Smoked Ham Pie - Swedish Quiche (Skinkpaj)

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by diner524

Another Swedish recipe that I am posting for ZWT6. On Herrgårdsost Herrgårdsost is a semi-hard yellow cheese made from cow's milk with a mild nuttiness similar to Gruyere or aged cheddar. It has a few small holes (like Swiss cheese does) and is produced in large wheels coated with yellow wax. The name means "manor house cheese."

Not having any pie crust on hand plus no desire to MAKE any, I made a crustless quiche. Besides, it's all about the filling, right? DH commented that there was too much nutmeg. He's probably right but I adore the stuff so it didn't bother me. WOW, 6 YOLKS! This is a very rich dish but very tasty. Very easy to put together. It wasn't cooked in the time given so I cooked it about 10 minutes longer. It was just barely set although cooked through so we just ATE! Made for ZWT9, Mike & the Appliance Killers! :)
