Discover how to make a delightful Ham & Cheddar Quiche with our easy-to-follow recipe. Perfect for breakfast or brunch, it’s a dish to cherish!


  • 1 refrigerated pie crust
  • 6 large eggs
  • ¾ cup milk or cream
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup cooked ham, chopped
  • 1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 3 tablespoons green onions, chopped


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Prepare the crust by unrolling the pie crust and pressing it into a 9-inch pie plate. Crimp the top edges for a decorative touch.
  3. Mix the filling by whisking together eggs, milk, salt, and pepper in a large bowl.
  4. Assemble the quiche by sprinkling chopped ham, 1 cup of cheddar cheese, and green onions evenly over the crust. Pour the egg mixture over the ham and cheese layer. Finish by sprinkling the remaining ½ cup of cheese on top.
  5. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the center is set and the top is lightly golden. Allow it to cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.


The success of a quiche lies in its preparation. Begin by handling the pie crust with care to ensure it doesn’t tear. When mixing the eggs and milk, aim for a light and airy mixture to give the quiche its signature fluffy texture. Layering the ingredients in the crust before adding the egg mixture ensures an even distribution of flavors. Baking the quiche until the center is just set prevents it from becoming too dry or rubbery.
