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.)
