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

Ingredients

  • 1 package (14.1 ounces) refrigerated pie pastry
  • 2 cups diced fully cooked ham
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese

  • 4 large eggs

Nutritional Facts

1 piece: 349 calories, 23g fat (12g saturated fat), 132mg cholesterol, 596mg sodium, 20g carbohydrate (3g sugars, 0 fiber), 13g protein.

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.
    Freeze option: Cover and freeze unbaked quiche. To use, remove from freezer 30 minutes before baking (do not thaw). Preheat oven to 350°. Place quiche on a baking sheet; cover edge loosely with foil. Bake as directed, increasing time as necessary for a knife inserted near the center to come out clean.
    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 tried other recipes that were good but not quite right. This recipe was right on. It's a keeper. Love the simplicity of the ingredients."

"This one turned out to be pretty bland. The recipe was supposed to make two but it was only enough for one 9"/1qt dish. I cut back on the half and half by 1/4c. but it's still too moist and probably should have used just 1 1/4c. half and half, not 2c. I used less ham and less cheese. This one I wouldn't make again though it's not too bad."

"Very Good! Did not pre bake crust. Covered edges except last 10 minutes, turned out great. Added extra dried onion. I used 4 cups diced ham (had leftover ham to use up). Will make this again!"

"Great. I added 1/2 tsp onion powder weather than the minced onion. Also, I used 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup Gouda, and 1 cup of Swiss cheese. It took about 55 min to cook but we loved it!"

"I used a frozen pie shell and halved the ingredients. I thought it tasted okay (hubby liked it a lot), but I used 2% milk and the pie crust bottom was very very soggy. And I baked it for 50 minutes. Might try it again without any crust."

"Simple to prepare and delicious! My whole family loved it, even the picker eaters. I decided to skip the crust because I'm not a huge fan but otherwise pretty much followed the recipe. Took about 5 minutes to put together and baked for 40 minutes. Turned out great! Would definitely make it again."

"This was great. I changed it around a bit. (My version is less healthy!). Instead of dried minced onion I saut?ed about a half of an onion chopped in butter. I only made one quiche. Used 1 1/2 cups of cheese and ham, 4 eggs and 1 1/2 cups of heavy cream (its what we had). I cooked it as instructed for about 30 minutes and then I covered, cut oven down to 350 and watched it until I liked how it looked. My (Picky) husband ate 1/2 of it. So good."

"Just a question......If making pies to freeze are they to be baked before freezing?

And...should they be defrosted before baking. What temp and for how long?
Sounds like a winner but can't rate until I make it
Thanks"
