New Year’s Quiche (Also Known as After Christmas Quiche)

Back, when BooMama was having her Christmas Tour of Homes, I found a yummy recipe for Christmas Quiche at Annie’s Eyes
And I made that recipe for Christmas breakfast and it was very yummy. I love quiche, but it is one of those things I don’t make very often, truly, I am not sure why.
Anyway, I had ham left from Christmas. I have eaten ham and cheese sandwiches until I though my nose was starting to look a bit like a snout…and don’t get me started on my tail! So what to do with? Well, I could freeze it and use it in green beans, but I don’t make southern style green beans very often. I could make ham salad, but I don’t really care for that…thinking, thinking (smell the smoke?)
AH HA!
New Year’s Quiche was born!
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup chopped pepper (I happened to have some red on hand)
2 tbsp onion
1 cup cream
5 eggs
ham
1 deep shell pie crust
Prepare the pie crust.
Whisk the five eggs, then add in the cream, onion, and pepper in one bowl.
Using another bowl, put in the 1 1/2 cups of cheddar cheese and a couple of cups of ham (more or less…I didn’t actually measure it.) Mix the cheese and ham up, then put in the prepared pie crust. Pour the egg mixture over top (go slowly with this giving the egg mixture time to sink into the nooks and crannies or else it will run over the side of the crust).
Bake for 35 minutes at 350 degrees. (I have to say that it took my quiche 1 hour and 5 minutes – not sure what the difference in time is).
This was very YUMMY!
