Potato, Ham, and Broccoli Quiche

Posted by terrepruitt on March 1, 2021

A long time ago I purchased a quiche making kit from the place that we get our organic produce delivery from. It was really good. I decided to get the dough again to make a quiche. When I had ordered the dough I didn’t know what I was going to put in the quiche. But then I came across the ham we had for Christmas and we had received broccoli in the produce box so I thought that would be good. This is a quiche recipe with an idea of additions. I didn’t really measure the additions (I am guesstimating the amounts below) and they turned out to be too much.

I used the same ingredients and ideas as the last quiche, except this time I put in ham and broccoli. I actually put in way too much stuff as it spilled all over the oven. It was very tasty.

potatoes (2 small)
onion (3/4 cup)
ham (1/2 cup)
broccoli (1 cup)

1 12 ounce ball of pie dough
1 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella
6 eggs
1 cups of half and half
Salt
pepper

I cut up the potato, I chopped some onion, I cut up the ham, and I cut up the broccoli. I sauteed some chopped onion then added the potato. I cooked the potato not all the way done because I wanted to add the ham AND it was going to be cooking in the oven for 50 minutes. Then I added the ham to the pan. The ham was already cooked so I as just trying to get the potatoes to get that yummy ham flavor. I added the broccoli last and barely let it cook because I like raw broccoli and I knew it still had to cook in the oven.

I followed the instructions from the recipe card from my first quiche.

Let the dough sit out for at about 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375° F. Lightly grease pie pan with oil. Dust countertop and flatten the ball of dough. Use a little more flour on top of the circle and, using a rolling pin, make the circle larger – large enough to fit into the pie pan. Place the dough in the pie pan, making sure it covers the bottom and can be pressed into the sides. Place the pie pan in the freezer to chill while you make the filling.

(I used an electric hand mixer.) Beat the eggs, then add the half and half, then using a spoon, stir in 1 cup of the cheese, add salt and pepper if you would like.

Put your additions (for me that was the potatoes, ham, and broccoli) in the pie pan, then pour the egg mixture on top. Stir bit to make sure it is all mixed together. Then bake for about 40 minutes. Check to see that it is pretty much done – not jiggly, then put the rest of the cheese on top and cook until melted. The quiche should be fully cooked before eating, so make sure it is not jiggling.

Serve hot.
