Tip: Cook and chill broccoli and cook and prep bacon before your guests arrive. Follow cooking instructions below (do not follow cooking instructions on the vegetable package).

1. Preheat the oven to 350° F.
2. Line a 9½- or 10-inch tart pan with removable bottom with the pastry.
3. Heat nonstick pan over medium heat. Cut all of the bacon into ¾ inch strips. Cook the bacon over medium heat until it is a crisp golden brown and most of the fat has rendered. Using a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to plate lined with paper towels. Set aside to cool. Discard or reserve the remaining fat for other use.
4. In a medium-size bowl, beat eggs, milk, salt and pepper together until well combined. Set aside.
5. Cook FreshDirect broccoli florets in microwavable bag for 1½ minutes in the microwave (please note this is a shorter cooking time than indicated on the bag). Once cooked, remove the broccoli from the bag and refrigerate until cool. Once broccoli is cold, cut larger florets in halves or quarters.
6. Distribute the broccoli florets, bacon and cheddar evenly in the quiche shell. Carefully pour egg mixture over the filling and fill to just below the rim of the crust (you may have some filling left over). Make sure all the filling ingredients are coated with the egg mixture (if necessary use the back of a spoon to push the filling down).
7. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place the filled quiche on the baking sheet. Bake in 350° oven for 45 to 50 minutes. When done, the crust should be browned, and the center should be golden brown and firm to the touch. Serve immediately, or allow the quiche to cool and serve at room temperature.
