1(9-inch)frozen ready-to-bake pie crust(MUST be deep dish)
Fine sea salt and freshly cracked pepper
1 and 1/2cupsdiced/cubed cooked ham(leftover holiday ham or store-bought)
1cupSwiss cheese,freshly grated
1cupCheddar cheese,freshly grated
Optional garnish: chopped chives, cooked and chopped bacon
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place unwrapped frozen pie crust on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Remove and allow to cool slightly.
Melt the butter in a nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add in the diced onion and cook 3-5 minutes or until soft and translucent. Add in the garlic and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Remove, set aside, and allow to cool slightly.
Whisk the eggs in a large bowl until lightly beaten. Then whisk in the half-and-half, Italian seasoning, and salt and pepper to taste.
Gently stir in the cubed ham and both cheeses. Stir in the cooked onion and garlic.
Pour the filling into the pre-baked pie crust (still on the baking sheet) and bake on the lower oven rack for 35 to 42 minutes, or until set and very slightly jiggly in the center.
