I've seen several posts recently about quiche recipes so thought I would jump in and share mine. I actually got this from my friend Kathleen several years ago when we were giving a bridal brunch together. It is one of our favorite dishes now and I have often prepared it for Christmas morning.
This is what you'll need….just simple ingredients, nothing fancy:
And here is the recipe…
8 oz. cream cheese
½ cup milk
½ tsp. dry mustard
1 cup chopped ham*
5 green onions, chopped*
*I use packaged ham from the lunch meat section; it comes in tiny cubes & does wonderfully in this recipe
*I don't use this much onion as we are not much of an onion family!
*I use a deep dish pie shell so there won't be runover in the oven
Perforate the pie crust a few times with a fork. Spread the ham & onion in the shell and bake @350 for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile combine cream cheese, eggs, milk, & mustard & blend with electric mixer.
Add this to the pie shell.
Here it's all ready to go back in the oven. Yes, that's a pitiful looking old pan it's sitting on but I use it when I have concerns about a dish getting over stimulated in the oven and running over the sides of the dish.
Continue to bake @350 for 40-50 more minutes or until the quiche is set.
And here is the finished product…
The recipe says it makes 8 servings but we like BIG pieces so if there were 8 people somebody would be going hungry!
We will eat it with these for a quick & simple yet yummy meal.
Have you heard that saying ...
Real men don't eat quiche ?
Well, I beg to differ….
This is about as real as it gets in the man department and he's definitely eating quiche. In fact, when I told him what we were having for supper he said, "And what are you going to eat?" Sorry, sweetie, but you do have to share!
OK…enough talking about it, now I'm off to enjoy the fruits of my quiche labor. Where's my fork?
