Start with a cup of ham (great way to use up leftover ham).
And sprinkle it over the bottom of a greased deep pie plate or quiche dish.
Now here is the beautifully easy part. The next 9 ingredients are going to be combined in either a blender or food processor.
A cup of sour cream:
A cup of cottage cheese:
A half cup of Parmesan cheese: (I used Kraft. Can't bear to put that expensive freshly grated Parmesan in a blender!)
1/4 cup of flour:
And these spices that are going to make the whole thing! Dry mustard, pepper, nutmeg, and dill weed. Mmmmmmm!
Now, sit back and let your blender process away until smooth.
Grate up a cup of your desired cheese. The original recipe (Southern Living) called for Swiss, but I like the taste of a sharp cheddar.
Now, combine your blended egg mixture with your cheese. At this point, the recipe instructs me to add 1/2 cup of chopped fresh parsley, which would be lovely, but I think the little bits of green dill will be scary enough to a couple of the Kiddos. No sense in totally freaking a child out at dinner time. So, no parsley tonight.
And pour it over your ham.
Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes. Oh, my.
Oh, oh, oh, my! Some adjectives that come to mind are: silky, slightly tangy, soft, savory. (like the alliteration?)
And what shall we have tonight with our quiche? How about homemade hashbrowns and fresh strawberry and cantaloupe salad? Mmmmmmmm!
Crustless Ham Quiche
Sprinkle ham evenly in a greased 10-inch quiche dish. (I used a deep pie plate.) Combine eggs and next 8 ingredients in container of an electric blender. Process until smooth. Stir cheese and parsley into egg mixture. Pour over ham. Bake at 350 for 40 to 45 minutes, or until set. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
