Simple & Delicious Quiche Recipe

I've been meaning to do this post (and others) for days but I've been swamped with work since the weekend.  Ah well, c'est la vie!

Since we're going to have all sorts of eggs (from blowing them out for our Easter Eggs) and a nice long lazy weekend ahead of us, I thought I'd share a simple delicious quiche recipe I found last year.  It saves time by using an unbaked pie crust that you can find in the freezer section of the grocery store and I love that it's such a great base that you can replace the type of cheese with whatever you have on hand and then throw in whatever veggies/meat that you feel like!

Also, if you want to make one (or a few!) ahead of time, after steps 1) & 2) you can wrap the quiche in plastic wrap (make sure to overlap the sides of the quiche) and then wrap it again in a piece of foil and seal it well around the edges.  The plastic keeps the foil from sticking to it. Place the prepared quiche in the freezer until you're ready to eat it and then bake from frozen as outlined in the instructions below.

Here's the basic recipe:

1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
4 teaspoons all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cooked ham, diced
3 eggs
1 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground dry mustard
1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust


1) In a medium bowl, toss 4 teaspoons flour with the grated cheese. Sprinkle mixture into the pie shell. On top of cheese, sprinkle 1/2 cup of diced ham.
2) Combine eggs, milk or cream, and then add salt and mustard powder. Beat until smooth and pour over cheese and ham.
3) When ready to prepare, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C.) Remove foil and plastic wrap. Put foil around edge of crust to protect it. Bake in the preheated oven for 60 minutes, or until filling is set and crust is golden brown.
