Awesome Golden Cheddar Broccoli Pie
Olive oil spray
1/2 cup blanched almond flour
2 tablespoons solid coconut oil (not melted) or diced chilled butter
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup half-and-half or cream
3 large eggs
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
Dash of cayenne pepper, optional
2 cups chopped steamed broccoli florets
1/2 cup diced cooked onions
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons finely grated Parmesan
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray a 10-inch glass or ceramic pie dish with olive oil spray.
In a medium-large bowl, add almond flour, coconut oil, salt and baking powder. Using a pastry or dough cutter, cut the coconut oil into the flour mixture until it is evenly distributed and resembles crumbs. Add half-and-half, eggs, pepper, and dry mustard and whisk until blended.
Spread broccoli in the bottom of pie dish; scatter with cooked onions and top with shredded cheddar cheese. Pour liquid mixture evenly over the top of the broccoli/onions and sprinkle with Parmesan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 40-45 minutes until golden brown and done (not jiggly). Mine took about 42 minutes. Cool about 5 minutes before cutting.
Note: When you pour the liquid mixture over the filling ingredients, it may appear like there isn't enough, but it will puff up and surround the filling as it bakes. If your oven tends to run hot, begin checking the pie at around 35 minutes.
