This Easy Ham and Cheese Quiche is a rich and cheesy quiche that can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It’s perfect for using up leftover Easter ham.
I love making quiches. They are versatile, so easy to make, and great for using up leftovers.
If you find yourself with leftover holiday ham, this quiche takes just minutes to prep. I use a frozen pie shell to save time and make a quick pie filling with a little onion, some eggs, half-and-half, cheddar cheese, swiss cheese, and ham. You could use bacon instead of ham if you wanted to.
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 medium yellow onion, chopped
4 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup shredded swiss cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup half-and-half
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 cups diced ham
1 deep dish frozen pie crust
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Melt butter in a small nonstick pan and cook onion until soft. Let cool slightly.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, half-and-half, salt and pepper.
Stir in ham and both cheeses. (I like to leave a small handful of cheese to sprinkle on top.)
Stir in cooked onion.
Pour filling into pie crust, set on a baking sheet and place in oven for 40 to 45 minutes, or until set.
