St. Patrick’s Day Quiche

St. Patrick’s Day Quiche

Serves 8

Filled with sautéed cabbage and onions, and dotted with Irish cheddar and salty ham, this quiche pays homage to one of our favorite spring celebrations. Tasty for brunch or an easy dinner, it’s a great use for leftover spiral-sliced ham.

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 cups chopped green cabbage
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 (9-inch) whole wheat pie crust, in its tin
  • 5 ounces ham, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (about 1 cup)
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (about 1 cup)

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add cabbage and onion and cook, stirring often, until golden and tender, 10 to 12 minutes; set aside to cool until warm.  

Brush mustard over bottom and sides of crust, and arrange ham in crust. Whisk together half-and-half, salt and eggs in a large bowl, and then stir in onion mixture and cheese. Pour evenly over ham  and bake until golden, firm and cooked through, 50 to 60 minutes. Set aside to let rest for 20 minutes and serve.
