￼ What to do with left over ham? Found this recipe on Betty Crocker's site, an original 1950's recipe for Bisquik but would be better with real homemade crust - reviews on several sites are 5 stars, but most recommend increasing the filling recipe volume for bought crusts.
Ham, Pineapple and Cheddar Quiche
- 3 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
- 1 1/4 cups Original Bisquick™ mix
- 2 tablespoons boiling water
- 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (6 oz)
- 3/4 cup finely chopped cooked ham (4 oz)
- 3 medium green onions, sliced (3 tablespoons)
- 1 can (8 oz) pineapple tidbits in juice, well drained
- 3 eggs
- 3/4 cup half-and-half
- 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 9-inch glass pie plate with cooking spray. In medium bowl, cut butter into Bisquick mix, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until crumbly. Add boiling water; stir vigorously until soft dough forms. Press dough on bottom and up side of pie plate, using fingers dipped in Bisquick mix, forming edge on rim of pie plate.
Sprinkle cheese, ham, onions and pineapple in crust. In medium bowl, beat eggs, half-and-half and pepper until blended. Pour into crust.
Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
Edited to add: You need to add salt to the egg mixture, try at least 1/4 tsp.
@ronott1 You won the guess of what this recipe needed It definitely was salt. I did notice none in the original recipe, but hoped the ham and cheese would over come that.
Baked the frozen one today - compared a little nutmeg vs clove vs just some salt and pepper and the Salt was they key.
Would recommend this adjusted recipe.
