I just love the taste of fresh broccoli i out of the dome during the winter months. In this post I share an easy and taste Broccoli Cheddar Tart Recipe you will want to print and use daily!
Broccoli Cheddar Tarte Recipe
For this recipe, you will need a few basic ingredients. I am sure most of these you will have on hand. Broccoli is super easy to grow during the cooler months. I discovered this while growing in my first-year round dome experience.
1/2 cup broccoli florets, chopped into small pieces
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, sliced thin
3 fresh duck eggs ( I used 5 chicken eggs)
1 cup heavy cream
4 breakfast sausages, sliced
3/4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
2 teaspoons flour
Salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste
Using your favorite crust recipe or use a store bought crust
To blind bake, I chill for at least 30 minutes once I’ve rolled out the dough and have it in the pan. I prick the bottom, then line it with parchment and pie weights and bake the crust at 400 degrees for 20-30 minutes until it is lightly browned and nearly done.
Then remove from the oven and let cool; reducing the oven temperature to 325 degrees.
Cook the sausage until browned and crispy in a cast iron skillet.
Remove and roast the broccoli, onion and garlic in the same pan over high heat until crispy and browned.
Whisk the eggs and heavy cream, season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Toss together the shredded cheese and flour.
Arrange the broccoli mixture in the tart pan, cover with the cheese and then carefully pour the egg mixture over the top.
Bake for 20-30 minutes until just set. Cover the crust with foil, if necessary, to prevent over browning.
Remove from the oven, cut into slices or wedges and serve warm or at room temperature.

Thank you Lisa Steele for sharing this recipe with me.
Duck Eggs Daily Book
One of my favorite books I keep out on the table in the great room so Little Helper ( AKA my 4-year-old Niece) and I can read every time she visits. Author Lisa Steele is the real deal when it comes to raising poultry. We are fans of her first book, “Fresh Eggs Daily,” which is about raising chickens naturally. Her new book is just as adorable and a valuable guide to raising ducks for eggs and just to enjoy as a part of the family. Perhaps my favorite thing about the book besides the adorable photos is all the recipes featuring duck eggs. I want to raise my own ducks just so I can make the recipes!
