This recipe comes from our article: Stop! Don’t Throw Out Those Christmas Leftovers

Holiday ham is a must at Christmas dinners. Luckily, there are several ways you can repurpose it – ham sandwiches, stews and soups come to mind. But why not try making a quiche out of leftover ham and shredded cheese?

Ingredients

 9 inch frozen deep-dish pie crust
 Head of broccoli, split into florets
 2 tbsp of butter
 Onion, finely chopped
 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
 150 g of ham, diced
 125 g of shredded cheddar
 230 ml milk
 4 eggs, beaten
 Ground pepper and smoked paprika to taste
 A sprinkling of chopped chives

Instructions

1

Preheat oven to 175°C.

2

Press pie crust into 9-inch dish and set aside.

3

Steam broccoli until soft and cooked through. Alternatively, you can cook it in a microwave in a large bowl covered with plastic wrap. Do this at 1-minute intervals for 5 minutes on the high setting.

4

Melt butter in a saucepan and sauté onion and garlic until soft and translucent.

5

Add ham and broccoli. Mix well and add to pie crust.

6

Mix cheese, eggs, milk and pepper in a bowl. Add the mixture to broccoli and ham. Sprinkle paprika and chives on top.

7

Bake for 30 to 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the centre of the quiche comes out clean.
