NOTE: To manage lactose restrictions, substitute Carnation® Evaporated Milk with Carnation® Lactose-Free Evaporated Milk in any recipe. Our Lactose-Free Evaporated Milk has a sweeter profile than regular Evaporated Milk, so you may notice a slightly sweeter profile to your recipe. To manage dairy restrictions, substitute Carnation® Evaporated Milk with Carnation® Almond Cooking Milk in any recipe. Some recipes, such as our Libby’s Famous Pumpkin Pie, turn out best with a different amount of Almond Cooking Milk.

Ingredients

  • 1 unbaked 9-inch (4-cup volume) deep-dish pie shell
  • 1 cup (4 oz.) shredded Swiss cheese, divided
  • 1 cup finely chopped, cooked ham
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 can (12 fl. oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

Instructions

PREHEAT oven to 350° F.

SPRINKLE 1/2 cup cheese, ham and green onions into pie shell. Whisk together evaporated milk, eggs, flour, salt and black pepper in large bowl. Pour mixture into pie shell; sprinkle with remaining cheese.

BAKE for 45 to 50 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack for 10 minutes before serving.

VARIATION: For a lattice-top quiche, use ready-made pie pastry for single crust pie. Cut pastry into 1/2-inch-wide strips. Lay pastry strips over filling in lattice-fashion, turning pastry over outside edge of dish. Bake as directed above.

FOR MINI-QUICHE APPETIZERS, use 1 1/2 packages (3 crusts) refrigerated pie crusts. Grease miniature muffin pans. Unfold crust on lightly floured surface. Cut fourteen 2 1/2-inch circles from each crust. Press 1 circle of dough into bottom and up sides of each cup. Repeat with remaining crusts. Combine cheese, ham, green onions, 2/3 cup (5 fl.-oz. can) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk, 2 eggs (lightly beaten), 2 tablespoons flour, salt and black pepper in large bowl; mix well. Spoon mixture into crusts, filling 3/4 full. Bake in preheated 350° F. oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until crusts are golden brown. Cool slightly; lift quiche from cup with tip of knife. Serve warm or cool and freeze for later entertaining. Makes 3 1/2 dozen.
