Ham and spinach quiche

>> Sunday, December 27, 2009

For Christmas morning, my family enjoyed a nice little brunch before heading out to our extended family's crazy family party (I'm talking a wild party!).  I made quiche which is an old standby for the family which my mom used to make all the time when my brothers and sister and I were growing up. Quiche is so simple to make and very filling when you fill the pie with vegitables and meat. I like spinach and ham best.
To make quiche you need (per quiche):

Pie crust (either homemade or store bought)
3 large eggs
1 pint heavy cream
1 cup chopped spinach
1 cup cubed ham
Chopped seasoning vegitables: onions, bell peppers, celery, etc.
1 package finely shredded mozzerella cheese

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, crack the eggs. Before you break the yolk, dip a pastry brush in the egg white and brush the edges of your pie crust. Break the eggs apart and add in chopped spinach, ham, seasoning vegetables, cheese and heavy cream. Add salt and pepper, mix thoroughly and pour into the pie crust. Bake for 40 - 50 minutes (longer if you have more than one pie), until golden brown on top and knife clean.

Remove from oven and let cool for 15 minutes. Enjoy!
