March Recipe – Easy Ham and Cheese Quiche

Simple and filling, a quiche is a wonderful dish that can be served hot or cold. This is a recipe for a ham and cheese quiche but can be modified in any way you like: You can add vegetables such as peas and spring onions, substitute ham for whatever you fancy, make it crustless or with a crust! A quiche is a great way to really use leftovers needing just a few simple ingredients.
