We all know that it can sometimes be hard to get the kiddos to eat anything that has green in it… but this is kid-approved! 

This make ahead quiche recipe is great for the days where we want something savory for breakfast but I can’t figure out what to make!

In the snapshots I’m sharing in this post, you will see where I made three Ham and Spinach Quiches – one for dinner one night and the other two to toss in the freezer for later!

This is a great cooking activity for your older children! Take this opportunity for them to learn how to crack eggs and measure things out for you! This is a recipe where you can watch and let them take the lead!

Ham and Spinach Quiche

Ingredients: 

For each quiche (Remember: I made three!), you will need one 9-inch pie crust* and the following ingredients:

*pre-made from the refrigerated section of the grocery store works just fine~

Ham and Spinach Quiche - Ingredients by This Little Home of Mine
  • 8 oz. of Cheese (I like to use a mix of mozzarella and sharp cheddar, but anything goes!)
  • Diced Ham  (approximately 1 cup)
  • 3/4 Cup of Milk
  • 4 Eggs, Beaten
  • 8 oz. of Spinach, Thawed (or Cooked) and Drained

You may also want to add salt, pepper, garlic, onions, mushrooms, other seasonings/cheeses/veggies/etc. Honestly, anything goes, and there is no need to be terribly precise about this recipe. 

Step-by-Step Instructions:

 Layer Ham…

Spinach*…

*Frozen and drained works, but so does fresh spinach sautéed with a little garlic and pepper – Yum! Either way, just make sure you drain it well before layering. Warning: Be careful not to burn yourself – it gets hot!

and then the wet mixture.

In a medium bowl, combine milk, eggs, half of your cheese (approximately 4 oz.), any additional seasonings and or veggies you like, etc. and then pour the mixture over the layers of ham and spinach.

After pouring the egg mixture into the pie crust, I usually top everything off with the other half of my cheese.

 One can never have too much cheese. This has actually become my life’s motto.

Next, bake at 375 degrees for approximately 30-40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.

Allow your Ham and Spinach Quiche to cool for approximately 15 minutes or so.

See how I tossed two of my quiches in gallon-size storage bags to pop in the freezer and warm up another night? These make for fantastic freezer meals!

This quiche is delicious served with Angel Hair Pasta & Herbs by Pasta Roni! I would have NEVER thought to put those two things together, but it’s the perfect combination of flavors.

Oh yeah, that’s Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top of everything, because, well…remember my motto about cheese? Ha!
