    What is quiche?

    If you’ve never had quiche before (don’t worry I hadn’t tried it until I got married), it’s basically a savory tart made with a pie curst and filled with eggs, milk or cream, meat and vegetables. You may be wondering what’s the difference between a fritatta and quiche. The crust is really the main difference. I also add milk or cream to mine as well plus more cheese. Quiche is always the showstopper at any brunch and the first dish to go!

    The best part about this quiche recipe is you can customize it with your favorite vegetables. Some of my favorites to add in are peppers and mushrooms, but I usually stick with just spinach since my kids don’t seem to mind when I add that. It’s pretty flavorless but adds color and a little bit of nutrition.

    How to make quiche

    This ham and cheese quiche starts our with a pie crust as the base. I usually use a store bought crust (Pillsbury is my go to) to save time, but you can definitely make a homemade pie crust.

    1. Press the dough around the edges of a 9-inch tart pan or pie dish.
    2. Melt the butter over medium heat. Cook onions for 2 minutes. Stir in ham and bacon bits and let cook for an additional 3 minutes, or until the onions have caramelized.
    3. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and half and half. Stir in cheese, parsley flakes, pepper, spinach, and the ham mixture. Then pour into the tart pan
    4. Bake 25 to 35 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick comes clean.
