Ingredients

  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup half and half
  • 1/2 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onion
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1 cup diced cooked thick cut ham
  • 1/2 cup diced yellow onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh baby spinach, chopped
  • 19inch pie crust
  • 1/2 cup shredded white sharp cheddar cheese

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Add the eggs, half and half, hot sauce, green onion, salt, and pepper to a large mixing bowl. Whisk together until well combined and set aside.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the avocado oil and then add the diced ham. Cook the ham for 2-3 minutes just until it begins to brown.
  4. Next add the garlic and onion. Sauté for another 3-5 minutes until the onion is translucent.
  5. Add the baby spinach to the skillet, sauté for a minute until the spinach is wilted, and then remove the skillet from the heat.
  6. Pour the ham and spinach mixture into the pie crust and then top with sharp cheddar cheese.
  7. Pour the egg mixture evenly over the quiche filling. You may need to spread the green onion out a bit evenly. Bake the quiche at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes until crust is golden brown and the egg is set.
  8. Remove from the oven and let sit for 10 minutes before slicing.
