Sweet & Savory Ham and Cheese Quiche

Posted on: November 28, 2016


I have always loved quiche. So good!

However, I’ve never really been one for making it. I’ve eaten it when other people have made it, but I wasn’t huge on making it myself. But then I came across this recipe from The Pioneer Woman and realized it looked pretty simple to make.

So, for your eating pleasure, here is a simple quiche recipe for you. It’s got all the savory tastes of quiche we enjoy such as mushrooms, ham, and cheese, but also a bit of sweet flavor in the form of a (store bought) shortbread crust.



2 Keebler Shortbread Ready pie crusts

1  7oz can of sliced mushrooms

2 Green Onions, chopped

8 eggs

1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream

1 cup shredded Monterey Jack Cheese

8oz John Morrell diced ham

Salt & Pepper to taste



Preheat oven to 4oo degrees.

Add the eggs and quiche to a medium bowl then whisk them to combine.


Stir in the green onion, mushrooms, cheese, ham, salt and pepper.


The mixture will be thick.

Pour mixture into the two ready made pie crusts. They will be very full! Since they are so full, I find it easiest to put them on a cookie sheet and cook them on that.


Cover loosely with tin foil (to prevent top from becoming too brown) and bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes. Remove the foil and bake an additional 10 minutes.

Remove from oven and let it sit for 10 minutes before serving.
