  • Dish name: Ham and Swiss Quiche

  • Cuisine: French-inspired

  • Preparation time: 10 minutes, plus chilling

  • Cooking time: 40-45 minutes

  • Yield: Serves 6


  • 1 pie pastry crust (9-inch)

  • 1 cup cooked ham, diced

  • 1 cup Swiss cheese, shredded

  • 3 large eggs

  • 1 cup heavy cream or whole milk

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • Optional: A pinch of nutmeg for added flavor


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

  2. Fit the pie crust into a 9-inch quiche dish and chill in the refrigerator.

  3. Layer the diced ham and Swiss cheese into the crust.

  4. In a bowl, beat together the eggs and cream. Season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg if using.

  5. Pour the egg mixture over the ham and cheese.

  6. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the center of the quiche is set and the top is golden brown.

  7. Let the quiche cool slightly before cutting and serving.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Even Distribution: Spread the ham and cheese evenly to ensure every bite has a good mix of flavors.

  • Crust: For a crisp crust, blind bake it for around 10 minutes before adding the filling.

  • High-Quality Ham: Opt for high-quality cooked ham to elevate the flavor of your quiche.

  • Nutmeg: Nutmeg pairs wonderfully with the ham and Swiss cheese, but use it sparingly to complement rather than overpower the flavors.

  • Egg Mixture: Avoid overbeating the eggs to prevent the formation of air bubbles that can affect the texture.

  • Checking Doneness: Use a toothpick or knife to check if the center is set.

  • Resting Time: Allow the quiche to rest for a few minutes after removing it from the oven. This will help the quiche to set and make slicing easier.

  • Cheese Variations: Experiment with different types of cheese like Gruyère or Emmental if Swiss cheese isn't available.

  • Serving Suggestions: Serve with a salad or your choice of steamed vegetables to complete the meal.

Ham and Swiss Quiche is a mouthwatering dish that's both simple to make and satisfying to eat. Follow these practical tips and tricks to make sure your quiche turns out beautifully every time!
