Ham & Swiss Quiche

I make this often and it always is a hit. I switch it up but using all cheddar cheese or half swiss, half cheddar. I also have added green pepper. Great for breakfast, dinner with a salad or just a snack.


QUICHE - HAM AND SWISS CHEESE
5 eggs
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 lb. Swiss cheese, cubed
1 c. milk
Dash nutmeg
1 (9 inch) pie crust
1/2 lb. ham, cubed
Line pie pan with crust. Fill it with the ham and cheese, alternating layers. (This can be done ahead and refrigerated.) When ready to bake, mix together remaining ingredients and pour into crust. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 45 minutes or until knife inserted into center of quiche comes out clean. Serves 6-8.


I personally do not add the nutmeg only because I am not a fan of it in anything.

Looks great. Have you tried adding chopped asparagus or diced mushrooms to it to try something different?

Saute the mushrooms first! The variations on quiche could fill volumes. I had a quiche business a number of years ago and responded to all sorts of different additions. Keep is simple, just a few ingredients and you'll always have a tasty product.

sattie, try it. It is so simple to make and just have on hand. You can get up, slice a piece, pop it in the microwave and you have breakfast. Let me know if you make one.

Yes, I buy the ready-made, Pillsbury. I am not a big fan of swiss, so I mix swiss with cheddar.
