Ham and Spinach Quiche
I love serving ham and spinach quiche, western omelet quiche or easy sausage quiche for all of the lady like reasons you can imagine. It's definitely on my short list menu for tea parties and brunch, and in general, I just like the idea of a savory pie. It's a fantastic for a light lunch or dinner when paired with a salad and the men in my life love quiche, too. I've witnessed it firsthand.
What better way to use vegetables to brightly color a dish than including it in a quiche. Spinach ranks close to number one for beloved vegetables at our house. It's amazing how I can get my boys to eat vegetables in quiches like my broccoli cheddar bacon quiche and they'll eat them at any meal.

Helpful Kitchen Items:
Ham and Spinach Quiche
- 1 9 inch deep dish homemade pie crust OR frozen deep dish pie crust
- 1 ¼ cups heavy cream
- 5 large eggs
- 1 Tbsp chopped flat leaf parsley
- 1 tsp onion powder
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ tsp black pepper
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- ¼ tsp ground mustard
- 1/16 tsp nutmeg
- 1 ½ cups diced cooked ham
- ⅓ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
- 1 ½ cups roughly chopped fresh baby spinach
- 1 ½ cups shredded Swiss or Gruyere cheese divided
- Preheat the oven to 375°F. If using a homemade pie crust, press into a 9 inch deep dish pan. Crimp edges as desired. If using a frozen or homemade crust, place onto a baking sheet for easy moving in and out of the oven.
- In a small mixing bowl, whisk together heavy cream, eggs, chopped parsley, onion powder, salt, pepper, garlic powder, dry mustard and nutmeg.
- To assemble: Arrange diced ham evenly over bottom of pie crust. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over ham. Sprinkle 1 cup of shredded Swiss or Gruyere over Parmesan.
- Arrange chopped spinach over shredded cheese. Pour the filling evenly over the spinach layer making sure it's evenly distributed. It's helpful to use a fork to gently move spinach in places to allow it to reach ham. Sprinkle the remaining shredded Swiss cheese on top.
- Place into the preheated oven and bake for 30-40 minutes until spinach is tender and egg custard is cooked through.
- Allow the quiche to stand on the counter for at least 20 minutes before serving.
