2) Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas 4. Butter a 23cm pie dish. Spread the pastry out to cover the bottom and sides with your fingers (use flour to help, push the dough from the middle to the sides of the dish). Let the pastry stand a bit higher than the dish edge. Bake the pastry for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from the oven before the pastry shrinks, (adjust sides if needed).
3) Place the ham and cheese in the pastry case. In the meantime, beat the eggs and milk with a fork in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Pour the egg mixture into the pastry case and bake for 30 minutes, until the centre is firm. Serve warm with a salad, if desired
