How to make ham and zucchini Quiche 

Ham and Zucchini Quiche is a very tasty savory pie, very simple to prepare, fast, and appreciated by all! The fragrance of the puff pastry shell is broken up by the creaminess of the cheese filling, which acquires a delicate and very tasty taste with courgettes and ham.

This delicious rustic cake is excellent both warm and cold, it can also be kept for the following day, when the flavors harmonize even more and express an even more intense taste.

Ham and zucchini Quiche is an exquisite quiche to prepare in a few minutes for dinners or buffets. It is a recipe to be enjoyed all year round, but especially in the summer as it is the season for fresh courgettes.

What better recipe than a quiche with zucchini paired with cooked ham, a combination that I always like a lot because it makes it appetizing, tasty, and tasty. I highly recommend it because it is simply fantastic.

In addition, Ham and zucchini Quiche is beautiful to look at: in the shape of a rose, it will amaze all your guests!

My sister-in-law made it for me and I fell in love with it at first sight and even more so at the first bite! I immediately asked her for the recipe!

The courgettes must be cut very thin with the mandolin or the potato peeler and then stuffed all raw and off in the oven to bring so much beauty to the table.

Unwrap the puff pastry and pose it on a round baking tray (keep the baking paper). Put in the fridge for 15 minutes.

Clean the zucchini and remove the extremities. With a potato peeler, cut the zucchini into very thin slices.

Cut the cheese into thin slices. Cut the slice of ham in a way that they have the same size as the zucchini.

Take the puff pastry out of the fridge. Lay on it one slice of zucchini, one of ham, and one of cheese. Wrap it. Pose them on the puff pastry to form a spiral. 

Do the same with the other ham/zucchini/cheese. 

In a bowl, put the eggs, add salt and black pepper, and mix with the milk. Pour it on the puff pastry, between the ‘spiral’.

Cove with baking paper and cook on a pre-heat at 180 C (356 F) for 40 minutes (the baking paper on the top of the pie shall be removed after 25 minutes).

Let the pie to cool down a little bit before serving it (this will help the Quiche to keep its form).

Suggestion: if you like to eat very soft zucchini, put for few seconds the zucchini slices in hot water before using.

Enjoy! Buon appetito!
