Frugal Friday...No Crust Ham & Cheese "Quiche"

I actually followed my menu plan for most of the week!  Woo Hoo!  That doesn't always happen.

I mentioned on Monday, that I would try and share Thursday's recipe...Ham and Cheese Quiche ("no crust" recipe), so that's what I will do.

I forgot to take a picture, so I apologize...

This is a recipe that I have used from an old church recipe book, and a similar one is in my Freezer Cooking Manual from 30 Day Gourmet: A Month of Meals Made Easy.  My recipe below is a combination of the two....

No Crust Ham and Cheese Quiche 
(sometimes called "Impossible Quiche")
*4 eggs
*2 cups milk
(or 3 eggs, and 1 1/2 cups milk)
*1 cup ham, cubed (leftover in freezer...yay!)
*1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
*1 cup green peppers, chopped (in my freezer too...replace this with any vegetable...I would have used broccoli...I just didn't have any on hand last night)
*1/2 cup flour
*2 tsp. baking powder
(other recipes call for 1/2 cup Bisquick, then you would skip the baking powder)

Mix eggs, milk, flour, and baking powder in a blender.  Mix together ham, cheese, and green peppers together and place in a 2 1/2 qt. greased baking dish (or quiche dish).  Pour the egg/milk mixture over the top.  Place in a preheated 350* oven and bake for 35 - 45 minutes, until lightly brown on top and set in the center.  Let sit for another 5 minutes before serving.  Salt and pepper to taste.

The reason I am posting this as a frugal post is that I usually have most of the ingredients on hand, and typically they are inexpensive ingredients anyway.

**Just a side note....I didn't even make my 2 youngest eat this last night...my 13 year old cannot stand the texture (or thought of) eggs this way....and my youngest benefited from that....haha....I made them each a protein packed smoothie (yogurt, whey protein, banana, milk) instead.  But....my 15 year old, and my husband both had seconds on my "quiche"....yay!

  1. I followed your link from over at Life As Mom. I love quiche, but often don't have a frozen pie crust so I rarely make it.

    Thanks for posting this recipe! Yum!

  2. If you have ever wondered how to make quiche and thought it was a complex dish to master, you may be pleasantly surprised to discover just how easy it can be to make this tasty recipe. There are actually many different types of quiche recipes; however, all quiche recipes typically include some of the same basic ingredients.
