Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
A sophisticated and flavorful dish with simple ingredients. Combine eggs, cream, cheese, ham, and chives for a light but very satisfying meal. Quiche pairs nicely with sweet and savory sides, creating an adaptable dish that can be featured for any meal of the day. Serve with sour cream and Rivera's Family Recipe Salsa for a Mexican twist on a French classic.
6 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup creme fraiche or heavy cream
1/4 cup shaved parmesan cheese
3/4 cup ham, small cubes
2-3 tbsp. chives, chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste
Refrigerated Pie Crust
Rivera's Family Recipe Salsa
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a pie pan with nonstick spray. Spread the pie crust dough in the pie pan, crimping the edges. Poke across the crust bottom with a fork to avoid bubbling when baking. Place in the oven to bake for 8-10 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine the eggs, cream, cheese, chives, and salt and pepper in a bowl. Allow the baked pie crust to cool for a few minutes, then add half of the ham cubes to the bottom of the pie crust. Pour the egg mixture over the ham cubes. Spread the remaining ham cubes onto the top of the egg mixture.
Cover the edges of the pie crust with aluminum foil to prevent burning. Place the quiche in the oven and cook for 40-45 minutes. The foil can be removed the last 5-10 minutes of baking. The quiche is done when it becomes lightly brown on top and doesn't wiggle when moved. Serve with fruit, veggies, toast, bagels, salad, sour cream, or Rivera's Family Recipe Salsa.
