Breakfast Quiche with Ham and Cheese: A Savory Morning Delight

There’s nothing quite like starting your day with a delicious, hearty breakfast. Our ham and cheese quiche is not only a crowd-pleaser but also easy to prepare. Let’s dive into the details of making this delectable dish.


  • 1 pie crust, homemade or store-bought
  • 1 cup of diced ham
  • 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup of heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg


  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Roll out your pie crust and fit it into a 9-inch pie dish. Trim and crimp the edges as needed.
  3. Spread the diced ham and shredded cheese evenly over the bottom of the pie crust.
  4. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, heavy cream, salt, pepper, and nutmeg until well combined.
  5. Pour the egg mixture over the ham and cheese in the pie crust.
  6. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the quiche is set and lightly browned on top. Let it cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.


  • Feel free to swap out the ham and cheddar cheese for other meats and cheeses of your choice. This recipe is quite versatile!
  • For a healthier option, replace the heavy cream with whole milk or a mix of whole milk and half-and-half.
  • Adding a small salad or fruit on the side can balance out this rich, savory dish.
  • Leftover quiche can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. It reheats well in the microwave or oven.

Enjoy your ham and cheese quiche, and remember, a good day starts with a good breakfast!
