What You’ll Need

  • Pie Crust
  • Butter
  • Ham
  • Red and Orange Bell Peppers
  • Green Onions
  • Eggs
  • Dijon Mustard
  • Garlic Powder
  • Heavy Cream
  • Salt
  • Shredded Cheddar or Colby Jack Cheese

How to Make Ham Pepper Quiche

To start, you’ll parbake the crust. This just means you bake it for a little bit prior to adding the filling so it isn’t super soggy from the filling, but it also isn’t fully cooked. You can use a frozen deep dish pie shell, or you can buy a refrigerated pie crust and place it into a deep pie dish. Or you can make your own pie crust – whatever you want!

While the crust is baking, cook the peppers in some butter. You want them softened so they aren’t crunchy in the quiche. Once the peppers are cooked and the crust is baked, sprinkle the fillings in the pie dish. Add the peppers, diced ham, diced green onions, and shredded cheese. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, heavy cream, dijon mustard, garlic powder, and salt. Pour the egg mixture over the pie fillings in the pie crust and then bake in a 375 degree oven for 35-40 minutes. The top should be golden and the filling should be set. Let it cool.

This ham quiche can be served immediately or it can be refrigerated and served later. Quiches are great because they can be served at room temperature!
