Made this a few days ago! While I wouldn’t make it every day, I like surprising my family once in a while with something different. It’s a tradition for us to have a special breakfast on Saturdays. I would usually make crapes, pancakes or cheese pie. But since these are all sweet, Quiche is a perfect variation and it’s not as difficult as it looks.
Here’s my Classic Quiche recipe:
Mix 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/3 cup shortening (I used butter that made the crust less flaky). Add 3 to 4 tablespoons water. Toss with a fork and form dough into a ball. Roll dough into a 12 inch circle and place in a 9 inch pie dish. Prick with a fork, cover with foil and bake at 450° for 5 minutes. Uncover and bake 7 more minutes. Remove from oven and reduce oven temperature to 325°.
Meanwhile prepare the filling.
In a bowl stir together 3 beaten eggs, 1 1/2 cups milk, 1/4 cups green onion, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon pepper, dash nutmeg and 3/4 cups chopped ham. Toss together 1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese with 1 tablespoon all purpose flour and add to egg mixture. Pour into hot pie crust. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Serves 6.
