Becky's Healthier Ham and Cheese Quiche

Rated as 4.87 out of 5 Stars

"I have been on a permanent quest to find the perfect quiche recipe. As a self-professed breakfast food, cheese, and egg lover, quiche represents to me all that is right and good in a culinary concoction. Traditionally quiche is not a healthy option, what with all the cream and cheese that typically goes into it. I have literally experimented with different versions of a healthier quiche for years, but a couple of weeks ago I stumbled upon the perfect mixture, and I am pleased to share it here with all of you."

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Unroll pie crust and press into an 8-inch pie dish.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir green onions until wilted and beginning to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Spread ham over prepared pie crust and top with green onions.
  3. Whisk egg substitute, evaporated milk, and mozzarella cheese in a bowl. Pour over ham mixture. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and garnish with chives.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Increase heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and continue baking until quiche is browned, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven and allow quiche to rest until eggs are set, about 30 minutes more.

It needs to be mentioned that the Quiche should be put on the 2nd rack level of your stove. I had it at mid level and the cooking time wasn't enough. Once I moved it, it cooked wonderfully. Also...

Delicious! This was as good as a restaurant quiche and much better for you. I only used half the ham because 1/2 pound seemed to much and I used four eggs instead of the egg substitute because t...

This is one of our family regular rotations. I’ve made it multiple times including teenagers waiting for their hardworking contractor father to finish a project at our house and professional che...

Really delicious. I ended up using an egg white only substitute, and though it was a little moist for the pie crust it was very delicious. Will definitely be making it again

I used 4 eggs as recommended by others (didn't have egg substitute), chopped up some leftover cooked broccoli, used light mozzarella, and added a little cheddar. Nice flavor. Only issue was that...

Made this 2 days ago for Brunch. I used cheddar cheese instead of mozzarella cheese and regular milk instead of FFBT evaporated milk. Oh, and I made my own pastry crust. It was absolutely DELICI...
