and the crust was still crunchy, it made washing the pan a nightmare!

If you have any filling left over (this will depend on what pie tin you use – mine was 22 cm/ 9 inches wide and how far up the sides you press the dough when making it), pop it in a small ramekin or muffin tins to make a single-serve crustless quiche.
