Maw's Ham-Cheese Quiche

Maw's Ham-Cheese Quiche

Last night I returned to cooking for my family recipe book.  Hunter was in town for the weekend and I gained a few pounds (at least) from all we ate.  Friday night we even had dinner at Hot and Hot Fish Club.  We've now been to Highlands and Hot and Hot...two on my list thanks to White Plume (who has given me the thank-you dinners).  It is now official.  After 8.5 years I will be leaving my work family to start a new adventure.  It is a wonderful opportunity to put my MBA to use. I hope my new office likes to eat.  Or I will still be delivering goodies to White Plume on a regular basis!
Back to the quiche.  I had some for lunch today and took pictures. I will certainly be making this again! 
Maw's Ham and Cheese Quiche

Serves 6


9" pie crust (I cheated and used the frozen ones...thawed it before using.)
1 1/2 c. grated Swiss Cheese
4 tsp flour
1/2 c. diced ham
3 eggs
1 c. milk
1/4 tsp dry mustard
1/4 tsp salt

I love Maw's recipe cards. What she lacked in handwriting she made up with her script typewriter.
I cheated and used a pie crust. Next time I will use Maw's pie crust recipe!
I honestly left the foil on the entire time. Next time I will not put it on the top rack. Instead, I will be sure it is in the center of the oven.

I was walking the dog when I should have kept it from browning.  Again, I won't put it on the top burner next time.  It still tastes delicious. You can certainly add more ham than 1/2 cup if you choose!

I felt like it was time to sneak in a Brody picture. We ate on the patio. Here he is doing his version of downward dog...he sticks out his tongue. It is my favorite!

  1. Yay for new adventures and putting the MBA to use. I'm going to have to swing by for some of your cooking adventures as I am still terribly un-inspired.
