This is an excellent quiche recipe.  I made my own crust in the processor and it was excellent, easy, and perfect!  I accidentally set the temp. wrong but it turned out fine and  I froze the remainder slices individually and successfully (first in saran wrap and then in a freezer bag).   Defrost in your microwave or at room temp. and it comes back perfectly.  I’d increase the spices next time, didn’t really taste them too much.  I made the quiche crust in the food processor with the recipe below in the link.  It was A+.  Great flavor!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 refrigerated pie crust, softened as directed on box or make your own quiche crust, recipe here.
  • 1 1/2 cups cubed cooked ham

  • 4 eggs, large or bigger
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp. coarse salt or regular
  • 1/2 tsp. dry ground mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Defrost your pie crust according to the box, or make the quiche crust recipe in the link.  I did not pre-bake the quiche crust before putting my ingredients in.
  2. Heat oven to 375° and place pie crust in 9″ glass pie pan.
  3. Layer ham, cheese, and broccoli in crust-lined pan.
  4. In medium bowl, beat eggs and milk with fork or whisk.  Stir in remaining ingredients, pour mixture over broccoli.
