It had been quite some time since I'd made a quiche, so I opted for my ham and swiss option, but also threw in some spinach for good measure. It turned out super yummy, and really fluffy since I used the remaining half and half that I had in the fridge.

HAM, SWISS, SPINACH QUICHE
1 cup half and half (whole milk works well)
*1 cup cubed cooked ham
1 ½ cups grated swiss cheese
3/4 cup shredded fresh spinach leaves
dried minced onions
* I purchased a small ham steak and cubed it myself. I've tried to use the pre-cubed, but the ham is always pretty wet and I found it made the crust soggy.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and half and half. Add the seasonings and whisk until they're fully incorporated. I didn't measure what I used, but I would say it was probably about 1 tsp. of onions and parsley and 1/2 tsp. of pepper, salt and garlic....add more or less, per your liking.
Place the empty pie shell on an aluminum foil lined baking sheet. Place about 1/3 of the shredded spinach into the bottom of the pie shell, layer in about 1/3 of the ham and top with 1/3 of the cheese. Continue until all the ingredients have been added. Pour the egg mixture over the top.
Bake for approximately 35-40 minutes, until lightly browned.
Removed from the oven and let sit about 15 minutes before attempting to slice.
