It is eggs, meat, cheese, and hidden veggie, shhhh. Some of my husbands favorite food groups. This is a super, very yummy recipe and I even cheated this week and bought a pie crust instead of making one, sigh. It was busy week alright, so don't judge!
Here's what you need:
1 - 9" pie crust, store bought or homemade
5 eggs, at room temperature, I use large or extra large
3/4 cup half and half
1 cup ham, diced, I used my leftover Easter Ham
2 green onion, sliced thinly
1 cup, chopped artichoke hearts, I use canned in water
1/2 cup bell pepper, diced, any color or mix like I did
1 cup Swiss or Gruyere cheese, shredded, I actually found a pre shredded mix at Trader Joe's
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Wash and chop or slice all ingredients and place in a bowl (I used a measuring cup for easy measuring and clean up)
In a medium bowl mix the eggs, 1/2 and 1/2, salt, and pepper until fully incorporated.
Add the cheese, ham, and veggies and stir until incorporated.
Roll out pie crust and place in a 9" pie dish. Pour quiche filling into prepared pie crust and bake for 50 - 60 minutes.
Quiche is done when a knife inserted into the middle comes out clean and the center isn't jiggly.
Allow to sit for about 5 - 10 minutes before serving. May be served hot or at room temperature.
Serves 6 - 8
