Ham n Cheese Quiche

I have a neighbor who is keeping us supplied with green onions this summer. I love to cook with green onions and I had been thinking about what to use them in and I thought of quiche. I haven't had any for years and never have made it so I started looking at reciepes and of course there are many. So here is what I used tonight and it was very easy and really good:
1 pastry shell
1 c. diced cooked ham (or turkey or sausage)
1 c. Cheddar, grated
1 c. Swiss cheese, grated
4 eggs
1/2 c. half & half
1/2 c. milk
1/2 tsp. salt
3 green onions white and green parts sliced thin
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spread diced ham over the bottom of pastry shell. Sprinkle with about half the cheese reserving several tablespoons of each cheese for the top of quiche.
Lightly beat the eggs with a wire whisk. Add the cream and seasonings and onions and blend until smooth. Set the shell on a cookie sheet, carefully pour in the mixture. Sprinkle with reserved cheeses. Bake at 375 degrees in center shelf for 30 minutes or until top is puffed up and browned or a knife inserted in the center of custard comes out clean.
Remove from oven and carefully slide onto a wire rack for 5-10 minutes. Garnish and serve hot.

This turned out really good and I fixed some roasted brussel sprouts to go with it:
1 bag baby brussel sprouts thawed and cut in half.
4 slices of bacon
fry the bacon until almost crisp. Spread the sprouts in a oven safe pan and drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper and some old bay and few spoons of the bacon grease. Crunch up the bacon and mix in with the sprouts. Roast in 375 deg. oven about 20 min. or until done. Serve hot.
