I love making quiches. They are versatile, so easy to make, and great for using up leftovers.

If you find yourself with leftover holiday ham, this quiche takes just minutes to prep. I use a frozen pie shell to save time and make a quick pie filling with a little onion, some eggs, half-and-half, cheddar cheese, swiss cheese, and ham. You could use bacon instead of ham if you wanted to.

Pour the filling into the pie crust, pop it in the oven and 45 minutes later your quiche is ready.

Tastes great warm from the oven or after being chilled in the refrigerator.

  1. I would like to cook and freeze to take on a long camping trip to be reheated. Would this work or is it only good cooked and served fresh?

  2. I’d like to make this into an egg casserole since some in my family don’t like pie crust (?!) — if I double the recipe, would that work in a 9×13 pan, and for how long do you think it would need to cook?

  3. I used gruyere cheese, cheddar cheese, and added spinach. Really good !! This recipe lends itself to some creativity and it always comes out great.
