Ham and Cheese Quiche

Easy Ham and Cheese Quiche is a rich cheesy quiche that can be eaten for breakfast, lunch and dinner. This is perfect for leftover ham from Easter or Thanksgiving.

I love making quiches. They are so easy to make and they taste great with all different ingredients. I usually make them on the weekends, with leftover meat or veggies from weeknight dinners.

I use a frozen pie shell to save time and make a quick pie filing with a little onion, some eggs, half-and-half cheese and ham. You can sub bacon for ham.

Pour the filling into the pie crust, pop it in the oven and 45 minutes later, your quiche is ready.


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • ½ medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 ½ cups diced ham
  • 1 cup shredded swiss cheese
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 deep dish frozen pie crust

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Melt butter in a small non stick pan and cook onion until soft.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, half-and-half, salt and pepper.

Stir in ham and both cheeses (I like to save a little to sprinkle on top after it is done)

Stir in cooked onion.

Pour filling into pie crust, set on a baking sheet and place in oven for 40 to 45 minutes, or until set.

Serve warm or chilled.

Love & Sparkle,
