Roasted Brussels Sprout and Gruyere Quiche Recipe (1)

‘Tis the season for indulgence, absolutely. Butit’s also brussels sprouts season, and that get’s me almost as excited as cookies and candy.

My love for brussels sprouts knows no bounds, and my husbands teases me about it all the time— “Brussels sprouts again?” But I will not apologize for it and besides, I gotta do something balance out all the sweets this time of year.

This quiche combines so many of my favorite things— roasted brussels sprouts, sharp gruyere cheese, and flaky pie crust. It’s light and packed with fabulous flavor. I gave the crust that accompanied the recipe a try, and it was very similar to my favorite all-butter pie crust recipe. Feel free to use either.

The beauty of quiche is you can serve it anytime, breakfast, lunch or dinner! It’s easy enough to make for any occasion, but sophisticated for a brunch party or even Christmas morning.

baking tip:How to Blind Bake Pie Crust

Baking your pie crust until it is partially or completely sethelps keep the bottom of the crust from getting soggy while it bakes. This is particularly helpful in recipes with a very wet filling. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Prepare pie crust according to recipe instructions.
  2. Transfer piecrust to pie dish and freeze for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Line with parchment paper or greased foil and fill completely with pie weights or dried beans/rice.
  4. Bake at 425 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until edges appearset.
  5. Lift parchment/foil and beans out of crust and bake for 5 minutes more until bottom is set.
  6. Let cool or use immediately.

For the crust:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (120 grams)
  • 1 cup cake flour (120 grams)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter , cut into cubes (226 grams)
  • 6 tablespoons ice cold water (90 ml)

For the filling:

  • ¾ lb brussels sprouts , quartered (340 grams)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup whole milk (237 ml)
  • 1 cup heavy cream (237 ml)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • cup minced onion (50 grams)
  • 1 ⅓ cup shredded gruyere cheese (113 grams)


To prepare the crust:

  • Combine the flour, cake flour and salt in a large bowl. Add the butter and use two knives or a pastry blender to cut it into the dry ingredients until the butter is the size of small peas. Add the cold water and mix until it comes together into a ball. It's okay if it's a little crumbly. Shape into a disk, cover with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours and up to 5 days.

  • Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a round 9-inch x 2-inch cake pan with parchment paper (see Notes).

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pie crust into an approximate 12-inch circle. Transfer to the prepared cake pan. Trim edges to 2 inches and tuck into the pan. Place a well greased sheet of parchment paper directly on top of the surface of the crust. Fill with pie weights or dried beans or uncooked rice, making sure it's filled all the way to the top of the pan.

  • Bake for 20 minutes, or until crust is barely set. Remove the top piece of parchment and weights and bake until just barely golden brown, about 20 additional minutes. Let cool completely.

To make the filling and assemble the quiche:

  • Increase oven temperature to 450°oven and roast until brussels sprouts are golden and slightly tender, about 20 minutes. Let them cool for about 5 minutes. Decrease oven temperature to 325° F.

  • Whisk together the milk, cream, eggs, yolks, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Stir in the brussels sprouts. Sprinkle half of the cheese in the bottom of the crust. Pour the egg mixture on top, filling it all the way to the top (see Notes). Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.

  • Bake until quiche is set when jiggled and the top is browned slightly, about 1 hour. Let quiche cool at room temperature for about an hour before serving if possible. Store leftovers in the fridge.



  • You can also use a 9-inch pie pan. No need to line with parchment paper.
  • Depending on you pan and crust, you could have slightly more filling than will fit. Do not overfill the crust, discard any leftovers.

    This quiche looks super tasty! Gruyere makes everything better!

  2. Elisa @ Insalata di Sillabe Reply

    I have a true passion for quiches, I love how versatile yet pretty easy they are to make. Plus, in my opinion, nothing can beat a flaky, buttery pie crust and a veggie/cheese filling! I already know this will become a winter staple around here! Pinned 🙂

      Yes, exactly! A gal after my own heart. 🙂

  3. Liz @ Floating Kitchen Reply

    Yeah for brussels sprouts again (exclamation point)! Love them and can never have enough. Now I can eat them for breakfast too. Great looking quiche, Annalise!

  7. Becky at Vintage Mixer Reply

    Love this idea! I can’t get enough brussels and Josh loves them so the more way to use them the merrier this season will be 🙂

  8. Liren Reply

    I love brussels sprouts in a quiche but I have yet to make it with gruyere! I can just taste the deliciousness 🙂

  9. Amy @ Amy's Healthy Baking Reply

    YES!! I love Brussels just as much as cookies, so it’s perfect that the two are in season during the holidays at the same time! 😉 Last year, I roasted them every day to eat with an omelette for breakfast. Love how you combined the two in a flaky pie crust! Pinned!

  10. Aggie Reply

    Um, yes please!! This is my kind of food. I want to have this for breakfast! (and lunch, dinner…)

  11. Nutmeg Nanny Reply

  12. KalynsKitchen Reply

    This is both gorgeous and totally drool-worthy!

    1) Prelim tip of how to blind bake the crust is completely different from the blind baking instructions of the recipe: Tip says to roll out crust, lay in pie dish and freeze for 30’ before filling with pie weights and baking, recipe says to just roll out, fill with pie weights and bake. Tip says bake for 20-25’ then remove weights and bake for 5’ more, recipe says bake for 20’ then remove weights and bake for 20’ more. These are big differences.

    2) List of ingredients calls for 1/3 cup minced onion but the directions don’t include this
