Ham, Cheese and Mushroom Quiche

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by bluemoon downunder

I've adapted this recipe from one which featured in the pre-Christmas 2008 Australian magazine 'New Idea' as an excellent way to give new life to various leftovers from the Christmas Day meal, in this case, leftover leg ham. This recipe can, of course, be made at any time of year, with leftover ham or ham bought specifically for making this recipe. The preparation time below includes the time needed to bake and cool the pastry case. The other recipes posted from this collection are Roast Potato Tortilla, Roast Beef, Blue Cheese and Caramelised Onion Bagels and Char Siu Pork Pancakes.

Bluemoon, This was the most delicious quiche I have ever made! Absolutley worth every minute of cooking. This is a stunner. I served this to my PTO officers at the 1st meeting of the year with my Recipe #341044 and iced tea with mint. Perfect lunch! Everyone went home with the recipe and the website address.
