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
- 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.
