Ham 'n' Cheese Quiche Recipe

When I was expecting our daughter, I made and froze these cheesy quiches as well as several other dishes. After her birth, it was nice to have dinner in the freezer when my husband and I were too tired to cook. —Christena Palmer, Green River, Wyoming

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Unroll pastry sheets into two 9-in. pie plates; flute edges. Line unpricked pastry shells with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Fill with pie weights, dried beans or uncooked rice. Bake 10-12 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove foil and weights; bake 3-5 minutes longer or until bottom is golden brown. Cool on wire racks.
  2. Divide ham, cheese and onion between shells. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, cream, salt and pepper until blended. Pour into shells. Cover edges loosely with foil. Bake 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand 5-10 minutes before cutting. Yield: 2 quiches (6 servings each).
Editor's Note: Let pie weights cool before storing. Beans and rice may be reused for pie weights, but not for cooking.

"I have made many like this and omit the crust,it will be a nice savory square."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 7, 2014

"I would only PARTIALLY prebake crust, with weights. I would prebake for about 5 minutes, with a foil collar on the crust edges. Then after filling, I would bake in the lower half of the oven for 10 minutes, then move to the middle of the oven. Remove the collar about 15 minutes before completion of baking."
