This great quiche recipe is from The Collector's Cookbook (tear-out) of Woman's Day magazine, April 1975 edition. It is a great way to use leftover ham, and makes an easy brunch dish.
- 1 (9 -10 inch) deep dish pie shells (unbaked)
- 1 1⁄4 cups minced cooked ham (packed into the measuring cup)
- 1 cup swiss cheese, shredded (packed into the measuring cup)
- 2 -4 tablespoons minced onions (or fresh dill)
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon pepper
- 1 dash cayenne pepper (optional)
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Combine ham, cheese and onions or dill and place in pie shell.
- Beat eggs, milk, salt, pepper, and cayenne until frothy and pour over ham mixture.
- Bake in preheated 375 degree oven for 45-50 minutes, until set and golden brown.
- Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
- Makes 8 servings.
Yummy! This was a very tasty dish, but loved how versatile this recipe really could be. You could really through in any kind of cheese or veggies or sausage, etc. I loved it the way it was though. It was very easy to through together, the hardest part was waiting for it to cook! :) Thanks for posting! Made for Photo Tag.
This was quite delicious ~ I like to try different quiche-type recipes as I find them very convenient. This was a FAMILY PLEASER ! I used the minced onion and skipped the dill and added a couple dashes of cayenne! Wonderful ~ thanks KuW for another great new idea! Made for PAC FALL 2009!
Made this for breakfast this morning and really enjoyed it. Swiss cheese instead of cheddar is a nice change of pace. You could do so much with this recipe. I would like to try it with sausage and pepper jack cheese. And maybe toss in some broccoli. Very adaptable.
