Serrano & Manchego Quiche Recipe – delicious quiche filled with serrano ham and manchego cheese (Spanish ham and cheese) – great flavors. Perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Can make ahead and freeze unbaked.
I first discovered the flavors in this quiche when I went to cooking school last year. The chefs grilled a piece of Manchego cheese wrapped in serrano ham and it was fabulous! They served it on a salad with homemade buttermilk ranch dressing (recipe here). I have been incorporating serrano ham and manchego cheese into our meals. We’ve made some quick paninis, and I made some Serrano and Manchego Pinwheels earlier this year.
Chicken Legs requested a quiche for breakfast last weekend. I had some serrano ham in the freezer and decided to use it for the quiche. This quiche is not diet food by any means. It has 8 eggs and 1 1/2 cups of heavy cream. (Oh my!) That being said, the quiche was fabulous. It was super creamy and delicious!
I found the serrano ham at Sam’s. I have also seen it at World Market. Manchego cheese is in the deli area at the grocery store. Give this quiche a try if you are looking for an international flare to your next breakfast (or dinner).
