Easy Ham & Cheese Quiche Recipe | Holiday Brunch

December is finally upon us!
Tis the season for friends, family and of course, delicious food :)
We threw a festive holiday brunch for our family this past weekend, and this easy ham & cheese quiche was a big hit! 

This was literally my first time ever making a quiche (admittedly, I'm lacking the Betty Crocker gene) and I was surprised at how easy this was to make, not to mention, really tasty! 

(serves 8)
1 (9 inch) refrigerated pie crust, softened as directed on box
2 tbsp butter
1/4 onion, minced
1 tsp garlic, minced
1 cup half and half
4 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups diced cooked ham
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (4 oz)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp paprika

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Press pie crust into 9 inch pie plate and flute edges, set aside.
  3. Melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat. Saute onion and garlic in melted butter until translucent, about 5 min.
  4. Stir ham into onion mixture and transfer into pie crust.
  5. Beat cheddar cheese, eggs, half and half, salt, and pepper together in a bowl; pour over ham. mixture. Sprinkle paprika over entire quiche.
  6. Bake in preheated oven about 30-45 minutes, or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.

As a side note, I actually made our quiche the night before our party and refrigerated it, covered, overnight. The morning of the brunch I simply covered the quiche with foil and reheated it for about 30 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven.
I hope that ya'll will enjoy this recipe as much as we did!

  4. It has been a while since the last time I tried an unusual yet delicious food. Based on its name, I can feel that Italian eggplant relating is attractive. Though the procedure of coking might look a bit worrying, coming up with a delicious recipe will always need time and effort of course. The teaching is easy to follow, it's the progression that makes it challenging since there are several materials that you need to do! But still, I believe that cooking Italian eggplant relating will be worth it!
