Ham, Broccoli and Swiss Quiche Lorraine

This is a light yet filling dish that is perfect for spring. I just recently served 7 of these for a baby shower and the grandmother of the soon to be mother, one of the best restaurant cooks for the better part of 60 years that I've ever known, said they were absolutely delicious. Since she does not compliment many peoples food, which is the main reason we respect her so much, I thought it best to feature that recipe here.

1 12x12 sheet puff pastry (Pillsbury works perfectly)

1/2 cup chopped ham (either baked or deli, your preference is what makes it yours)

4 pieces of Swiss cheese

3/4 cup chopped fresh broccoli florets

3 eggs

3/4 cups milk

1/2 teaspoons salt

 

1/2 teaspoons dry ground mustard

1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Crack the eggs into a medium bowl. Mix eggs with a whisk thoroughly before adding the other ingredients. Add the milk, salt, mustard and pepper together with the eggs. Normally I throw in my recipes to have a glass of wine while you cook, but let's be serious; nothing goes with cooking this... Maybe Mimosas? Anyways, mix in the ham and broccoli. If you have a good 9 inch pan that you feel comfortable showcasing then use that. If not, Wal-Mart sells a cheap reusable one for a dollar (which is my preference, no dishes!) Spray the pan with pan coating spray (Pam), lay sheet of pastry inside the pan and an inch high on each side of pan. At this point you can round off the edges to make the crust look better.

 

Take your egg mixture and pour it on top of pastry sheets in pan. Try to make it all inside the pan, but who is honestly going to know if you mess up? The cat?

 

Then layer the Swiss cheese on top of the mixture side by side.

 

Cover the pan with tin foil (and remember, unless you have the overpriced, double sided Reynolds Wrap it doesn't matter which side faces down). Back for 35 to 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Uncover and bake for 10-15 minutes until the cheese is slightly browned. Make sure you let the Quiche stand for 20 minutes before you cut it or it will just fall apart and all the seemingly "hard work" you put in to it would have gone to waste. Cut it into 8 even slices and serve.

I like my Quiche cold, but after refrigerating or slicing it you can place it into the microwave for 45 seconds and have it hot: Whatever your personal preference works best. Bon Appetit!

    Everyone who tasted this recipe gave the same review as you gave. This came from their hearts I would say not just by mere way of gusshup. You can opt for more than the present methods.
