When I finally acquired a pie dish this recipe was the first thing on my mind. It’s very simple and is one of the only ways I will eat eggs.
- 3 eggs
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup of shredded Cheddar cheese
- 1 cup of chopped cooked ham (or bacon)
- 1 unbaked 9 inch pie shell
Put the pie shell into the pie dish. I just use a pre-made one since I don’t eat crust. Sprinkle the in the cheese and put the meat on top of it. You can substitute bacon for the ham, but if you do be sure to leave out the salt. Beat the eggs, milk, salt and pepper together and pour over the ham and cheese. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting and serving. Substituting bacon makes the quiche a bit thinner, meaning you can probably cut down the bake time by a few minutes. Ideally the quiche should be a fairly moist and not at all brown on the top.
