Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup frozen, chopped spinach
  • 1 cup diced ham
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 deep dish frozen pie shell uncooked
  • salt to taste
  • ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven at 350F.

  2. Crack eggs and place in a large mixing bowl with heaving whipping cream.

  3. Whisk the eggs and heavy cream together until well combined and then add in the cheese, salt, pepper and spinach.

  4. Give the egg mixture a good stir and set aside.

  5. Place about 12 slices of ham on a cutting board and trim away any fat. Slice the ham into strips and then cut each strip, dicing the ham until you have 1 cup full. 

  6. Place the ham into the egg mixture and stir again. 

  7. Pour the mixture into a frozen, deep dish pie shell and then place a pie saver over the top of the crust to prevent it from burning. If you don't have a pie saver, you can cut foil into strips and fold over the top of the crust.

  8. Place pie in the oven and bake at 350F for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

  9. Once the pie is cooked, remove from the oven and allow to cool before cutting.

Recipe Notes

Cooked, crumbled bacon or Canadian Bacon can be used in place of the ham or meat can be omitted all together to create a meatless Quiche. Any type of shredded cheese can be used in this recipe. 1% milk, 2% milk, 0% fat free milk, evaporated milk, or half and half cream can be subbed for the heavy whipping cream. Almond or cashew milk can also be subbed in for the cream or milk.
