Also known as “I don’t want Earl’s Baby Pie”.
1 pie crust – frozen flaky and easy
1 1/2 to 2 cups chopped cooked ham
8 green onions
2 tbsp butter
1 cup Brie cheese (about one wheel)
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup Heavy Cream
1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
Butter to saute onions
1- Pre-heat oven to 350. Pre-bake your homemade crust for ten minutes covering edges with foil to prevent browning. Frozen crust dough laid in a pie tin should be slightly warmed to get the bottom toasty. This prevents the quiche from being soggy. I always pre-bake crusts for quiche for this reason. Your choice, but highly recommended. Leave your oven on Ladies. Answer the phone and talk to your best friend.
2- Place a dab of butter in a skillet and tender the onions until slightly translucent. At this point (not completely softened) add the chopped Ham. Warming it as you complete the onions.
3- Remove from heat allowing a slight cool off while you remove the rind from the Brie and chop it up into cubes. Place Ham & Onions into pie shell. Scattered Brie cubes around the top.
4- Mix egg cream and nutmeg. Pour of ingredients inside pie crust. Sprinkle the Parm now.
5 -Place your tin on a cookie sheet. This is more to save your oven than aid in the baking of the pie. Slip that into your gurney for at least 35 minutes or until a knife inserted into the Baby.. uh.. Pie comes out clean as a whistle!
There are several versions online for this recipe, but this one seems to hold together and actually be the perfect brunch quiche. It is not difficult to put together and has a smoky flavor but is not over powerful for those pregger moms.
I dedicate it to my BFF Brownie per our early morning Bad Baby Discussion that centered around Pregnant and Pissy. I can’t tell you how much I love that woman.
