Impossible Quiche (AKA Crustless Quiche)

I can't imagine finding a recipe book as good as the Goodlands community fundraiser recipe book.  There are fancy recipes, suitable for the fanciest events you might host at home.  There are healthy recipes, suitable for the healthiest of lifestyles.  This recipe is one of my mom’s go-to recipes, and has become one of mine too.    It is easy to prepare, not even a little bit messy to clean-up, and if you plan it right, you can have pretty much everything you need in your pantry at all times.

So, here goes – please enjoy, page 108:

Impossible Quiche (AKA Crustless Quiche)

1 cup grated cheese
1 can flakes of ham – chopped
2 green onions, chopped
4 eggs
1 ½ cups milk
2 tbsp softened margarine
½ cup flour
½ tsp salt
Pepper to taste

Butter a 10” pie plate.  Layer cheese, ham, and onions in it.  Combine remaining ingredients in a blender.  Blend for one minute.  Pour over ingredients in pie plate. 

Bake at 350ºf for 40-45 minutes. Let stand 3-4 minutes before cutting.

(Note:  The original recipe calls for: 6-7 slices cooked bacon, crumbled or 1 cup chopped ham instead of the can of flaked ham; 1/2 cup chopped onion instead of 2 green onions; and to process the chopped onion with the items in the blender.  Also, because onions are my enemy, I rarely use them.  But it really does taste better with them.  Lastly, if you want this to be a "mostly pantry items", you can substitute evaporated milk - mix 1/2 canned milk with water, and dried chopped onion.  Imagine - all you'd need to have fresh is butter/margarine!)
