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.

  1. Super easy and great flavor. I used all cheddar because I forgot to buy the swiss. My husband loved it!

  2. Loved this quiche. I made it for a potluck after church and was hoping to take a piece home – no luck!! It is really packed with ham and cheese.

  3. Just made this. It was so easy and turned out perfect. Made a couple of different ones using the recipe basics. (Just made one plain egg and cheese and one with bacon and no onion) They were delicious. Thanks!!!

  4. My family loves this recipe! I use a 9 inch pie pan and have never had any trouble with it spilling over. So good!

  5. Just wondering. It says one frozen deep dish crust. I cant find that size. Can I use and 8 inch or 9 inch frozen pie crust? Which one would be better? Thanks

      You can use a 9-inch. Depending on the size, all of the filling may or may not fit. Place the pie crust on a rimmed baking sheet when you place it in the oven in case any overflows. Good Luck!

    1. Half and half is in the dairy section of the grocery store. It is in with like the coffee creamers etc. Half and half is the name of it. It is like half milk, half cream mixed together.

  6. This quiche was delicious except it was salty tasting the first time we ate it. I would omit the salt of the recipe the next time I make it. I made this with egg beaters instead of regular eggs and unsweetened almond milk instead of the Half and Half. It was excellent! Copying it for future usage!

  7. Made 2 at once with left over ham. Added red bell pepper from my garden & garlic. Otherwise followed directions & checked for doness with knife. Excellent.

  8. I went easy on the chili flakes, heavy on the parmesan and added fresh spinach. Absolutely delicious!!!

  9. I’ve made this several times and always a hit (work breakfasts, family brunch, etc.) I don’t eat pork so sub honey smoked turkey breast and less onion. I use refrigerated pie crust and works great.

  10. Easy and delicious. I added onion and garlic powders, and 1T. hot sauce to the egg mixture before baking.
