Ham and Cheese Quiche- $10.00 Meal

This is another bonus recipe, because it makes two. I think with some of my savings from other days, the total should still be okay, but this is the most expensive meal so far. It is however, something different. That is really what I wanted more than anything else. So, enjoy!

2 (9 inch) pastry shells (Pillsbury 2 for @ 2.00)
2 cups diced fully cooked ham ($2.69)
2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese ($2.99)
1 onion chopped (purchased earlier)
4 eggs ($2.75 - cage free/ grain fed)
2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Line unpricked pastry shells with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake at 400 degrees F for 5 minutes. Remove foil; bake 5 minutes longer.

Saute Ham and onion on a skillet. Then, divide ham, cheese and onion between the shells. In a bowl, whisk eggs, milk, salt and pepper.

Pour into shells. Cover and freeze for up to 3 months. Or cover edges with foil and bake at 400 degrees F for 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 5-10 minutes before cutting.

Serve with jar Cinnamon apple sauce ($1.39)

Grand Total: $11.82 (without milk) - so price wise it was a BUST, but it should average out during the week
