Ingredients

  • 1 pastry for a 9-inch single pie crust

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

  • teaspoon nutmeg

  • teaspoon garlic salt

  • ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 ½ cups milk

  • 4 ounces shredded Swiss cheese

  • 3 eggs, slightly beaten

  • 1 cup diced ham

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Press pie crust into a 9-inch pie dish.

  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir cornstarch, nutmeg, garlic salt, and black pepper into melted butter until cornstarch dissolves, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour milk into cornstarch mixture; cook and stir until thickened and bubbling, about 5 minutes.

  3. Stir Swiss cheese into milk mixture; cook and stir until melted and cheese sauce is smooth, about 5 minutes.

  4. Whisk 1 to 2 tablespoons cheese sauce and eggs together in a bowl until eggs are warmed; pour into cheese sauce and whisk until incorporated, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir ham into cheese sauce; pour into pie shell.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until pie is set in the middle, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving, 5 to 10 minutes.
