I have a few kids in my family who do not like eggs.  OK, its 3 out of 4.  But when I call this “ham and cheese pie” at least 2 of them will eat it without complaint.  🙂  It is tasty and a great dish to take for brunch get togethers.

Ham & Cheese Quiche

Adapted from Taste of Home Freezer Pleasers cookbook
2 pie shells (9 inches-the frozen kind already in the pan)
2 cups diced fully cooked ham
2 cups (8 oz.) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
4 eggs
2 cups half & half
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

-Line unpricked pastry shells w/a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake @ 400F for 5 min. Remove foil bake 5 more min.
-Divide ham & cheese between the 2 shells. Whisk together eggs, cream, salt, and pepper. Pour into shells. Cover & freeze…make sure it is flat until frozen.
-To use frozen quiche: Completely thaw in fridge. Remove 30 min. before baking. Cover edges with foil & bake @ 400 F for 35-40 min. Let stand 5-10 min before cutting.
***I have forgotten to thaw and just set out 30 min before baking. Takes a little longer, but turned out fine.*** 🙂
