  • Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion and ham in butter until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in morel mushrooms and cook, stirring often, until the mushrooms release their liquid, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle in black pepper and remove from heat.

  • Fit pie crust into a 9-inch pie dish and crimp the edges with a fork. Poke the bottom and sides of the pie crust several times with the fork.

  • Bake crust in the preheated oven just until lightly browned, about 10 minutes.

  • Whisk eggs, cream, and flour in a bowl until well blended; stir in Colby-Monterey Jack cheese.

  • Spread ham and mushroom mixture into the pie crust and pour egg mixture over the filling.

  • Bake quiche in the preheated oven until crust is browned and the filling is set and lightly browned, about 45 minutes. Serve hot or cold.

This quiche is delicious! I had one piece and DH and DS devoured the rest. I wish I had been able to find morels but since I couldn't I used regular button mushrooms. My only other deviation from the recipe was to use 6 green onions with tops for the chopped onion. Excellent! Sorry my picture doesn't do it justice. Read More

I used this recipe as a base for my quiche. I followed the ratios of the egg mixture and added my own toppings; bacon and sweet peppers. The eggs in this are nice and fluffy; which I have not found as much of in other recipes. Read More

This recipe is to die for! I did not have any regular ham so I used cooked smoked ham from Presidents' Choice. Morels are hard to find but I will definitely make it again even if I have to use a different type of mushroom. Read More
