Ham & Potato Blender Quiche


If you've been following our blog since the beginning, then you might remember the Crustless Blender Quiche I posted back in 2011 (back when my picture taking skills were very lacking to say the least).  I wasn't really well acquainted with quiche until I married my husband.  And since this blender quiche has been in the family for quite some time it was one of the recipes that was in the recipe book I got from his mom and my bridal shower. I had asked her to write down all of their family favorite recipes when we were engaged so I could learn to make them.  I love having this book!  


Here is the cute book she gave me with several family favorite recipes. It's been the best gift to have so many favorites of the family written down. We enjoy a lot of them on a fairly regular basis.  The quiche is no exception. 

Recently I've been experimenting with different flavors for the quiche - and I've found two favorites. So this recipes varies slightly from the original quiche.  This quiche has mashed potatoes and ham in it.  It's still just as simple to make. 


You start by greasing a baking dish and sprinkling in some diced ham, green onion and some grated cheese. 


Then you top it with a mixture that of blended eggs, milk, salt, pepper, optional seasonings, chicken broth, flour and baking powder (or you can use a hand mixer if you don't have a blender). 



Bake it for about 45-55 minutes until it's golden on top and the egg mixture is cooked through, and serve it up.  {Printable Recipe below}


This is something we generally enjoy for dinner. But it would be equally as good for lunch or brunch! 

Enjoy!

I'd also like to thank Patience Brewster (unique Christmas ornament designer), who posted about the roots to our recipes.  I really enjoyed the read.  This post has inspired me to share lots of other family staples and we have been enjoying for years.  I love connecting our family history to the food we eat. After all, food is what keeps us alive and going and is a huge part of family life and getting together, so I love these old time recipes that we can keep enjoying through the generations! 

Ham & Potato Blender Quiche

Ingredients:

1 ½ cups ham, diced
2 green onions, chopped
½ - 1 cup cheese, grated (Colby or cheddar)
¾ cup mashed potatoes
1 cup milk
½ cup chicken broth
½ teaspoon salt/garlic salt
5 eggs
½ cup all-purpose flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
¼ cup water
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash (optional)


Directions:



1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Grease a 1 ½ to 2 quart size baking dish (9x9 should work great too) with spray grease or butter. Sprinkle diced ham, green onion and cheese evenly over the bottom of the dish.
3. in a 6 cup+ blender (you can also use a hand-mixer and bowl if you don’t have a blender) combine milk, mashed potato, chicken broth, salt, eggs, flour, baking powder, water, pepper and Mrs. Dash or other seasoning of choice.  Blend on high until mixed well.
4. Immediately pour blended mixture over the ham/onion/cheese in the baking dish. (if you don’t the mixture kind of separates, so if you wait a minute or two give it a quick pulse in the blender to incorporate it.
5. Bake for 45-55 minutes or until golden on top and you can stick a toothpick or chopstick in to see if the egg mixture is cooked. Let it cool for at least 5 minutes before serving.
