If you are trying to find ways to creatively use your leftover ham, today’s breakfast quiche will be just what you are looking for. Quiche has always been one of my favorite breakfast meals because it combines eggs, and meat all in a flaky pie crust. I have often made a vegetarian variety and used spinach instead of ham and it still makes it delish!!
