This Easy Ham Quiche recipe started with a refrigerated pie crust or you can make your own! It’s filled with ham, cheese, green onions and perfectly seasoned. The perfect breakfast, dinner, or holiday brunch item!

I think maybe you know by now how much we love eggs — for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! This easy ham quiche is right at the top of our list for all 3 😉

I shared this recipe first on Spend With Pennies.

One thing I don’t love? Pie crust.

I know, I know — maybe you think I’m crazy. Who doesn’t love PIE?!?

But give me cake, a cookie, ice cream, a candy bar, or just about anything else, and I will gladly let you have my piece of pie.

So when I’m making a quiche? It’s all about the filling here, which is why this ham quiche recipe uses a premade, refrigerated pie crust, and I’m just not gonna take any flack for it 😉

How to make Ham Quiche:

  • Start with a crust — pie crust (go all out and make your own pie crust if you want), puff pastry quiche, or wonton wrappers for easy mini quiche if you like! — or not. You can totally make this a crustless quiche by just skipping all of the above. Just make sure you grease your pie plate well before pouring your eggs in!
  • Choose good ham. The cooked ham you find at a grocery store varies greatly in quality. I like to go with one of the natural versions that actually has real ingredients in it. Call me crazy. (again)
  • Add your favorite veggies — or not. Mushrooms, peppers, roasted red peppers, caramelized onions, broccoli, spinach or really anything you want or anything you need to clear out of the fridge. Feel free to go a little crazy and come up with your own variations! This here is a basic ham quiche recipe and you’re welcome to jazz it up however you like.

Lighten it up:

Now, I’m all about getting healthy fats and milk, meat, and whole eggs all have a ton of other benefits! But if you need, you can make this quiche a little better for you in a few different ways:

  • Use skim milk instead whole milk or cream. This will reduce fat and calories significantly!
  • Choose a fat free, natural ham if available.
  • Use egg whites instead of whole eggs.
  • Use a low fat cheese instead of full fat.
  • Skip the crust! Bake your quiche filling in a well-greased pie plate until the eggs are set in the middle.

    This is our go-to quiche recipe! I always double up and bake two at the same time. We leave out the salt because our ham is so salty.

    I love this recipe.. I have made this many times.. and also noticed I need to cook at least 1 hour. My question is Iam have a bridal shower and making different ones can I put a couple of them in at a time.

    Turned out great! Few pointers. I had extra egg mixture that would not fit into the 9” pie pan. So, I didn’t add it because it would have overflowed. Also if you bake the crust prior to adding the egg mixture, poke holes in the bottom to let air escape or use pie weights . I put in chopped asparagus and shallots since I didn’t have green onion. I microwaved the asparagus minimally before adding it .I also used skim milk . My cooking time was closer to 60 minutes. I used pie crust edge cover to keep crust from burning. I’d make this again!

    I think someone who commented previously put foil on the whole pie and it stuck. I believe the aluminum foil only goes on the crust edges and not the whole pie.

    I have used this recipe several times. I have added frozen broccoli I cooked in the microwave first for about 5 min. Just added some of it. I also have substituted dried onion. The spring onions are so much better though! I add about 10 minutes to bake time with anything extra I add. Love it!
