what you'll do:
If you do not like swiss, you can use any cheese you prefer - swiss cheese does have a love/hate relationship.
NOTE: Do not feel "obligated" to salt this at ANY point. Between the ham & the cheese, salt is not necessary. Too much sodium is a bad thing. So just leave it alone! Your heart will thank you : )
I prefer this cold & it tastes better after about 6 hours of chilling.
WANNA MIX IT UP? Cheeseburger quiche can be easily adapted following these same steps, using cooked ground beef & cheddar cheese in place of ham & swiss!!
WARNING: Can be habit forming!
you'll need these items:
first step is to toast your bread if you're making your own bread crumbs.....
then chop, dice & shred:
butter your quiche dish & dust/sprinkle the bread crumbs around the pan.
my lovely daughter shows ours off......
next you'll heat the skillet, melt butter, add the ham & onions
and saute until transparent and soft:
while the mixture is cooking, grab a large bowl.
combine eggs, half & half, sour cream & pepper.
whisk your worries away.....keep whisking....
once cooked, use a paper towel & remove any excess liquid from the pan.
gently pour/spread mixture in pan as pictured below:
(be mindful of your breadcrumb coating)
now, sprinkle the cheese all around
(good grief that's A LOT of cheese, so much I forgot to photo it!)
and then slowly pour in your egg mixture, like so:
place this into your pre-heated oven & bake for 20-25 minutes.........
wait until the edges are a golden brown and the center is set.
