Broccoli and Ham Quiche

20161023_191534Quiche is an easy dish that can be made with many different ingredients. That means it is a very versatile meal! For this quiche, I added ham, sharp cheddar and broccoli.

Start by dicing the ham, cubing the cheddar and cutting the broccoli in bite-size bits. You need about 2 cups of broccoli, 1/2 cup ham and 1/2 cup cheddar. You also need half a medium size onion.


To prevent the onion from being undercooked, I panfried the onion until it was slightly transparent. This should take about 5 minutes.


While the onions were cooking, prepare the eggs.

You will need to scramble 4 large eggs with 1 cup of milk. For a creamier quiche, substitute the milk for half and half or cream. Add some salt and pepper and beat the egg mixture.

For the pie crust, I used frozen pie shells. (Yes! they are actually decent.) Prick the pie crust with a fork before putting in the oven. This will prevent bubbles from forming while baking. Bake the pie shell using the direction on the box for the pie shell.



Take the crust out when it just to show signs of it browning.

When the crust is out of the oven, fill the crust with the broccoli, onions, cheese and ham.


Place the pie crust on a tray. This will catch any of the egg when it spills and cooks. Slowly pour the egg mixture in the pie shell and place in the oven. Bake the quiche in a 375 degree Celsius oven for about 1 hour or until the egg is completely cooked.


Take out of the oven and let it rest for about 10 minutes before serving. This allows the egg to settle and solidify, making it easier to cut.


Enjoy this simple and easy meal! Its also great for leftovers at breakfast! Eat it now or eat it later.
