Oh So Easy Quiche!

Hey Everyone… Happy Tuesday!  I had a huge family gathering on the weekend and with that came a lot of food.  One of the feature brunch dishes that I chose was a wonderful, yet simple, kicked up quiche.  Talk about an easy recipe that packed a punch.  Over 20 people tried the quiche and everyone of them were raving about both the homemade pastry and filling.

Follow along below and try out this quiche.  I made a couple of different types.  Our feature quiche was ham and spinach with monterey jack cheese.  I also made a traditional bacon, mushroom quiche with cheddar cheese.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 (5 ounce) container process sharp cheese spread
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons water

FILLING:

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped ham
  • 1/2 cup Spinach chopped
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

OR

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped bacon
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Method

  1. In a small bowl, cut butter and cheese spread into flour until well blended.
  2. Add water and toss with a fork until a ball forms.
  3. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  4. Press tablespoonfuls onto the bottom and up the sides of greased miniature muffin cups.
  5. In a bowl, beat the egg, milk and salt. Stir in ham and cheese.
  6. Spoon a rounded teaspoonful into each shell.
  7. Bake at 350F for 30 minutes or until golden brown. (This is actually a shot of the bacon and mushroom quiche in case you thought I was losing my mind)
  8. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
  9. ENJOY!

So as always, do tell Zesty what’s your favorite quiche filling.  I can’t wait to hear everyone’s responses.  Hope everybody has a great Tuesday!
