Looking for a Sunday Brunch to impress guests? This Creamy Cheesy Ham Quiche recipe is it! This classic breakfast is a one-pan meal that’s simple to make and will be loved by all!
The secret to a Creamy Cheesy Ham Quiche:
Most quiche recipes call for milk. Step it up a notch by using heavy cream instead. The substitution will make your ham and cheese quiche fluffier, creamier, and so much more savory. Each bite will be a pure delight.
What makes this one-pan meal so easy?
The greatest thing about this ham and cheese quiche recipe is that it’s easy as pie. It only takes 10 minutes to prep and then goes in the oven for 45 minutes. You can’t beat a recipe with only 10 minutes of hands on time.
Frozen pie crust is the secret to keeping this an easy classic breakfast. Sure, you can make your own pie crust from scratch, but if you are aiming for a quick and easy meal, you’ll love the excuse to use a pre-made crust.
What’s the best cheese to use in a quiche recipe?
One of the best things about quiche is that you can put absolutely anything you want into it, including different variations of cheese.
The best cheeses for a traditional ham and cheese quiche include Swiss, cheddar, gruyere, or a combination. This particular recipe uses a Swiss gruyere that can be found in most grocery stores.
Is it really this easy to impress guests for brunch?
