A simply delicious sourdough ham, cheese and chive quiche served up in a cast iron skillet for a satisfying weekend brunch.
Cast Iron Skillet Quiche
This simple quiche recipe has it all: savory spices, thick cuts of ham and potatoes, and of course, loads of cheddar cheese!
Breakfast never looked so good!
Breakfast skillets are pretty common in this house. But every now and then, I like to take it up a notch or two and make cast iron quiche using a sourdough crust-we always have sourdough on hand.
This quiche recipe that I’m sharing today takes all the “favorite” ingredients from different quiches and compiles them into one easy-to-make breakfast recipe.
Most quiches are made using pie crust, which will work just fine, but since I already had sourdough on hand, I decided to use it for my skillet quiche.
Using a crust to build the quiche in will help it to keep its form when slicing and serving.
Feel free to use any type of crust that works best for you.
Best Skillet Quiche Ingredients
As I said, I took my favorite ingredients from all the common quiches and stuck them in here. This recipe is full of eggs, white cheddar cheese, ham, chives and diced potatoes.
How to Make Cast Iron Quiche
This quiche fits perfectly in a 10″ cast iron skillet. Start by spreading 1 cup of dough (I am using sourdough), but pie crust will also work well in the skillet; spread as thin as possible.
Cube the ham and dice potatoes into about ¼” chunks. Finely chop up chives.
Next, in a glass mixing bowl, add eggs and whisk well. Add the chopped ham, potatoes, chives and cheese. Mix well.
Then, add the mixture into the prepared skillet and place in preheated 375°F oven for about 20 minutes.
Sprinkle with more cheese and continue baking for 5-10 minutes or until done. Let sit for 10 minutes before serving with your favorite sides. We love these honey-butter biscuits.
This quiche is one recipe that is as delicious fresh as it is leftover. Simply reheat in the oven and serve immediately.
Notes: I used leftover ham, but if you want to make your own, check out this recipe here!
