Splendid Ham Quiche

It’s the weekend after Thanksgiving and something we have plenty of is leftovers. At our house we prefer ham to turkey for most holiday meals. So, we have an abundance of leftover ham. I decided to use up some of that ham in a ham and cheese quiche. I thought I would make this dish and share it with others who might be looking for a way to use up Thanksgiving leftovers.
This dish is super easy to throw together and pop in the oven.

Splendid Ham Quiche


1 (9-inch deep dish) pie crust, store bought or homemade
3 eggs
1/2 cup whole milk
1 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup diced ham
1 6.5 oz. can of mushrooms
4 cleaned, washed and chopped green onions
1/4 teaspoon each salt, pepper


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.

Spray your pie plate and lay out your pie crust. Poke holes with a fork. 

In a medium bowl, whisk eggs. Stir in remaining ingredients and pour over pie crust, filling to the top.

I laid some additional leftover Swiss and pepper jack cheese slices on top.
Bake for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 325 degrees F, and continue baking for another 40 minutes.
Remove from oven and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.

I garnished mine with picked jalapeno rings. They add a little spice.
This dish will also freeze nicely, in individual slices so it can be taken to work for lunch.

Now to get back to some online Christmas present shopping!
