Spinach and Ham Quiche {Recipe}

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. While browsing for breakfast dishes that wouldn't take up my whole morning to make, I stumbled upon quiche. I didn't want to stand at the stove for an hour whipping up something delicious while I miss family time. This recipe is really convenient if I assemble the whole thing the night before and just pop it in the oven in the morning. Easy and delicious breakfast served for the whole family. Plus hubby said that this was the best quiche I have ever made (that's something) and I agree.

  • 1 whole Unbaked Pie Crust (I use pre-maid Pillsbury crust)
  • 1 whole Purple Onion, Sliced
  • 1 cup of Spinach (about a handful)
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 8 oz of  Smoked Ham, Diced
  • 5  whole Large Eggs
  • 1/2  cup of  Half-and-Half
  •  Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 1/2  cups Grated Sharp Cheddar Cheese

Preparation Instructions
Fry the onions in the butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat for at least 15 to 20 minutes (maybe longer), stirring occasionally, until the onions are deep golden brown. Add spinach and fry until just wilted then take off the heat. Set aside to cool.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Roll out the pie crust and press it into a fluted deep tart pan (or a deep dish pie pan).
Whip the eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a large bowl, then mix in the onions with spinach, ham, and cheese. Pour the mixture into the pie crust. Place the pan on a rimmed baking sheet, cover lightly with aluminum foil, and bake it for about 30 to 35 minutes. Remove the foil and continue baking for 5 more minutes, or until the quiche is set and the crust is golden brown. (The quiche will still seem slightly loose, but will continue to set once remove from the oven.)
Remove from the oven and allow to sit for 10 to 15 minutes. If using a tart pan, remove the quiche from the pan, cut into slices with a sharp serrated knife, and serve!
