After Christmas we had so much leftover ham. Even the smallest ham is too much for two people, so after eating ham for some days and getting bored of it, I decided to make a quiche lorraine with what was left and it was delicious! Next time instead of eating it for a lot of days I will make more things with it, I already have a few ideas.
Cheese and Christmas ham quiche Lorraine
300ml (160 g) flour
125 g cold butter
3 tablespoons of cold water
200 g cheese (I used gouda)
400 g Christmas ham or normal ham or bacon (about 4-5 slices) or maybe cooked chicken or pork
½ cup milk
½ cup cream
Salt and pepper
Start by preparing the pie crust. Cut the butter in pieces. In a big bowl, put the butter and the flour and turn it into crumbles with your finger or u can do the same in a food processor. Add the water, wok t until it comes together and put it in a round pie from (about 26 cm) that you have greased and floured. You apply the dough to the pan with your hands by pressing it. Pinch it all over with a fork and out it in the fridge for half an hour. Preheat the oven to 225 o C/ 435o F. Prebake your pie for ten minutes then take it out and let it cool while you prepare the filling.
Cut the ham and the cheese into cubes and spread them on the pie crust. In a bowl, beat the three eggs, add the cream and the milk, salt and pepper beat a little and pour on the cheese and ham. If you want you can put sprinkle on the top with a little grated cheese. Bake in the middle of the oven for 30-40 minutes in 200 C/ 400 F. Take it out of the oven let it rest for 5 minutes and serve.
