Ham & Cheese Sandwich-Quiche Style

Leftover Ham-A-Rama Recipe #1!
So as you all know I made a HUGE ham on Sunday and am trying to use up every last bit of it.  I love me some good old ham and cheese sandwiches but I wanted to be a bit more creative so I turned my typical ham and cheese sandwich into a ham and cheese quiche that the whole family can enjoy. This recipe is perfect for Breakfast or Dinner. I made mine for dinner last night and also had me a slice for breakfast today! How nice is that! 2 meals out of one dish. Gotta love that! 

1 unbaked Pie Crust (I homemade mine click here for recipe)
1 1/2 cup Ham (chopped into small bite size pieces)
1/4 cup Onion (minced)
2 cups Cheddar Cheese (shredded)
5 Eggs 
2 cups of Heavy Cream (or whole milk)
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Sugar

Preheat the oven to *425.  Sprinkle the ham, onion, and shredded cheese into the bottom of the pie crust.  In a large bowl,  mix together the eggs, cream, salt, and sugar.  Pour the egg mixture over the ham in the pie crust.  Place the quiche in the oven and bake for 15 minutes.

Next, turn the temperature on the oven to *300. Place a pie shield over the edges of the crust to avoid burning, and return the quiche back into the oven and bake for another 30-35 minutes.  The quiche is done when a knife, stuck into the center comes out clean. 


  1. Ham-a-rama..LOL. Love that! I adore quiche. It is definitely a comfort food for me - this one sounds so good!

  2. Yum! I love quiche and this is a very creative use of the ham! One of my favorite ham dishes is "ham and scalloped potatoes". I ate that all the time when I was growing up!
