Make-Ahead Ham and Cheese Quiche
This Make-Ahead Ham and Cheese Quiche can be pulled together the night before you need it and customized to your tastes by simply adding your favorite ingredients. Our favorite version includes deli ham, mozzarella AND cheddar cheese, eggs, and whipping cream.
Servings: 8 servings
- 1 lb. deli ham
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1 cup shredded cheddar or Colby jack cheese
- 4 eggs
- 8 oz. whipping cream
- 1 frozen deep dish pie crust
Lightly beat eggs and whipping cream until yolks are blended into cream; add ham and cheese and mix well.
Cover in a bowl and refrigerate overnight.
Pour into pie crust.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 40 minutes or lightly golden brown.
Let set up in pie crust for a minimum of 10 minutes. Serve hot or at room temperature.
- If you're using leftover holiday ham, use 2 - 3 cups of chunked ham (or whatever you have to use up).
- If you like your eggs more set up, consider covering with foil and adding additional time to the cook time.
Customize this quiche to your liking: add green onions and pepper, or bacon, sausage or ham.
Try shelf stable whipping cream! It comes in half pint sized containers, and you can pull them out for this recipe or if you have a hankering for whipped cream for your hot chocolate. That way, you don't have to worry about it going bad in the refrigerator.
Be sure to use the deep dish pie crust! You will need the extra space for all the cheesy egg goodness!
