Greens, Eggs and Ham Quiche
Recipe type: Entree
Serves: 8
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 3 cups roughly chopped greens (kale, chard, spinach etc)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup half & half
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ⅔ cup roughly chopped ham
  • 2 regular 9-inch pie crusts (frozen or homemade), unbaked
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and saute until softened, about 4-5 minutes. Add the chopped greens, stir, and cook until wilted, about 3-4 minutes. Set aside to cool. Once cool, drain any excess liquid.
  3. In a bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and half & half. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. If using frozen pie crusts, you can leave them in the aluminum pie plates they come in. If using homemade, press into 9-inch pie plates. Place pie plates on a baking sheet.
  5. Spread half the cheese, half the ham, and half the cooked greens mixture into each pie crust. Then pour half the egg mixture over top into each pie crust.
  6. Place the baking sheet with pie plates on top into the preheated oven and bake 45 minutes, until quiches are set in the middle and crust is golden brown.
  7. Let cool a few minutes before cutting if serving warm, or cool completely and serve at room temperature. You can also refrigerate and serve chilled or reheated.
