I found this recipe in Woman's Day like 10 years ago. This is a great way to get spinach into your diet without the taste. My family hates spinach and you can't even taste it in this great recipe! Plus it is a great way to use your leftover ham from holiday parties!

Thank you. I have never made a quiche before and was always intimidated by the thought of it being complex. This was easy and very good. I doubled the recipe and added half bacon instead of all ham. It was shared with 5 other families who all ate it and loved it and asked where I got the recipe.
Very Good- I ended up using two 9" pie crust and splitting the ingredients between the two.
I loved the flavor of this quiche, and it was so pretty with the tomato slices on top. It was simple to make and relatively low fat (when compared to most quiche recipes). It was a little runny at first, but Kennasmommy had advised me to let it set before slicing. That did the trick. In the future, if I need to serve it right away, I would probably cut back a little on the milk, or use heavier cream to prevent that. Great choice for Pick A Chef Fall 2007.
