Ham and Cheese Quiche

Tonight's meal was a total, 100% success.  I've always liked Quiche and try new recipes periodically.  A lot of them end up being a little greasy from the meat or a little watery.  In my husband's words "This is like something they would serve at a fine restaurant".  That is quite a complement. 

Ham and Cheese Quiche

1 pre-made pie shell
6 eggs
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 cup diced ham
1/4 cup diced onion
1 cup freshly shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 375

Spray pan in a small pan and saute onions with ham for approx 6 min.  Put the ham and onions in the bottom of the pie shell; top with shredded cheese.  In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, cream, salt and pepper until well blended.  Pour over the top.  Bake 35-45 minutes until set (When you take the quiche out of the oven, the middle of the pie should not jiggle)

** A couple of notes:
You really need a deep dish pie crust.  You can either buy a frozen one or pie the refrigerated crust and put it in your own pie pan.
I purchased a package of diced ham in the meat section - it made this a super fast supper!
My husband suggested serving fried potatoes/hash browns with this along with the muffins I made.
