This pan of quiche may not look as good as it tastes here due to my blurry picture, but trust me, it is delicious. This dish is wonderful for brunch, lunch, or supper and pretty on the plate with some asparagus spears and fresh fruit. It is just as good with bacon subbed for the ham. If you, manage to have any leftover slices can be reheated in the microwave but I prefer to reheat in the oven. The crust stays crispier.
6 ounces grated Swiss cheese
2 Tablespoons flour
1 1/2 cups half and half cream
4 eggs, slightly beaten
8 slices thinly sliced ham from the Deli, chopped or 1 1/2 cups leftover baked ham, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 unbaked 9 inch pie shell (I use Pillsbury refrigerated crust or make my own)
nutmeg, for sprinkling on top of quiche
Toss grated cheese with flour. Add cream, eggs, ham, and seasoning; mix well. Pour into pie crust, dust lightly with nutmeg, and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until set. Serves 8. Substituting crumbled bacon (8 cooked slices) for the ham works well.
