To me, Ham and Cheese Quiche make a great brunch. This is something that I like to have when I have something going on for lunch while I am pre-occupied with other chores early in the morning. Besides tasting good, ham and cheese quiche is also filing and gives me the energy that I needed for the first half of my day.
Making ham and cheese quiche is not hard. As long as you have a pastry dough ready, all you need is mix all the ingredients and bake. I usually make my own pastry dough from scratch and place it in the freezer for later consumption. The link on the recipe on how to make pastry dough is provided below. If you do not have time to make pastry dough for yourself, then you can always buy it from the grocery.
