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.
