Ham-Cheese Pie

Recipe by KerfuffleUponWincle

This great quiche recipe is from The Collector's Cookbook (tear-out) of Woman's Day magazine, April 1975 edition. It is a great way to use leftover ham, and makes an easy brunch dish.

Yummy! This was a very tasty dish, but loved how versatile this recipe really could be. You could really through in any kind of cheese or veggies or sausage, etc. I loved it the way it was though. It was very easy to through together, the hardest part was waiting for it to cook! :) Thanks for posting! Made for Photo Tag.
