Spinach and Ham Quiche

Spinach and Ham Quiche created by Neonprincess

This is the first quiche I have ever made and it turned out really well. At least my guests thought so, who all went back for seconds. Mind you, they didn’t leave any for me!

Ready In:
50mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 1 sheet shortcrust pastry, to line a 9 inch quiche dish
  • 3 shallots
  • 3 slices ham (about 120g)
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup Baby Spinach, loosely packed and coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 12 cups milk
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 12 cup shredded cheese (whatever type you like, I use cheddar)
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • salt and pepper

directions

  • Preheat oven to 230°C.
  • Chop shallots and ham, and sauté in olive oil with garlic. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  • In a bowl mix the flour with a little milk until a smooth paste forms. Add rest of milk, eggs, paprika, salt and pepper.
  • To the milk mixture, add the sautéed shallots and ham, cheese and spinach. Mix well.
  • Prick the base of the pastry with a fork and gently pour in the filling mixture. Spread out evenly.
  • Bake for 30 minutes. If necessary, cover with foil for the last 10 minutes to prevent over-browning.
  • Remove from oven and leave for 5 minutes before serving.

    I asked Siri to find a spinach and ham quiche recipe and this is the one she came up with! It was really good. Had to adjust the cooking time, though, even at 450 degrees F it wasn't quite done at the 30 minute mark. (to the person who put it at 350, 230 C works out roughly to 450 F!) More like 35-40 minutes cooking time. Had never used flour in a quiche recipe before but I used wondra for this recipe. The quiche had a really nice consistency.

    Confused by the cooking time/temp. Preheated oven and followed everything exactly. Quiche looks beautiful in my oven but I've got mine up to 360 now (40minutes later...) And it's still liquid in the center.

    Neonprincess, you posted a fantastic recipe. I cheated by using a Betty Crocker crust, skipped browning the ham and didn't add the paprika. Even with those changes, it was fantastic. Thank you for posting. Made for Spring 2011 PAC!

    This is really nice. I doubled the recipe to make two and instead of shallots used 1 large red onion. I did find that there was a bit of mix left over? so would watch the amount of milk. Lovely flavour. Thanks for posting.
