Pepper Brie and Broccoli Flan
On a lightly floured surface, roll out pastry dough and use to line a 9" flan pan. Prick base with a fork, refrigerate 10 minutes.*
Preheat oven to 375¡ F. Cook broccoli in boiling salted water 5 minutes, drain thoroughly and chop coarsely. Set aside.
Cut cheese into pieces and put in the top section of a double boiler set over simmering water. Heat gently until melted. Remove from heat. Beat together half and half and eggs, then blend into melted cheese. Stir in parsley and season lightly with salt and pepper.
Arrange broccoli in pastry shell, pour cheese mixture over broccoli and bake in oven 30 to 40 minutes, or until lightly browned and a knife inserted off center comes out clean. Serve warm with a salad. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
