So I realized that, in spite of my love for puff pastry and all the things it can do, I don’t have any recipes using puff pastry on the blog.

Until today.

I love developing recipes. I love coming up with new combinations, and dreaming up totally over the top sweet treats. And sometimes I think I get a little carried away on the sweet side of things, since it’s not those recipes that we’re making and eating every day (well, I hope not, anyway!).

When I asked my Facebook group whether they go for sweet or savory breakfast recipes, the results were overwhelmingly savory! Based on the popularity of my Loaded Baked Potato Quiche and Mini Wonton Quiche, I knew then that I had to do some rearranging of my plans and include one more savory brunch recipe before Mother’s Day.

This quiche looks impressive, but it’s easy enough for those men (and older kiddos!) who maybe don’t feel like whipping up pastry from scratch to impress their lady. Simply press the pastry into the pie plate, fill with your favorite toppings (feel free to mix things up!), top with the egg mixture, and bake! It doesn’t get any easier!

    I have just made it and it was absolutely yummy. I added halved baby tomatoes and quartered pieces of zucchini. Yum, yum, yum. Thank you. πŸ™‚

    This was a fantastic and easy ‘fancy’ breakfast for our Sunday morning! My oven tends to undercook things so I followed some other reviews. I stabbed the pastry with a fork, put a smaller pie plate on top to weigh it down, and just prebaked for 5 minutes while I whipped up the eggs. I also drained and patted the ham dry a little bit. And for some extra punch I added a few dashes of dry mustard. Will be saving this recipe for sure!

    We just had this for dinner. Delicious. Not too dense. Our crust was good, just a little wet at the very center.

  4. Debbie Timbie says

    I tried this, and it turned out really yummy. I did precook the crust for 8 minutes, and also added some frozen spinach (thawed and squeezed), and sauteed mushrooms. I highly recommend!

  5. Jeanine says

    Tried it but the puff pastry base was completely doughy and raw even after 40 minutes in the oven.

    Can’t be right??!

    • Mike glover says

      You should cook your pastry for about 8 minutes before adding any of the filling. I poke holes in the bottom of the pastry with a fork and then weigh it down so it doesn’t rise unevenly. Also brush with egg wash over entire crust before initial baking.

  6. Erika says

    I made this as directed, filling was delicious but the base of the puff pastry crust was raw. Recommend increasing temperature to 400.

    This looks delicious! I don’t think you can beat a good quiche – might have to make one this weekend!

  8. Rachel @ Bakerita says

    Ham and cheese is such a delicious classic combo and I LOVE that you used puffed pastry for the crust! So easy and so so delicious. This is too perfect for Mother’s Day πŸ™‚

  9. marcie says

    This was a terrific idea using puff pastry for a quiche, and I think it looks so much better than regular pie crust! This looks insanely delicious, Ashley, and thank you for linking up to my crustless quiche! (p.s. I LOVE your haircut!) πŸ™‚

  10. Medha says

    I loooove using premade puff pastry! It makes so many dishes so much more impressive and fancy, without much work at all! πŸ™‚

    • Ashley Fehr says

      Same!! I will tolerate it, if pie is dessert and I don’t have any other options. But I am not one of those crazy people who loooooooves pie crust! This is WAY better in my opinion! Thanks Julie πŸ™‚

    Hi Ashley! I always have puff pastry in the freezer, it has so many uses! I also happen to have ham in there also and I would add fresh asparagus (steamed), Sounds like a plan for brunch this weekend!
