Ingredients

Scale
  • 19 inch pie crust
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 and ½ cups whole milk
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ⅛ tsp. black pepper
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheeese
  • 3 oz. chopped cooked ham
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped chives for optional garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Remove pie crust from refrigerator. If store-bought, soften according to package instructions.
  3. Crack eggs into a medium bowl. Whisk with a fork until no clear streaks of egg whites remain.
  4. Add milk, salt and pepper. Stir until fully combined.
  5. Put pie crust into a 9-inch pie plate.
  6. Sprinkle pie crust with cheese. Top with ham.
  7. Pour egg mixture over cheese and ham.
  8. Bake quiche on the lowest rack of the oven until it is mostly set but slightly jiggly in the middle, 35-45 minutes. If the pastry is browning too much around the top, cover it with aluminum foil like this.
  9. Let quiche cool to a warm temperature before slicing and serving.
  10. Or allow it to cool completely and then cover and refrigerate.
  11. Reheat quiche by covering with aluminum foil and baking at 325°F until warmed through, about 15 minutes. Or slice it and microwave slices individually on the defrost setting for 30 seconds at a time until heated through.
