Cheesy Ham & Asparagus Quiche

Cheesy Ham & Asparagus Quiche is a rich and decadent recipe that is perfect for a special brunch or dinner. A creamy Parmesan layer is topped with an egg and cream custard that is studded with leftover ham and topped with fresh asparagus.

This Thanksgiving, I made 8 lbs of ham because my dad had requested plenty of leftovers in advance. Well, with only 4 people, we had more than enough leftovers for everyone! I decided to put some of the ham to good use for brunch and whipped up this quiche.


  • Single pie crust
  • ⅔ c. cream cheese
  • 1 c. cubed ham
  • ½ c. green onion, chopped
  • 1 bunch of asparagus
  • ¾ c. shredded Parmesan (divided)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1½ c. heavy cream
  • ½ tsp. salt (divided)



  • Preheat your oven to 350.
  • Press the pie crust into a greased quiche pan. Poke the bottom of the crust with a fork in three spots. Place on a cookie sheet and bake the pie crust for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, mix the cream cheese and ⅔ c. Parmesan and microwave for 1 minute. Spread the cheese mixture over the par-baked crust and top with the cubed ham.
  • Whisk the eggs, cream, green onion and ¼ tsp. salt and slowly pour over the ham and cheese mixture.
  • Arrange the spears of asparagus around the quiche in a circular pattern. Spray the top of the quiche with non-stick spray and sprinkle with remaining ¼ tsp. of salt and remaining Parmesan.
  • Bake for 35-45 minutes or until the eggs are set and allow to rest for 10 minutes before serving.

*The very center will still have a slight jiggle when moved, but will set as it rests.

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.
