Ham and Cheese Quiche or Sausage and Cheese Quiche

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Ingredients for the crust:
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for rolling
  • 1 cup (2 sticks or 8 ounces) regular butter, very-cold, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 6 to 8 Tbsp ice water
Ingredients for the filling:
  • 4 eggs
  • Butter
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 1/2 c. milk
  • 1/4 c. half and half
  • diced ham or crumbled sausage, pre-cooked
  • chunks of parmesan and cheddar cheese

Instructions: Put crust ingredients in food processor and blend, slowly adding water at the end. Cold crust is essential to crispy texture. If your dough is too warm, put it in the freezer for a little while.

Roll out dough using plenty of flour. Grease pan or baking dish and press into pan.

Saute onions on the stove, cool. Raw onion tastes good, too though! Whisk eggs, milk, and half and half. Fold in ham and cheese, and onions.

Put filling in crust and bake for 40 min. on 350 degrees.
