Spinach Ham & Cheese Quiche

I love quiche. I love it because it's like a blank canvas, just like pizza. You can make so many different kinds of quiche and they are all delicious - always! Today I'm sharing a recipe for Spinach Ham & Cheese Quiche.


I prefer to make quiche in a tart pan, which is different than a pie pan. Tart pans have a bottom that is easily removed, therefore letting the quiche come out easily when cut. It also makes a flatter quiche versus using a pie pan, where it's angled on the bottom, and then you don't get an even filling to crust ratio. The tart pan I used I linked here, incase you don't have one, definitely get one!


This Spinach Ham & Cheese Quiche recipe is so easy to make! And the best part is you can eat this for literally any meal - breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Serve it with a bagel or piece of toast for breakfast. Serve it with a salad or potatoes for lunch or dinner! Recipe for this easy quiche is below.

Tips for making the best Spinach Ham & Cheese Quiche


• Use the correct size pan, make sure to have a 9-inch tart pan and not a 9-inch pie pan, they are completely different. The tart pan is smaller, so if you use a pie pan, you'll be struggling for this to fit inside in a bad way.

• Make sure you use cold butter for the crust, the colder the butter, the flakier the crust!

• Make sure you use pie weights (or beans, rice, or quinoa) - or something to hold your quiche crust in place while par baking. If you don't use one of these items to hold the crust in, it will sink while baking the first time. You need to use a weighted item when par baking because there is nothing inside to hold the dough in place. That's why the weights are important. The par baking is important because the filling is a liquid, the liquid itself won't hold the crust up when baking. So this is why you par bake first, that way the crust is partially baked (that's where the term par bake comes from) and it can stay up on its own to support a liquid filling.

• If your quiche looks giggly, don't be afraid to bake it a little bit longer! If you see it wet or giggly in the center, add 2 more minutes to your timer and go increments of 2 minutes and keep checking it. It should be set when removed from the oven.

• You can bake this quiche a day ahead of when you plan to enjoy it. Just store it in the fridge overnight and you can easily reheat the entire quiche before serving!
