  • Cheddar cheese or Gruyere cheese can be used instead of Swiss cheese. Any cheese actually that melts well and is strong and tasty.
  • For great presentation and added taste, add a few thin slices of tomato to the quiche before baking as in the image above.
  • Add more healthy nutrition by adding a few chopped vegetables. Broccoli works well, chopped fine, as do chopped red or green peppers.
  • Omit the ham and you will have a perfect vegetarian quiche.

    Ham and Cheese Quiche

    I love pies and quiches since they are great when our friends come home for dinner. In general, I like to replace the standard baked ham with some jamon iberico de bellota – aka iberico ham or patanegra-. It is true that it is more expensive but the taste of the dish really improves making it way more refined.


    Good Recipe

    This is very good, the changes that I made to the recipe are: Instead of a whole cup of cream, I used 1/2 cup cream and 1/2 1% milk. For cheese, I mixed gruyere and cheddar. I’m certain I will make this again.
