This is the invitation that I sent to the others in our group:
February has so many food holidays...chocolate, of course. Heart healthy, Red foods, Fondues, Berries, Cherries, Grapefruit and Hot Breakfasts to name just a few. And American Pies....perfect...you can make them red, you can make them chocolate, you can use berries or cherries, you can make them savory and serve them as a hot breakfast, you can make them out of grapefruit....well, maybe not, but if you do you will be my hero!!!I had great plans for the pie I was going to create for this event. I signed up to host quite a while ago and didn't anticipate where my life would be at posting time. Mom passed away on the 27th of January and we had the funeral this past weekend when I would have been creating and baking and scheduling my post.
This event, of course, got placed on the back burner and I apologize to any of the group that felt neglected this month. I truly appreciate all of the great recipes that you are sharing today.
Frank's sister and brother in law, were kind enough to send a honey baked ham and all the trimmings to our house to serve during the breaks from the funeral home. Thanks Roz and Ron, that was very thoughtful and kind of you. When things finally calmed down around here and I had time to think of this challenge, I looked in the fridge, found the ham bone with the remaining meat still on it and some broccoli and cheese I had bought for soup that had never gotten made. I, of course, always have eggs so a Ham and Broccoli Quiche it is.
I love to make quiches.
Layer on any flavors that you love.
Make it ahead of time and reheat it when ready to serve.
- Start with pastry for a one crust pie.
- Add in meat of your choice
- Next is your layer of flavoring, I chose sweet onion, you can use garlic, scallions, leeks, etc.
- Layer on one or more vegetables, you want about 1 1/2 c. total
- Sprinkle on a cup of cheese.
- Pour your custard mixture over all and bake to perfection.
Ham and Broccoli Quiche
Pastry for a one crust pie
1 cup diced ham
1/4 c. diced sweet onion
1 1/2 c. cooked broccoli, chopped
1 c. shredded Colby Jack cheese
1 c. heavy cream
salt and pepper to taste
Line a deep dish pie pan with the pastry. Sprinkle the ham along the bottom of the crust. Sprinkle with the onion, the broccoli and the cheese. Whisk together the eggs, cream, salt and pepper. Pour over the filled pie crust. Bake in a preheated 400* oven for 40-45 minutes, until puffed, golden and a knife inserted into the center removes cleanly. Let cool for 15 minutes before slicing.
