cheesy ham and onion pie

Easter is still a couple weeks away and already I’m thinking about what to do with all that left over ham! This is one of our favorites and one I know you’ll love too! Teaming ham with potatoes, onion and Swiss cheese, this cheesy ham and onion pie boasts an incredible flavor, and one slice will not be enough! You can enjoy it hot from the oven or chilled, as you prefer.

This pie uses homemade pastry which is not hard to prepare, and the filling is simply seasoned – salt, pepper and garlic are the only seasonings we are using, because the ham, potatoes and cheese already deliver so much flavor.  Up the poultry to a half dozen eggs and you’ve got the best EVER quiche, perfect for guests or just a Sunday brunch! You can’t go wrong any way you do it!
