Ham and Cheese Quiche

Nothing is as lovely as pulling a lovely quiche out of the oven for dinner. I like this recipe because I always have the ingredients on hand (or easy substitutions). You can make it with any meat/cheese combo you have -- bacon and artisan cheese is a lovely combo as well.

1 partially baked deep-dish pie crust
1 small can Hormel ham, drained and shredded
4 large eggs
1 1/3 cups milk (I used fat-free)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp nutmeg (optional)
1 1/4 cups (6 oz.) grated Swiss cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake empty pie shell for 10 min. Place pie shell on cookie sheet. Reset oven to 425 degrees. Sprinkle ham over the bottom of the pie shell. Combine the eggs, milk and spices in a bowl and beat to mix thoroughly. Sprinkle the cheese over the ham and ladle the custard over all. Bake for 15 minutes at 425; then lower the heat to 350 degrees and bake for 25-30 min more, or until knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Serves 6.

Serve with a nice green salad or fruit cup. The leftovers (if you have any) heat in the microwave for a nice breakfast or lunch the next day.

Happy eating!
