Impossible Ham and Cheese Pie

Impossible Ham and Cheese Pie

We are open, busy and enjoying having our guests again.   Over the winter I tried a lot of new recipes and found some really good ones.   If the recipes are just good, I put them in a separate file and only use the very good ones at the Pearl.   This seems to work well for us.   I am always more than willing to share my recipes since I usually get them from friends, cookbooks or the Internet.   It might be a different story if I developed them myself, but that is a skill that I have yet to master.   In the weeks to come, I’ll be posting a gluten free challah bread, Dutch Baby Pancakes, and some new scones recipes.   Attached is the “Impossible” Ham and Cheese Pie (actually a quiche) from the February/March 2013 issue of Cooks Country.   Every time I have made it for my guests, they have asked for the recipe.   You can also find other recipes on our web site Food and Recipes page.   Enjoy.
