The Best Quiche Recipe
This will effectively make use of some of your leftover ham, and the remains of that cheese tray. Again, like the turkey pies, same crust and same pie plates for freezing.
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups chopped cooked ham
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 small onion, grated
1/8 tsp grated nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup lard
2 cups flour
1 tbsp vinegar
1 tbsp cold water
Mix the lard into the flour until it has the consistency of corn meal. Mix the vinegar, egg and water together with a fork and add to the dry mixture. Bring together in a ball. Roll to match the size of your baking dishes.
Preheat oven to 375˚F, weight the dough in a 9-inch pie pan and bake about 5 minutes.
Place the pan onto a baking sheet and sprinkle with the cheese and ham.
Whisk the remaining ingredients thoroughly and pour over the cheese and ham.
Bake 30 to 40 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the quiche comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
