My Mom’s Quiche- The BEST Comfort Food

Yesterday, I blogged about my mom’s quiche- one bite and I am thrown back to my childhood.

It is GLORIOUS! (Both the quiche and my childhood.)

Here is her recipe, and, like all great recipes, it uses approximations and has Mom-esque love at the end.

You can preheat the crust for 5 minutes or so. (always preheat)
grated cheese – a good cup (we always use swiss, but feel free to make it your own)
sliced ham – cut in small pieces (or bacon, or my favorite, leeks) (really you could use anything- spinach, mushrooms, etc)
3 large eggs or 4 medium
1 c milk
1/2 c half and half
dash nutmeg
1 T flour
Put mixed cheese and ham in bottom of pie crust. Mix eggs, milk, h&h; add nutmeg and flour. Pour into crust. Bake at 375 for 40-50 minutes or until knife inserted into center comes out clean.
About 30 minutes in check to be sure the edge of the crust is not browning too quickly. If so put folder silver foil over the edges.
It will come out puffy and then settle as it cools.
