1 (9-inch) frozen ready-to-bake pie crust (MUST be deep dish)
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 medium yellow onion, diced
1 teaspoon minced garlic
4 large eggs
1 cup half-and-half
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
Fine sea salt and freshly cracked pepper
1 and 1/2 cups diced/cubed cooked ham (leftover holiday ham or store-bought)
1 cup swiss cheese, freshly grated
1 cup cheddar cheese, freshly grated
Optional garnish: chopped chives, cooked and chopped bacon
First of all. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place unwrapped frozen pie crust on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Remove and allow to slightly cool.
Step 02, Add the butter to a nonstick pan and melt over medium high heat. Add in the diced onion and cook, 3-5 minutes or until soft and translucent. Add in the garlic and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Remove, set aside, and allow to slightly cool.
After that, In a large bowl, whisk the eggs until lightly beaten. Then whisk in the half-and-half, Italian seasoning, and salt and pepper (to taste; I use a heaping 1/4 teaspoon of each).
