Ingredients

  • 1 Refrigerated Pie Crust
  • 6 large eggs
  • 10 oz frozen chopped spinach (thawed)
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup Cooked Ham (diced)
  • 1 1/2 cup cheddar cheese (shredded)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Place the pie crust in a 9 inch pie pan and crimp the edges of your pie crust. Weigh down the center of the pie crust with either pie weights or dry beans so that the crust  doesn't puff up in the center as it bakes. Bake the pie crust for 13-15 minutes until the edges are lightly golden brown. Remove the crust and discard the beans.
  • Place your spinach in a colander and squeeze out as much of the water as possible.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, cream, salt and pepper.
  • Scatter the spinach out on the bottom of the crust.  Top the spinach with the ham and 1 cup of the shredded cheese.
  • Pour the egg mixture on top of these ingredients in the pie crust. 
  • Place quiche on a baking sheet and bake for 40-50 minutes until the center is completely set.  Let the quiche cool for 5-10 minutes to set and then it’s ready to slice and serve.

Notes

This is a great base easy quiche recipe.  You can use any type of protein that you prefer.  Sausage or bacon would also be delicious in the recipe. Also, you can use your favorite type of melting cheese.  Gruyere, white cheddar or mozzarella would all be delicious in this quiche recipe. 
*Make sure the quiche has cooled completely at room temperature before refrigerating leftovers. The leftovers should be good for up to 5 days in an airtight container.
