Ham & Cheese Quiche Recipe

They say Real Men Don’t Eat Quiche, but real men like this quiche. It’s simple, it’s delicious and surprisingly manly.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 Pillsbury pie crust (or homemade)
  • 10 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 cup medium cheddar cheese (or any cheese that melts well like gouda, gruyère, havarti)
  • 1/2 bunch chopped green onions
  • 8 oz. cubed ham, drained
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 cup sour cream (optional garnish)

Place homemade pie crust or store bought Pillsbury (this brand because it isn’t sweet) pie crust in pie pan, poke crust with a fork about 20 times all around and then bake for 15-20 minutes.

Drain ham on paper towels. Pat dry as well so that much of the moisture is soaked up by the paper towels.

Beat eggs, heavy cream & flour together. Blender on medium speed works well for this.

Stir in cheese, green onions, ham and salt & pepper.

Remove pie crust from oven when light golden. Pour mixture into pre-baked pie crust.

Bake quiche with a baking sheet on the shelf underneath it to help catch any possible overflow. Use a guard to protect the edges of the crust from over-baking once they are light golden brown. Bake for about an hour or until a knife comes out clean. Quiche will continue to bake for a little while after removed from oven since it’s still hot.

Serves eight or if you would like to have larger friends, six. Place a dollop of sour cream on each piece and an artful green onion if desired.

She has enticed many a gentleman and made their tastebuds dance. She is a quiche that even real men love.
