Ham & Cheese Quiche
Can we all agree that Breakfast for dinner is with a capital D, "D"ivine. Word.
A typical day for me goes a little something like this
450am - DING DING DING, wake up call! Race to the shower and make myself as pretty as possible.
545am - Wake the little beast and make her pretty, no effort there really. After that I toss her over some milk and a banana and off to daycare we go.
630am - Log in to my PC, 45 minutes later begin work. How slow is your work system? Geeeeeesh!
11am - Lunch
230pm - Dream of what I will be making for dinner, with a side of Indigo. :)
330pm - Off to hit the highways...and well...sit for a bit. San Diego Traffic is well, not the best.
415pm - Get the munchkin, sing all the way home. Mary had a little lamb is high on our play list.
435pm - 30 minute shred workout, while Indigo catches up on Dora & Diego.
500pm - Get dinner started (Quiche recipe to follow!!!)
545pm - Eat the Quiche...recipe is almost here
615pm - Bath time! Wooo hooo, commence to chasing toddler around
645pm - family time, lots of ohhing and awwwing over Indy going on at this time
730pm - time for bed sweet Indy
8pm - Time for all that DVR'd craptastic TV to be watched
3/4 of a bag frozen hash browns, shredded
1/3 cup butter, melted
2 cups cooked diced ham
1 cup shredded Monterrey Jack cheese
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
Squeeze any excess moisture from the potatoes and combine them with the melted butter or margarine in a small bowl. Press this mixture into the bottom and sides of an ungreased pie pan.
Bake at 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) for 25-35 minutes, edges should be brown.
Remove pan from oven and arrange the ham and cheese evenly over the potatoes. In a separate small bowl, beat together the eggs and the cream. Pour this over the ham and cheese.
Return pan to oven and bake for 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) for 30 minutes, or until the custard has completely set.
AND LET'S GIVE A SHOUT OUT TO BREAKFAST FOR DINNER YA'LL, BECAUSE WHEN 3 PEOPLE CAN PUT DOWN A WHOLE QUICHE...ONE OF THOSE PEEPS ONLY BEING 3FT TALL...WELL THEN YOU KNOW YOU HAVE A GREAT MEAL.
