Perfect Quiche For Leftover Baked Ham

This site has several recipes for making Quiche. Well, friends, here is another one.  Don baked a beautiful ham and, of course, we had some leftovers. There is no crust to worry about and, if you really want to be a tad ‘lazy’, serve it with some frozen hash browns. Just sayin’.

  • 2 tbsp. dry plain bread crumbs (can make your own)
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped fine onions
  • 1 1/4 cup of diced cooked ham
  • 8 oz, shredded Swiss cheese
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 cup whole milk

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Butter a quiche dish or pie plate and sprinkle in the bread crumbs all over to cover the pie plate.

Cook the onions in the butter until golden in colour. This should take about 5 minutes. Add the ham and cook only enough to warm it up. Spread this mixture on the bottom of the dish and sprinkle the cheese on top.

Whisk together the eggs, cream and milk and when well blended, carefully pour over the cheese. Set plate on a baking tray lined with parchment paper (in case it runneth over) and bake until the top is golden and set in the center. This could take 20 minutes.  Reduce to 375 degrees for a further 20 minutes. Test for doneness. Add 2 minutes if needed. Cool for about 5-6 minutes, before cutting in wedges.

If this is breakfast or brunch fare, serve with hash browns. If it is a main lunch serve with a beautiful green salad, warm buns and a glass of lovely white wine.
