Ham, White Cheddar, Mushroom and Green Onion Quiche

I love Quiches and my husband does as well, even though "real men don't eat Quiche" he is a real man who does eat Quiche!   I had a hunk of Ham leftover and decided it had been awhile since I had made a Quiche.

I had some Green Onions, Mushrooms and I was all set.  I still cannot make a decent pie crust so I use pre-purchased ones.  I do not pre-bake my pie crust, do you?  I did put a pizza stone in the oven and placed the Quiche on top of it, I hope it makes the crust nice and crispy.  I also used Egg Substitute and only two eggs.

1.5 Cups of Diced Ham
4 Green Onions sliced (green parts included)
2 big or 4 small Mushrooms, I used Crimini
1.5 small size containers of Egg Substitute
2 large Eggs
1/4 cup of half and half or milk
2 Cups of Cheese, I used a sharp white cheddar
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 tsp Cayenne
few shakes of Tarragon

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, place pizza stone in the oven if you have one

Place the Ham, Green Onions, Mushrooms and Cheese into your uncooked pie crust, try to even it out

Mix the eggs, egg substitute, milk, salt, pepper and spices, using a whisk mix well

Place in the oven for 40 minutes, checking for doneness, it should not wiggle around.  My Quiche took well over an hour to cook.

Let cool and serve.  This Quiche is good for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
