My family loves eggs Benedict, but some mornings I just don’t have the energy to make it, so I created a super easy spin on eggs Benedict and made it into an eggs Benedict quiche! My family loved it so much that it is now on the Easter and Christmas menu every year! It’s a great recipe because you can make it ahead of time and just heat it up when you are ready to eat it! I usually have this with fresh fruit, bacon, and something sweet (like my Blueberry French Toast casserole!). It is so easy, and everyone devours it!
Eggs Benedict Quiche
- 1 pie dish
- 4 eggs
- 1 pie crust (store-bought or homemade)
- 1/2 cup whole milk
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 cup cheese (whatever your preference!)
- 1 cup cooked ham, chopped or cubed*
- 1 cup green onions*
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1 packet hollandaise sauce (see packet for directions)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a medium-sized mixing bowl, scramble 4 eggs.
- Next, add whole milk, heavy cream, cheese, ham, green onions, salt, and pepper. Whisk everything together.
- Place egg-mixture in the pie crust. Make sure the ham has not clumped together- spread it out if you need to!
- Lastly, tent your pie crust with some aluminum foil. This prevents the crust from burning.
- Place into the oven for 50 - 55 minutes! Make sure to check on it to prevent it over-cooking.
- As the quiche cooks, get started on your Hollandaise sauce. I frequently buy the packet from the store, but feel free to make your own as well!
- Place the sauce on top of your quiche or offer it on the side! Enjoy!
Quiche! How did you know I was craving it?! I am looking forward to my grocery delivery tonight, which has the cream that is stopping me from having prepared this over the weekend!
I love regular onions in quiche, sautéed until soft in a pan before adding them to the mixture to be baked.
Oh my gosh, I love yellow onions! They are cheap and so good sautéed and PILED on pasta (sometimes with a bit of cheese). Also in French Onion soup and liver and onions, and of course, in every stew and pot of beans!
They have probiotic qualities, and contain quercetin, an immune booster. All that and cheap, too! Hope your readers are onion fans, like I am!
This recipe was so good! I had to bake mine for longer fir it to set up! We live in a rural area outside Las Vegas (2 hours) so there’s one gas station! We drive 11/2 hours to church! Anyway the store had Hollandaise in a pkg! Amazing!
This quiche is fantastic! Just made one as a trial run for our egg hunt that’s been postponed due to the weather. Thank you Heather!!
This was a delicious addition to our Easter menu! I used a graham crust and it was a big hit!!
My family absolutely LOVES this quiche! My one and a half year old has been named the Quiche Queen because she loves it so much. We made it for Easter morning but it quickly became a staple for us. It baked perfectly in 45 minutes and I’m SO appreciative of it being “homemade with help” as my mom used to say by using frozen pie crust and the packets of hollandaise sauce. We’re just too busy for EVERYTHING to always be homemade! Loved everything about this recipe!
