GLUTEN-FREE CURRIED BROCCOLI-CHEDDAR TART WITH BACON

Just a super quick recipe post for you today – and it also happens to be one of our favorites: Curried Broccoli-Cheddar Tart with Bacon. Tender bites of green broccoli suspended in currried whipped egg, scattered with spring onions, cheddar cheese and topped with crispy pieces of bacon. And if that weren’t enough, all that goodness is nestled into a buttery, flaky crust.

Broccoli is available year-round but if you’re lucky enough to grow some in your summer garden or find fresh at a farmer’s market, this dish is even better. And if making a crust seems daunting, just spritz a pie plate with cooking spray and make a crustless version; omit the bacon (I know, I know; I cringe as I type those words) and you have a vegetarian version!

The best part? This gem can be served as an appetizer as well as breakfast or serve with a side of lightly-dressed tender greens for lunch or dinner.

  1. This is gorgeous, Deb! I’m not familiar with French curry but will seek it out as it sounds like it would be delicious with eggs. I’ve been all over the broccoli the past month. Even though it’s available year round, you can’t beat it when it’s in season!

    • Kelley ~ my brother-in-law gave us some French Curry for Christmas this last year and it’s divine!! i love a good curry but this is much more mild and goes perfectly in this dish! xo

  2. This is a beauty and gosh what a way to get my broccoli haters to eat one of my favorite vegetables! I could do this with my regular savory quiche shell. Delicious combo of flavors, Deb!

    • Thanks Jamie – I’d never worked with French curry but I’m now a big fan – it’s really lovely!
