Apple and Ham Quiche

Apple and ham quiche is a delightful dish that combines the sweetness of apples with the savory goodness of ham in a creamy, custard-filled pastry crust. Here’s a basic recipe for making apple and ham quiche:


  • For the Quiche Filling:
    • 1 9-inch pie crust (store-bought or homemade)
    • 1 cup diced ham
    • 1 cup diced apples (use a sweet variety like Gala or Fuji)
    • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
    • 4 large eggs
    • 1 cup heavy cream
    • Salt and pepper to taste
    • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (optional)
  • For the Crust (if making homemade):
    • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
    • 3-4 tablespoons ice water


  • If making homemade crust:
    • In a food processor, combine the flour and salt. Add the cold, cubed butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually add ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time, and pulse until the dough starts to come together. Form the dough into a disk, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Roll out the chilled dough on a floured surface to fit your pie dish and place it in the dish. Crimp the edges or trim any excess dough.
  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, heavy cream, nutmeg (if using), salt, and pepper.
  • Spread the diced ham and diced apples evenly in the pie crust.
  • Sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese over the ham and apples.
  • Pour the egg and cream mixture over the ham, apples, and cheese.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 30-35 minutes or until the quiche is set and the top is lightly browned. You can test the quiche’s doneness by inserting a knife into the center; it should come out clean when the quiche is done.
  • Remove the quiche from the oven and allow it to cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
  • Enjoy your homemade apple and ham quiche as a delicious breakfast, brunch, or even as a savory snack. Feel free to customize the recipe by adding herbs, spices, or other ingredients to suit your taste preferences.
