Eggs and Ham Pie

Here is a excellent breakfast or brunch recipe that would be good with grapes and/or other fruits.  My daughter (inlaw) Stephanie made this dish this morning and had us over for breakfast.  This recipe was so good... I'm sure we will do this one again!  You might have to try this one for yourself!   

Stephanie is a great cook, her passion is cooking and baking.  She loves to experiment with new recipes and we love to eat them!  My hat off to this Cook!  We will also be putting some of these recipes on the blog to share will you so you might try them also!

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) and place rack in center of oven. Have ready a 9 inch (23 cm) quiche pan or pie plate. 

Makes 4 to 6 servings.

1 package (14 oz.) frozen puff pastry, thawed (frozen, store bought puff pastry is fine)
 1/2 pound ham, thinly sliced

 7 large eggs
 3 tablespoons green onions, finely chopped
 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
 1/2 teaspoon salt
 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Egg Wash:
 1 large egg, lightly beaten
 1 tablespoon milk
 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

On a lightly floured surface, roll out one sheet of puff pastry to fit the quiche dish or pie plate. After lining the dish with the puff pastry, arrange 1/2 of the ham on top of the pastry. Break the 7 eggs and place on top of the ham. Prick each yolk with a fork but do not stir yolks and whites together. Sprinkle green onions, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper over eggs and top with remaining ham. Roll the second sheet of puff pastry to fit over pan. Cover pie with the second sheet of puff pastry, pinching the two sheets of puff pastry together and then trim off any excess pastry. Gather up leftover scraps and roll out to make cut outs in various shapes. Place on top of puff pastry crust.

Egg Wash: Beat egg with milk and brush the top of the puff pastry. Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese. Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack. Serve hot or cold.
