Who doesn’t like quiche? It’s easy to make, versatile, and works for any meal. How about after a long weekend workout or a post New Years Eve brunch? The ingredient list is easy to procure if you don’t already have it on hand. As far as ingredients and spices go, there’s no limit that I’ve found. All you really need are eggs and cheese. Heck, you don’t even need a crust if you are on a low-carb regimen like the Atkins diet. To explore a broad range of possibilities, check out a quiche cookbook. But I digress. Let’s jump into my ham and onion quiche recipe.
- 1 frozen pie crust, thawed, or make your own
- 6 large eggs
- 3/4 cup milk (whole milk is richer)
- Kosher or pink salt to taste
- Freshly-ground pepper to taste
- 1 1/2 cup chopped cooked ham
- 1 1/2 cup shredded cheese (I used Parmesan last night, but it’s your call.)
- 1 or 2 green onions, chopped (hint: reserve the root section with about 3/4 inch of the onion. Plant it in a pot or your herb garden, roots down, covered with 1/2 inch of soil. 99% chance it will sprout.)
- Preheat oven to 375⁰ F.
- Whisk together eggs, salt, pepper, and milk, in a mixing bowl.
- In the crust, make 2 layers; each has half of the ham, half of the green onions, and 1/2 cup cheese.
- Pour the egg mixture over it evenly.
- Sprinkle the remaining cheese over it evenly. Note: as you see in the picture above, I used an oven-safe skillet to hold the pie tin because it was SO full. If you have egg mixture left over, that’s OK; cook it up separately. Waste not, want not.
- I baked mine for an hour to perfection; I suggest you start checking after about 40 minutes. If the top jiggles when you shake it, it’s not done.
- Remove, cool for a few minutes, and enjoy!
That’s all there is to this easy ham and onion quiche recipe. It may be fairly basic but it’s not hard to see the many possible variations you can come up with depending on your mood. I’m a big believer in experimentation in the kitchen.
