Served with a tossed salad, this recipe for Quiche will sure to be a hit. If you prefer Swiss cheese or bacon or whatever sounds tasty, just substitute, you can't go wrong. You find this is a very versatile recipe!
Ham and Cheddar Quiche
Serves 6
1 pre-made uncooked pie shell
3 large eggs
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup milk
1 cup diced deli style ham
1 cup grated cheddar cheese

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees, use a fork to prick the bottom of the shell a half dozen times and par-bake the empty shell in the oven, when the oven's ready, for 8-10 minutes. In a large mixing bowl, use a whisk to whip the eggs, cream and milk. Then add the diced ham and grated cheddar cheese and mix that up. Pull the par-baked shell out of the oven, place it on a baking tray, pour the custard into the shell and carefully place the sheet tray back into the oven. It’ll take about 40 - 45 minutes to bake and it's not a bad idea to spin it around once, while it's baking, because ovens tend to have hot spots. When its firm and lightly browned on top, take it out of the oven, let it rest for 15 minutes or so to firm up, and it's ready to slice and serve.

The possibilities for quiche fillings are endless, just make sure the things you use are pre-cooked, or partialy cooked, and not saturated with water.
