Ham and Cheese Quiche is easy to make, great for brunch, lunch or a light dinner. A great way to use up leftovers.
Quiche is one of my favorite things to eat. A buttery crust. Lots of cheese, some ham. Throw in whatever’s in the crisper drawer-onion, bell bepper, broccoli. Some spices, eggs and cream.
You can cheat and use a store bought crust. I won’t judge, but making your own is easy.
Just flour, salt, cold butter and cold water.
Stir together your flour and salt in a large bowl. Use a pastry blender or 2 knives and cut the butter into the flour mixture. Add the cold water until your dough sticks together. Wrap it in plastic wrap and chill for an hour before rolling out.
You want to blind bake (bake with no filling) your crust before filling. You can use pie weights or rice, or beans, but I’ve fould just a thick layer of foil works well. I fold my foil over 3 times, then press it into my crust to hold the shape. Bake as directed then remove the foil and fill.
I go for lots of cheese.
Bake until top starts to golden
Then let it cool for 30 minutes (or longer) before slicing.
