Ham, Broccoli and Cheese Quiche
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?


  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



Preheat oven to 175°C.


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


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.


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


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


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


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