19-inchpre-baked pie crust
1/2cupMonterey Jack cheese
1/4teaspoondry ground mustard
Fresh chiveschopped, for garnish
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Add ham and cheese to a prebaked pie shell. Be sure to spread evenly over the crust. You want some ham and cheese in every bite.
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, half-n-half, salt, pepper, ground mustard, and onion powder. Pour eggs mixture over ham and cheese.
Bake quiche for 35 to 40 minutes or until crust is browned and eggs are set.
Remove from oven and all to rest for 10 minutes before serving. Garnish with chives, if desired.
For the pie crust, you can use a homemade or store-bought crust. Just be sure to par-bake the crust for 10 to 15 minutes at 450 degrees F. Use foil and pie weights or dried beans to keep the sides of the crust from falling over during baking. You can par-bake your crust the day before to cut down on prep time in the morning.
