  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 14 teaspoon salt
  • 18 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 dash cayenne pepper (optional)

  2. Combine ham, cheese and onions or dill and place in pie shell.
  3. Beat eggs, milk, salt, pepper, and cayenne until frothy and pour over ham mixture.
  4. Bake in preheated 375 degree oven for 45-50 minutes, until set and golden brown.

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.
