I got this recipe from my aunt. It has been one of my favorites for as long as I can remember. It's definitely comfort food for me! Garnish cooked pie with more Swiss cheese.

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

I used Pillsbury pie crust and whole milk. I also added some green onions and 1 cup of mixed frozen carrots and peas. The sauce set up great. Hubby loved this dish. Read More

This recipe was just ok for my husband and me. I think it needed more ham and maybe even onions. There seemed to be a lot of filling (sauce creamy stuff) but not enough IN the filling. Broccoli or spinach might be a nice addition. Read More
