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.

Ingredients:

  • 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,

Mackenzie
