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.

The best and so so easy to make!


This quiche was super-easy to make, and pretty tasty, too. Like others had suggested, I used yellow onions instead of green. I also added fresh-grated nutmeg, which was a nice touch. The recipe calls for a deep-dish pie shell (4 qt. volume). I used a standard 9" pie crust and 2 qt. pie dish and it worked out just fine. Bake time of 45 minutes was perfect.


Everyone in my family enjoys this recipe, even the picky eaters. It's a no-fail recipe.


This quiche is just OK. It was a little dry and needs more flavor. I think either a white or yellow onion instead of the green onion may give it more flavor. AND, a little less flour.


This is my favorite quiche to make! I usually add a little more cheese then the recipe calls for as I love the extra kick it gives. This is my husbands favorite breakfast treat! Another home run VBB!


This is my first attempt at making quiche. I made my pie crust from scratch. The quiche recipe was easy and delicious. I have never used Carnation Evaporated Milk before for baking and will certainly try more recipes using this product.


Excellent recipe! Very easy to make! I tried it 2 months ago and have made it 4 times since then. My 9 year old LOVES it! I make it on Sunday for an easy breakfast before school!
