Easter Ham is great, a nice spiral cut, honey glazed. What to do with the leftovers? Here’s one idea Ham quiche. I took a quarter section of my flaky dough recipe ( see Key Lime Pie for the recipe) for the pie crust, it makes absolutely the best quiche crust ever.
Ingredients for Ham Quiche
- 1 part Flaky Pie Crust
- 1 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese
- 1 cup diced Ham
- 2-3 Scallions (White part) finely sliced
- 1 tsp fresh grated ginger
- 3 eggs
- 1¼ cups Cream
- Salt & Pepper to taste
Directions for making Ham Quiche
Preheat oven to 350°
Take the pie crust, roll out and place in 9 inch pie pan. Place aluminum foil over crust and weigh down with pie weights or beans and blind bake for about 20 minutes, remove from oven and remove weights and foil and place back in oven and bake an additional 10 minutes. Remove and let cool.
When cool place the cheddar in bottom of the pie crust, place the ham on top of that. In a separate bowl place the eggs, cream, ginger, scallions, salt and pepper and whisk completely. Pour on top of cheese and ham and bake in oven for about 40 -45 minutes until center is slightly firm and jiggles only slightly. Remove from oven and let cool slightly and set up.
Serve warm with sour cream.
