Debs Ham and Cheese Quiche Recipe


Well, here it is as promised! My favorite Quiche recipe.. It's not fancy at all...Maybe that's why the kids like it??? Since we started keeping chickens we have a lot of eggs around so I started baking quiches... They are fast and easy to prepare and work with breakfast or lunch as a light meal...

Crust: I cheat and use ready made crust 9" deep dish or frozen Pillsbury Pie Crust from the frozen food department. Follow baking directions on crust package.
Tip: you won't need to bake the crust first...but you will need to cover the edges with foil for the first half of the baking time so the edges won't get too brown...

Preheat your oven to 375.

8-9 medium size eggs
One can evaporated milk or one cup 1% milk
2 cups shredded white cheddar cheese
1/4 cup sweet white onion
1 cup chopped ham
Sea Salt and fresh ground pepper on top before you bake!

Mix eggs and milk together in large bowl with wire whisk.
Brown onion and ham in skillet until lightly browned.
Add cheese,ham and onion mixture to eggs.
Pour the egg mixture carefully into your prepared pie crust and place on cookie sheet covered in foil... filling it just about a 1/2 inch below the top of the crust edge. That way if things bubble over while baking it will be an easy clean up! Hey, I'm not Martha.. I spill when I cook :) Salt and pepper the top before putting it in the oven..

Bake on the middle rack for 40 - 50 minutes...

Serving suggestion:

This quiche is perfect for a late Sunday breakfast served warm with a
cantaloupe and blueberries fruit salad and banana nut bread...Yummmmy!!!!
