I was blessed with a loving Grandma named Vera. She was kind and caring and just so damn cute!! She always made me feel loved and I do believe I got my love affair with food from her. On holidays, that we celebrated together she would always ask what she could bring and even if you didn’t ask for it she would always bring a quiche. I have many memories of her coming through the door and yelling ” I made quiche” while my brothers and I laughed about who she was really making that quiche for. I recently found some of her recipes, so in honor of her I am going to share her Ham and Swiss Cheese Quiche recipe.
Here’s what you will need:
– 1 pie crust
– 1/4 lb sliced deli ham
– 1 cup of cubed swiss cheese
– 4 eggs slightly beaten
– 2 cups cream
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
Here’s what you do:
Roll out pie crust into a 10 inch pie pan and bake for 5 minutes at 400 degrees. Then place ham and cubed swiss cheese in pie crust.
Lower temperature in oven to 350 degrees. Combine eggs, cream, salt and pepper and pour over top of the ham and cheese.
Bake for 45 minutes or until inserted knife comes out clean and top is lightly golden.
It is best to let it cool a bit, so it sets properly before serving.
I lost my Grandmother almost 10 years ago and there isn’t anything I wouldn’t do today, to just have her walk through that door with a quiche in hand.
Here’s to a beautiful Lady.
Happy Easter and Enjoy!!
