Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Melt the butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the ham and cook for 3-5 minutes.
Stir in the cream cheese, hot sauce, Worchester sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, and dry mustard and continue stirring until the cream cheese has melted.
Place this mixture in the pie shell and spread out evenly. Top with 1/3 cup of the cheese and the chives. Set aside.
Add the eggs to a bowl and whisk to combine. Add the sour cream and heavy cream. Whisk again to combine.
Slowly pour the egg mixture over the ham and cheese mixture.
Sprinkle the rest of the grated cheese over the top.
Bake for 50-60 minutes or until the quiche is golden brown on top and the center is almost set but still jiggles just a tiny bit. Let the quiche sit for about 5 minutes and serve.
Sharon's Expert Tips:
You can substitute cooked bacon or sausage for the ham.
If you don't have dry mustard, you can substitute 1/2 tablespoon of Dijon mustard.
I used cheddar cheese in this recipe, but you can use any hard cheese you like. Think gruyere, swiss, manchego, provolone, Monterey jack or gouda. You can even mix it up and include a blend.
