Ham & Gruyere Quiche


Believe it or not, Chicken Legs is a huge quiche fan.  I haven't made one in a while, so I thought this was the perfect way to use up the last bit of our Easter ham.  This quiche was amazing!  It was light and fluffy and wonderfully creamy.  Chicken Legs said he could have eaten the whole thing himself.  Don't worry - he didn't.  We had some leftover for lunch the next day and it was even better! Chicken Legs has requested that I make two quiches next time so we have plenty of leftovers.





Ham and Gruyere Quiche
(Printable Recipe)

1 9-inch deep dish pie crust
5 oz chopped ham
5 oz gruyere cheese, grated
3 eggs
1/2 cup milk (I used 1%)
1/2 cup sour cream (I used light)
pepper

Preheat oven to 375.

Blind bake the pie crust for 8-9 minutes.  Place chopped ham in bottom of pie crust.  Top with cheese.  Whisk together eggs, milk, sour cream and pepper.  Pour over ham and cheese.  Bake for 40-50 minutes, until center is set and the quiche is lightly browned.  Allow to cool for at least 5 minutes before serving.

  3. I made ham soup, now I will make ham quiche and see if the Ex-Ex likes it! I just happen to have some gruyère in the frigo at home.

    Merci!

  4. I don't know why the whole "real men don't eat quiche" thing even started. It's absurd -- who doesn't love Bacon and Egg Pie !? No one. Looks great!

  9. I could eat just about anything with gruyere in or on it. Except fish.
