Shortcrust pastry
1 2/3 cup flour
125g butter cubed
1 egg yolk keep the egg white for later
2 tablespoons cold water

Add the flour and butter to a food processor blitz until it resembles breadcrumbs now add the egg yolk and water blitz until its starts to form a ball
I then rolled out the dough to shape my quiche dish wrap in glad wrap and place in the fridge meanwhile make the filling

For the Filling:

1 head broccoli cut into small pieces cook and drain well add to a food processor and blitz
1 1/2 cups tasty cheese grated
1 cup Mozarella cheese grated
1 1/2 cups bacon pieces

Cook off the onion and bacon in a fry pan allow to cool then mix together in a large bowl with the rest of the ingredients

400ml thickened cream
100ml milk
2 teaspoons chicken stock powder
Salt pepper to taste
5 eggs

Whisk all these ingredients together in a jug

Grease a quiche dish with oil or butter
Roll out your pastry to fit the dish i then poke the bottom with a fork you can blind bake but i didn’t have any baking paper
Bake on 170 for 15 minutes.

Using the leftover egg white brush the pasty then return to the oven for 10 minutes or until the pastry comes away from the edge of the dish

Allow the pastry to cool for 20 minutes now add some of the broccoli bacon cheese mix fill the pastry halfway then pour over some of the egg mix to fill the pastry
