Notes

  • 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!
