Ingredients:

  • 1 unbaked 9-inch (4-cup volume) deep-dish pie shell
  • 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
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

Directions:

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

    Tracey CAREY from ky

    The best and so so easy to make!

  •  Star(s)

    Good and Simple

    Chrissy Symes from United States

    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!

    Dawn Bilyeu from Tulsa, OK

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

    OK...but needs some more flavor

    Cynthia Peterson from Yucaipa, CA

    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.

    This is my first attempt at making quiche. I made my pie crust from scratch. The quiche recipe was easy and delicious. I have never used Carnation Evaporated Milk before for baking and will certainly try more recipes using this product.

    Nice and hearty brunch item. I added some sauteed chopped mushrooms the second time I made the recipe. Just be sure the mushrooms have been cooked enough not to ooze juice.

    easy and delicious

    Rachel Iovino from Brooklyn, NY

    This is a great recipe. I've made other quiche recipes but this one is the best. I think the evaporated milk is the key ingredient. Other recipes call for regular milk or heavy cream and i dont think the quiche sets as well as it does here. Its a must try you'll love it.

    Ham & Swiss Quiche

    Mrs. Monica Duguid from Stittsville, ON

    For those who would like something a little different, replace Swiss cheese with 3 cheese medley, substitute bacon bits (store bought)for ham and add 3-4tsp sweet pepper (green, red or yellow or combination)chopped into small pieces. The one ingredient I found missing from the traditional quiche offered here is nutmeg---to taste. I add 1/8 tsp freshly grated nutmeg and it makes a difference.

    Fantastic recipe!

    Angel Schmitz from Laurel, MD

    I needed a quick, hot breakfast for my overnight guests...and this fit the bill! I doubled the recipe, using two pie crusts in a 9 x 13 pan. Easy, tasty...I added tri-coloured pepper rings on the top. Thanks for an easy breakfast idea!

    Ham & Swiss Quiche

    Bida Bock from PARADISE, CA

    This was a fast and easy recipe. I wanted to use up all my leftover Christmas Ham so I used two cups of Ham instead of one, put in an extra egg and small amount of extra flour. It was a good thing I put the pie on a jelly roll pan because that extra egg came right out.Yummy Quiche , the extra Ham was great.Awesome leftovers next time I will make two and freeze one.

    Excellent Meal

    ellen ward from HURLEYVILLE, NY

    I just made this recipe and can't believe how quick and easy it was. I did substitute 3/4 cup of drained frozen spinach for 1 cup of green onion. As I type this, the aroma in my kitchen is wonderful. I plan on making your recipe for a staff holiday brunch in December. Thanks all for sharing your thoughts & happy holidays.

    So Yummy!

    Jodi Yerges from WATERTOWN, WI

    I had some major dental work done and could only eat soft foods for 6 weeks. This recipe was easy to follow and turned out so delicious!! Eveny my hubby was thrilled with the tastes and texture.

    just the beginning

    DARLENE ADAMS from ATWATER, CA

    this is a great beginning, a good basic recipe. be sure to allow for the cool down time, it's like a custard, the mixture has to "set" or will be runny and harder to serve. a quiche is like soup, you can put in it whatever you want, if you stick with the same proportions. we've made Fiesta, using all the ingr. for tacos, Holiday using red and green peppers or chives and pimentos, Fancy using artichoke hearts and ham, Sat. night special, clean out the leftovers and bake for sunday brunch. have fun with it, i make it ahead and nuke the slices when people will be in and out. doesn't freeze well, but good in frig for 2-3 days.

    Ham and Swiss Quiche

    Peggy Lindsay from BROOKINGS, OR

    This is a very good recipe. It is simple, and lends itself to variation. I would say that using a frozen prepared pie crust was the only major part that I would change for next time. Maybe even try no pie crust. The prpared pie crust made for a starchy, heavier taste.

    Great treat

    Sharon Glass from Fernandina Beach, FL

    Hi, We all thought this was great. If you are in a hurry, prepare the crust and put the ingredients in the shell and add the flour to them and toss. Cover and you are ready to add the liquid before baking. Great for when you have early morning plans.

    Without the Crust

    Barbara Luther from WHITEWATER, WI

    The first time I made this recipe, I used a home made crust and ,that is for sure a 5 star rating. Alas, my husband and I both must watch our calories, so I tried it in a deepdish pie pan, with a bigger pan of water to set the quiche in, I also used low-salt, low-fat ham, and egg substitute for 1 of the eggs. It was still very good, and I had no leftovers. I used the hint about the immersion blender, and it worked wonderfully. Very good for breakfast, lunch, brunch, or any other time you are hungry.

    Great Football Morning Breakfast!

    Che Rie from Kansas City, MO

    This is the first time I've ever used Canned Evaporated Milk. [I also added some chopped broccoli to the mix.] I prepared this on Sunday morning, and had a wonderful breakfast while watching the football pregame shows. My husband was so impressed. He said it is much better than those frozen quiches.

    Low fat version

    MARTY HEINTZ from OPELOUSAS, LA

    I used egg substitute, fat free Carnation evaporated milk and low-fat cheese to make the recipe healthier. It didn't hurt the taste at all! Next time I am going to try using a phylo dough crust so it is even lower calorie and fat.
