Ham & Cheese Quiche

If, like our house you've still got about a quarter of a leg of ham in your fridge after Christmas, this is a great recipe to use some of it up, especially if you're sick of ham sandwiches!


1 savoury pastry case
1 Cup leftover chopped leg ham (or you could use bacon if you've got no ham, just cook it first)
100g tasty cheese
1/2 bunch chives
4 eggs
1/2 Cup thickened cream


  1. Pre-heat oven to 160°C. Place pastry case on a tray. Cook in the oven for 10 mins.
  2. Take 1 egg and whisk it up a little. Brush the pastry case with the egg and place back in the oven for 5 more minutes, it should be a light brown colour. Remove from the oven and set aside.

  3. Grate the cheese and finely chop the chives.
  4. Mix the remaining 3 eggs with the cream and pepper (you don't need salt as the ham & cheese is salty enough).
  5. Layer the ham, cheese and chives in the pastry case.
  6. Slowly pour over the egg & cream mixture, give it a shake to get it into all the little spaces.
  7. Bake for a further 20-25mins until filling is set and slightly browned on top.
  8. Serve warm or cold with a side salad.


  1. That looks absolutely delicious! Makes me wish I had some leftover ham in the fridge to make this :D

  2. What an absolutely awesome looking quiche. Love a slice of quiche and salad for a summer dinner.

  3. Thanks for your comments Lorraine and Sara :-) Love both your blogs!
