"One of my all time favorites! My mother got this recipe from her friend Betty, It's a make ahead recipe, to be frozen and used later. My mother used to make mass quantities and take them out whenever she needed for an easy meal or hors d'oeuvre. She also made it with the light cream instead of milk."

  1. In medium bowl, toss 4 teaspoons flour with the grated cheese. Sprinkle mixture into the pie shell. On top of cheese, sprinkle 1/2 cup of diced ham.
  2. In medium bowl, combine eggs, milk or cream, and then add salt and mustard powder. Beat until smooth and pour over cheese and ham.
  3. Put piece of plastic wrap large enough to overlap sides over top of quiche, then a piece of foil, and seal well around the edges. (plastic keeps the foil from sticking to the food). Place prepared quiche in freezer.
  4. When ready to prepare, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C.) Remove foil and plastic wrap. Put foil around edge of crust to protect it.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 60 minutes, or until filling is set and crust is golden brown. Garnish with parsley and pimiento if desired

Delicious and versatile! I made two versions: one with a crust (used Butter Flaky Pie Crust) and one without. I'd recommend using a crust because the cheese on the crustless one got overcooked...

This was the recipe I chose as a "base". I made a few modifications and additions and it was really good. I doubled the recipe and added 1 egg.(For a total of 7 eggs)I used Colby/Jack cheese, ad...

Good, easy basic quiche recipe. I added cheddar, scallions and mushrooms to it and it was fantastic.

This was my first quiche, so I followed the recipe exactly. It came out perfect! Next time I'll use a homemade crust, bigger pan, and add broccoli! Note: This will spill over and burn onto you...

i love that you can freeze this recipe but mine keeps turning out watery.
