Whoever came up with the saying “real men don’t eat quiche” most likely never tasted quiche in their life, a quiche is basically an omelette in a pie crust and you never hear of real men refusing omelettes. I made both quiches at once, so they are identical, ham and cheese quiche, the cheese being Swiss cheese and the ham is your run of the mill domestic ham. I made the pie crust in my food processor, it makes it so easy to bring the flour, salt, butter, Crisco and ice water together in a ball of dough. All I had to do was press it down into a disk, cover it up in Saran Wrap and let it rest in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. The filling besides the slices of ham and Swiss cheese was a mixture of 3 eggs, 1 cup of heavy cream, salt, pepper and nutmeg. I baked both of them in a 400 degree oven for 40 minutes, I’m having heating issues with my oven, so you might not need to keep the heat so high for so long, the idea of the 400 degrees is to get the golden crust, once that is achieved, usually 10 to 15 minutes, then you lower the temperature to 350 degrees until a knife comes out clean which is about 35 minutes later.

My husband and our daughter raved over the quiche, at the rate they are eating it, I did the right thing making two quiches, at least with two, I’m guaranteed a slice or two, lol.
