Easter Leftovers Quiche

The giveaway for an autographed copy of Dead, Without a Stone to Tell It ends April 5! 


This Easter a friend of the family decided to bless us with an ham. . . D told me just as I had gotten home from the store with a large ham, of course!

And now, I'm trying to find creative ways to use up the ham. We have one in the freezer, but still have quite a bit of leftovers from Easter dinner.

Tonight's dinner was a very successful attempt at using up a nice chunk of ham, some veggies and other pantry items. Normally, I would have used asparagus in this, but that was one dish that completely disappeared at the table. These dinners are awesome because they cost so little out of pocket.

Easter Leftovers Quiche (Ham and broccoli)

1 deep dish pie crust
5 eggs
1 C half and half
1/4 C sour cream
1 1/2 C colby jack cheese
1/2  C chopped broccoli
1 C chopped ham
salt and pepper to taste

Bake pie crust in 450 degree oven for 6 minutes. 

Turn down oven to 350 degrees. 

In a large bowl, gently whisk eggs. Whisk in half and half and sour cream. Stir in cheese, broccoli, a pinch of nutmeg and salt and pepper to taste.

Bake for 55 minutes or until a knife inserted into the middle comes out clean. Let set for 10 minutes before serving.
