Default Spinach, Ham And Cheese Custard


Spinach, Ham And Cheese Custard

main dish, ham

4 cups cooked frozen spinach; drained well,
and packed
1/2 cup chopped onions
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 tablespoon butter
Salt; to taste
Freshly-ground black pepper; to taste
1 pound thinly-sliced ham
1/4 pound provolone cheese
1/4 pound mozzerella cheese
1/4 cup grated parmesean cheese
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1 3/4 cups heavy cream; divided
6 eggs

Butter an 8- to 9-inch round baking dish 4 to 5 inches high, and place a
buttered round of brown paper on the bottom of the dish. Squeeze moisture
out of the spinach; chop. In a saute pan, cook the chopped onions until
wilted in the oil and 2 tablespoons of butter. Add spinach, raise heat to
high, and stirring constantly, cook until moisture is evaporated. Season
and set aside. Cut the ham into 1-inch wide strips, cook until lightly
browned in the remaining butter; set aside. Grate provolone and mozzerella
and combine with the parmesean. Puree the ricotta with 1/2 cup of the
cream. Beat the eggs, then mix with remaining 1 1/4 cup cream; season to
taste. Place 1/3 of the grated cheeses into the bottom of the baking dish.
Drizzle some of the custard mixture on top. Place 1/3 of the ham slices
across the cheese, drizzling a little custard mixture in among them. Place
1/3 of the spinach on the ham; coat with custard. Repeat the layering
twice, pouring custard on each layer (the custard holds the layers
together). Top with waxed paper and foil. Place in a baking pan, pour
boiling water halfway up sides of the dish, and bake for 1 hour in a pre-
heated 350 degree oven. Turn up heat to 400 degrees and bake 30 minutes
longer. Uncover for last 10 minutes. Allow more time if you use a higher
dish. When the custard sides have come away from the edges of the dish, and
when the center tests dry, the custard is done. Place on a rack for 15 to
20 minutes before unmolding onto a serving platter. This recipe yields 12
servings; 6 carb grams per serving. Comments: If you omit the water bath,
the bottom becomes brown, but the flavor stays the same. Use a combination
of meats, such as ham, salami, pepperoni. Make a spectacular buffet dish by
doubling the ingredients and making 6 layers. For thicker layers, repeat
two rather than three times. Serve with a dollop of sour cream as garnish
with a sprinkle of fresh chopped herbs. Source: "Low Carb Diet Recipes at

Is this somehwhat like quiche? If so, I *must* try it. I love quiche but
haven't had any since being diagnosed T2 -- I'm following South Beach plus
no pasta, rice, potatoes, or flour. With "no flour," that has also meant
"no quiche" for me.

You can make any quiche recipe you like.

Just pour the filling into a greased pie pan... no crust.

I would use a bain marie ( a water bath) to cook it so the sides don't burn.

I cook a lot of quiche fillings via the microwave. Or I cook the filling
slowly on low heat in an iron skillet like you would a souffle. And I
haven't used (or eaten) any crust for some time.

Microwave or skillet... both are quicker than the oven. And it also
depends on the filling recipe and which cooking method I think will work
better.
