Howdy –

Man, it gets crazy during the holidays, doesn’t it?  Actually, it’s crazy nearly all the time around here, and with 4 men to feed, it seems I’m always cooking!  Over the years, I’ve found there are a few things that my guys especially like having in the fridge, and QUICHE is one of them.  They can slice off a piece (ok, a hunk), heat it in the microwave and out the door they go to feed cows or work calves or burn pastures….whatev.  And Mom is happy because all the food groups are covered within that one piece of quiche. #MomScore 🙂

Easy Recipe Tips for Making Great Quiche

1. Great quiches are easy to throw together and such a fabulous way to use up leftover cooked meats.  This one features leftover Thanksgiving ham that I packaged into 1-2 cup portions (and into freezer bags) and froze for use later on, knowing that quiche would be one of the first recipes I’d use it for. And speaking of the Thanksgiving HAM – don’t you need that recipe, too? I love to cook holiday ham in my 8 Quart Instant Pot in just minutes….so awesome.

2. When you’re making quiche, you can actually use nearly ANY cooked, leftover meat, such as ham, sausage, bacon, ground beef, salmon, or even cooked shredded chicken or turkey.  And, I often use a combination of these meats in my quiche recipes – such as sausage and bacon, or ground beef and sausage – the sky is the limit, truly.

3. And please don’t feel obligated to use homemade pastry crust when you make quiche!  I do love making my own big-batch of homemade pie crusts so I can stock my freezer, but it’s definitely not a deal breaker.  I try to keep a couple boxes of store-purchased pie crusts in my freezer at all times, and I’d say the majority of those are used for making quiche!

Deep Dish Ham and Broccoli Quiche

Breakfast quiche makes a great meal....anytime of day. It's easy to reheat a slice in the microwave when you get hungry and there are so many ingredient combinations you can create. Quiche is always a great way to use up leftover cooked meats....ham, sausage, bacon, even chicken and ground beef. 

Course Breakfast/Brunch
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 deep dish pie crust, store purchased is fine or make your own
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream (may substitute half and half but your quiche won't be as decadent)
  • 1 - 1 1/2 cups diced ham
  • 1 cup frozen chopped broccoli florets, thawed
  • 1 - 1 1/2 cups sharp shredded cheddar
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. Place the pie crust into a deep dish pie plate, pricking the bottom and sides all over with a fork. Press the edges of the pie crust just over the edge of the pie plate and seal by pressing your fingers together (this helps the pie crust not be able to shrink back when baked.)
  3. Bake pie crust on center oven rack, uncovered, for 10 minutes.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, whisk eggs and cream together; stir in remaining ingredients and combine well. Pour egg mixture into pre-baked pie crust.

  5. Reduce oven temperature to 350 F. Bake quiche, uncovered, on center oven rack 40-45 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center of the quiche comes out clean. Let cool 5 minutes before slicing into pieces.
