  • 1 cup (4 oz.) shredded Swiss cheese, divided
  • 1 cup finely chopped, cooked ham
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 can (12 fl. oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk

PREHEAT oven to 350° F.

SPRINKLE 1/2 cup cheese, ham and green onions into pie shell. Whisk together evaporated milk, eggs, flour, salt and black pepper in large bowl. Pour mixture into pie shell; sprinkle with remaining cheese.

BAKE for 45 to 50 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack for 10 minutes before serving.

VARIATION: For a lattice-top quiche, use ready-made pie pastry for single crust pie. Cut pastry into 1/2-inch-wide strips. Lay pastry strips over filling in lattice-fashion, turning pastry over outside edge of dish. Bake as directed above.

FOR MINI-QUICHE APPETIZERS, use 1 1/2 packages (3 crusts) refrigerated pie crusts. Grease miniature muffin pans. Unfold crust on lightly floured surface. Cut fourteen 2 1/2-inch circles from each crust. Press 1 circle of dough into bottom and up sides of each cup. Repeat with remaining crusts. Combine cheese, ham, green onions, 2/3 cup (5 fl.-oz. can) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk, 2 eggs (lightly beaten), 2 tablespoons flour, salt and black pepper in large bowl; mix well. Spoon mixture into crusts, filling 3/4 full. Bake in preheated 350° F. oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until crusts are golden brown. Cool slightly; lift quiche from cup with tip of knife. Serve warm or cool and freeze for later entertaining. Makes 3 1/2 dozen.

Ham and Swiss cheese quiche

The best and so so easy to make!

- Tracey CAREY from ky

Good and Simple

This quiche was super-easy to make, and pretty tasty, too. Like others had suggested, I used yellow onions instead of green. I also added fresh-grated nutmeg, which was a nice touch. The recipe calls for a deep-dish pie shell (4 qt. volume). I used a standard 9" pie crust and 2 qt. pie dish and it worked out just fine. Bake time of 45 minutes was perfect.

A big hit!

Everyone in my family enjoys this recipe, even the picky eaters. It's a no-fail recipe.

OK...but needs some more flavor

This quiche is just OK. It was a little dry and needs more flavor. I think either a white or yellow onion instead of the green onion may give it more flavor. AND, a little less flour.

Ham & Swiss Quiche

This is my favorite quiche to make! I usually add a little more cheese then the recipe calls for as I love the extra kick it gives. This is my husbands favorite breakfast treat! Another home run VBB!
