Easy Ham and Broccoli Quiche Recipe – Perfect for Leftover Ham!

For the past several years we’ve hosted the Thanksgiving festivities at our house. Depending on who comes, it can be a pretty big crowd.  This year, we numbered 25 in total (kids and adults) and everybody stayed at least one night.  (My parents have a house next door, so we have room for everyone.) So feeding 25 people? Yep, that is a lot of food!

We fried three turkeys, 30 pounds of chicken wings and baked a 12-pound ham. It was a ton of food, and we have definitely had a good amount of leftovers.

We divvied the turkey up into meal sized portions and gone to the freezer.  There was ham leftover as well, but we’ve pretty much taken care of the ham with sandwiches and with the easy quiche recipe I’m sharing today.

Thank you to Shamrock Farms for sponsoring this post and making it possible for me to continue sharing great recipes and crafts!

Ham and Broccoli Quiche is a super easy quiche recipe!

 

Why You Need to Make this Quiche Recipe:

There are so many ways to use up leftover ham, though I have to say, a quiche might possibly be the most delicious way to use the ham.  The great thing about quiches is they are perfect for any meal and they only require a few ingredients and are easy to toss together.

This Ham and Cheese Quiche is loaded with ham, broccoli and cheese – It is AMAZING! Rich, creamy and better than any store bought quiche.

When I was planning this recipe, I originally thought to make a crust-less quiche to help keep me on my low carb track, but I figured, why not put it in a pie shell since that’s what everyone loves.   I’ll just not eat the crust… 

HA- that was just deluded thinking on my part!  This easy quiche recipe is so delicious, and the pie crust came out so perfectly; once I had a tiny little taste, there was no way I could not eat the crust.

I used the Shamrock Farms Half and Half in my Quiche recipe, but using heavy cream (or a mixture of cream and half n half) will make your results even more spectacularly delicious. 

Ingredients in this Quiche:

  • 1 deep dish, 9 inch pie crust or 2 regular pie crusts
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 1/2  cups heavy cream or half and half
  • 1 1/2 cups diced ham
  • 1 cup chopped broccoli florets 
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper

How to Make this Quiche Recipe

(scroll down for the printable recipe card and how to video)

  1. Preheat oven to 375 f.  Line pie dish with crust and prebake for 10 minutes.
  2. In large mixing bowl, whisk eggs and cream together.  Add remaining ingredients. Combine well.
  3. Pour egg mixture into prebaked pie crust.
  4. Reduce oven to 350 f.  Bake quiche about 45 to 55 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  5. Tip: If you find your crust is getting too dark, cover the edges with foil or use a pie shield.

This Quiche Recipe Makes a Lot of Quiche!

  • This recipe is for a DEEP DISH, 9-INCH PIE PLATE, and depending on the depth of your pie plate, you might not be able to fit all of the egg mixture into your crust.  (The store-bought crust that comes in a throw-away tin that says 9 inches is definitely NOT what I consider a deep dish pie plate.  If you’re using the kind of frozen crust you unroll, just give it a couple of extra rolls with a rolling pin to fit a deep dish plate.
  • If you use a regular size pie pan, you’ll need 2 of them.

 

Question: Can I freeze this Ham and Broccoli Quiche?

For Best results (I found this on reference.com, but have not tried it.) Place quiche in the freezer on a baking sheet. “Once the quiche begins to harden, remove it from the baking sheet, wrap it in freezer paper and seal it inside a freezer bag. Then, return the partially frozen quiche to the freezer for full freezing and storage. A frozen, baked quiche does not need to be thawed out in advance of reheating.”

How to Reheat an Already cooked, Frozen Quiche:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Place quiche on baking sheet and cover with foil. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes.  The quiche ready when it reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees.  Allow quiche to cool 10 minutes before cutting.

  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 8 slices

Description

This Ham and Broccoli Quiche Recipe is so easy to make, all you need is eggs, cream, a bit of leftover holiday ham plus a few more ingredients and you’ll have a dish that rivals the results from any gourmet restaurant!


Ingredients

  • 1 deep dish, 9 inch pie crust or 2 regular pie crusts (Deep dish – store bought or make your own. If you use the 1 deep dish plate you will probably have filling left over)
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 1/2  cups heavy cream or half and half
  • 1 1/2 cups diced ham
  • 1 cup chopped broccoli florets (pre-cooked to crisp-tender)
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar (I used Colby jack and it was super yummy)
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 f.  Line pie dish with crust and prebake for 10 minutes.
  2. In large mixing bowl, whisk eggs and cream together.  Add remaining ingredients.  Combine well.
  3. Pour egg mixture into prebaked pie crust.
  4. Reduce oven to 350 f.  Bake quiche about 45 to 55 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Notes

  • Use heavy cream for a more decadent quiche.
  • You need to use a deep dish pie crust to fit all the filling into 1 pie, so depending on the depth of your pie plate, you may not be able to fit all of the egg mixture into your crust.  (Most store-bought crusts that comes in a throw-away tin are not deep dish.  If you don’t have a big enough deep dish pie plate, just use 2 regular pie plates.)

  1. Can you use chopped frozen broccoli?

  2. Mary Behan says:

    Easy and delicious! I typically have more than can fit in pie crust so I put the extra in muffin tin and make muffins for breakfast!

  3. My husband said I could sell it, it was that good! Thanks I followed it as you wrote it!

  4. Delicious! Family loved it! This recipe is easier than another recipe I’ve made, so this will become my go-to quiche! I made two and made my own crusts so I was sure to have a deep enough shell and still had to leave out some liquid from the one I put in the tart dish. It was only a ladle full, so no biggie. Thanks for a beautiful looking, delicious tasting, and easy to make quiche!

    1. Patti Keefe says:

      This quiche was a big hit for brunch! Followed recipe as written.

  5. Jessica Cameron says:

    Could you make this without crust?

    1. Of course. The directions are the same, just omit the crust. You will want to use something non stick or greased really well. I love a springform pan for crustless stuff.

  6. You said nothing if blind baking the crust. I should have known, but 10 minutes. I thought okay. Wrong. Crust curled down. I see you have a bought crust. I made a very good crust. Luckily, this quiche was not for an event. Your directions are scanty. Can’t believe no one remarked about this.

  7. Can you make this without a pie dish?

    1. Sure, any type of casserole dish would work. It just might be more difficult to slice and serve.

  8. Catherine Hernandez says:

    I made this recipe and they turned out perfect.Thank you for sharing your recipe.I will always make my
    quiche this way.Delicous comfort food.

  9. we made this for the first time, very easy, although the recipe says 1 1/2 heavy cream, is that supposed to say “1 1/2 cups of heavy cream”?

    after 45 minutes at 350 degrees, it’s very watery

  10. I made this yesterday for brunch. Everyone loved it. I steamed the broccoli, used Swiss Gruyere cheese, and added a little bit of onion powder too. With the extra mixture, I put into a small baking dish and baked it along with the quiche. I increased the heat to 375 for my oven and it baked in about an hour to perfection. Definitely will be making again.
