Several months ago, I slapped together some white cheddar ham and spinach quiches on one of those “what do you want to eat tonight/I dunno, what do you want” nights. There wasn’t anything special about the recipe itself, just standard eggs + meat + veggies + cheese. The cheese, however, was something extraordinary.
Aldi’s rotates their stock, and we were fortunate enough to be shopping when they had “Special Reserve Aged White Cheddar” in the dairy section. On this particular night, I grated a block into the fateful quiche. We now fondly refer to this white cheddar cheese as the miracle cheese.
Despite it being months ago, Brandi still sings my praises when she recalls this quiche. Now I’ll share it with you, so your honey can sing my praises too…even though it’s just the cheese.
- 6 eggs
- 16oz block of Special Reserve Aged White Cheddar (or equivalent white cheddar)
- 8oz chopped ham
- 10oz chopped spinach
- Crust of your choice (we used a pre-packaged Pillsbury Gluten Free Crust)
- Prepare crust and pie dish according to package directions.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Beat the eggs and the spinach.
- Grate the cheese.
- Mix the cheese into the eggs and spinach. It should look like a thick custard.
- Drop in the ham.
- Mix, then pour into the crust.
- Bake at 350F about an hour or until an inserted knife comes up dry and egg free.
This week I reintroduced the aged white cheddar into our weekly crustless quiche casserole. It earned me many quichey kisses. Huzzah!
Live long and prosper.
