This Easy Ham and Cheese Quiche recipe comes from my sister, who said my Mother used to make it all the time. I don't remember ever having it, but I was the baby of the family and maybe my Mom got tired of making it by the time I was old enough to notice!
Another name for it is Impossible Quiche. You may be familiar with the 'Impossible' recipes made with Bisquick™, and this is one of them.
My sister made it for me recently while I was visiting and I just love it! Fluffy with chunks of ham (or bacon, if you'd like), cheese, and onion. Perfect combination for this wonderful egg dish!
On top of tasting so good, it's ultra easy. There is the argument on whether on not this is a quiche - maybe a frittata-ish thing?
It doesn't matter. It's great.
To put this dish together, you chop your ham and onions, shred the cheese and sprinkle it into a greased pie dish. Dump all of the other ingredients into a blender and mix on high for about a minute.
Pour it into the pie plate, bake, and there you go! A savory, delicious, eggy, cheesy meal.
Serve this with a side of sliced apple or grapes or maybe a side salad. Add a cup of your favorite coffee and a glass of orange juice and you'll be full and happy.
If you're looking for a Christmas or New Year's brunch recipe, try this Easy Ham and Cheese Quiche. Use bacon if you'd rather and switch up the cheeses (although nothing beats ham and Swiss cheese in my opinion...). A little finely green or red pepper would make it colorful and tempting, too!
If you want something else to add to your brunch table, try this amazing Soufflé Omelet with Spinach and Brie. It's incredibly delicious.
- ¼ lb. smoked ham, chopped into small cubes
- ¾ C Swiss cheese, shredded
- ¼ C cheddar cheese, shredded
- ⅓ C onion, finely chopped
- 2 C milk
- ½ C Bisquick baking mix
- 4 eggs
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ⅛ teaspoon pepper
- Dash of Tabasco Sauce (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly grease (or spray) a 9" pie plate. Sprinkle ham, cheese, and onion evenly over the bottom of the pie plate.
- Place the remaining ingredients in a blender and blend on high for 1 minutes. Pour carefully into the pie plate.
- Bake until a knife comes out clean, about 50 to 55 minutes. The top will turn dark golden brown.
- Let stand for about 10 minutes before slicing.
Don't pre-cook the onion before adding to the pie plate - it will soften just right while cooking.
Use bacon if you'd like (my sister likes bacon best in this). Add peppers or whatever you'd like - it's very versatile.
