Ham and Vegetable Quiche

Recipe Information
a simple and quick recipe



  • 1 unbaked deepdish pastry shell
  • 1 cup (225 ml) diced ham
  • 1 cup (225 ml) chopped broccoli pieces
  • 1 cup (225 ml) chopped cauliflour
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 cup (225 ml) or more grated Swiss cheese (I prefer Colby Jack or a blend. You can also use cheddar.)
  • 3 eggs
  • (these amounts may vary depending on the size of your shell, you made need to use more of less..)
  • Place pastry in a 350 degree (175 C.) oven for about 10 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let cool while you dice and chop filling ingredients.
  • Mix or layer the ham, broccoli, cauliflour, and onions in the pie shell.
  • Cover the top with a healthy helping of cheese. Make sure the top is covered and heaped.
  • Mix the three eggs until blended, then pour slowly over the top of the cheese.
  • Place quiche in 400 degree (200 C.) oven for 15 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to 325 degrees (175 C.) and continue baking for 45 minutes.
  • Let quiche stand for 5 minutes before cutting.
This is a simple quiche and it can be changed to fit your moods easily. It is good served with a nice green salad. The trick is to make sure you put plenty of cheese on top, as this will be a top crust when the quiche is done.
