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.
