Ham, Broccoli, and Mushroom Quiche - Delicious

Sorry about the print color - don't know what's going on.

When Bev made her tomato pie the other day, she made a double crust recipe and had enough left for a quiche so I combined a recipe from For The Love Of Cooking and Spicy Southern Kitchen plus Bev added mushrooms to get the recipe below.

Ham, Broccoli, and Mushroom Quiche

The Ingredients:  (For a 10½ “OD x 2¼ “ tall pie dish)
2 cups frozen broccoli florets, steamed and rough chopped
1½ cup ham, diced about ½ inch
 4 oz mushrooms, halved and sliced
1-2 tsp olive oil
1 cup onion finely diced
1 pre-made, prebaked pie crust (Bev used this parmesan one)
1½ cup extra sharp cheddar shredded
5 eggs
1½ cup half n half plus more for top
S&P to taste

The Instructions:
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
2. Cook onion, mushrooms, and ham until ham is lightly browned, onion is translucent, and the mushrooms are getting dry. Remove to a bowl.
3. Steam the broccoli in a steamer over boiling water for a few of minutes until fork tender and rough chop.
4. Combine the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper, to taste, together in a bowl and whisk until very well combined.
5. Combine the broccoli, ham, mushrooms, and onions in a bowl and add most it to the crust bottom then add most of the cheese.
6. Add the well whisked egg mixture.
7. Sprinkle the remaining broccoli, ham, Mushrooms, and onions on top.

8. Carefully place into the oven and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the top is set and not wiggly and the eggs are cooked through. Less time for a smaller quiche. (We actually had to use the broiler to get the top done).
9. When about done add more cheese to top and cook until it is melted.
10. Let the quiche cool for at least 15 minutes before slicing and serving. Enjoy.

The Verdict:
Bev and I both thought we had never eaten a better quiche.  It was flavorful, full of goodies, and cheesy.  It will be the go-to from now on but likely with a regular pie crust.

  1. You need to just move to Florida so I can be a taste tester :) this is a favorite of mine!

  2. Larry, We also had a quiche the other night! Of course, ours was store bought and you can be assured ours lacked mushrooms. I thought ours was decent and Laurie liked it very much. It was a Fresh Market product. Stay Safe and Take Care, Big Daddy Dave (the picky eater)

  3. Now that looks delicious! I need to search the freezer for a crust!

  4. With that recommendation, I've got to give this one a try.

  5. YUM..... Those pictures made my mouth water. I would love that RIGHT NOW... ha

    Thanks for making me smile.
    Have a great week.

  6. I just had to come here before breakfast and now all I can think about is this quiche. It looks SO tasty and has a great combination of ingredients. YUM.

  7. When Larry says it's 'delicious', than it must be a keeper recipe! Thanks for sharing!
