Chopped ham, cheddar cheese, and aromatic garlic baked in a creamy egg mixture. This simple to make gluten-free crustless ham and cheddar quiche tastes amazing and leftovers can easily be frozen for another meal.
Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 5-6 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup chopped cooked ham
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 large eggs, cracked and beaten
  • ¼ cup 2% milk
  • ¾ cup whole milk (or half and half)
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • Chopped chives or scallions for garnish
Directions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Lightly grease a 9 inch pie dish with nonstick cooking spray or olive oil.
  2. In a small skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat for a minute before adding the minced garlic. Cook the garlic until they become aromatic and golden brown. Place the minced garlic at the bottom of the pie dish.
  3. Place chopped ham over the minced garlic in an even layer.
  4. In a medium sized bowl, beat the eggs. Then whisk together with 2% milk, whole milk, and a little bit of salt until incorporated. Pour the egg mixture over the chopped ham.
  5. Scatter shredded cheddar cheese on top.
  6. Sprinkle chopped chives or scallions over the cheese if desired.
  7. Bake the quiche in the oven for about 50-55 minutes until the top is browned and the center seems firm.
  8. Allow the quiche to cool for a few minute before slicing.
  9. Serve the quiche warm.
