Prosciutto Quiche Italian Style

Quiche is a baked dish that is based on custard made from eggs and milk or cream in a pastry crust. Usually, the pastry shell is blind baked before the other ingredients are added for a secondary baking period. Other ingredients such as cooked chopped Negroni Prosciutto, vegetables, or cheese are often added to the egg mixture before the quiche is baked. Quiche is generally an open pie (i.e. does not contain a pastry covering), but may include an arrangement of tomato slices or pastry off-cuts for a decorative finish. Quiche is predominantly a breakfast dish; however it is more than acceptable to eat it for lunch or dinner.

6 eggs 1 1/2 cup milk (or cream)
1/2 tsp salt pinch ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp cayenne or chipotle pepper
1/2 cup chopped Negroni Prosciutto
1-2 cups grated cheese, a combination of cheddar, gruyere
