Ham can be the most enduring of holiday meats... it can literally last from Christmas to Easter. The problem lies in what it is usually served WITH (heavy potato dishes and the equivalent). Paired with fresh broccoli, you can feel good about your extra ham in this delicious quiche that can double as a main dish or brunch entree.
Ham has become a tradition at Christmas time. It’s perfect for an elegant main dish at the holiday meal, then it becomes even more useful for sandwiches during the entire month of December through January. We also love it in breakfast and brunch dishes. But once I’ve seen it at all three meals - I’m finished.
What to do with even more ham? I started to crave anything healthy and green a few weeks ago, and this quiche was a great way to ‘hide’ a few cups of leftover ham amongst the green. The tiny amount of rosemary and thyme gave it such an interesting flavor. It was cheesy and satisfying. You can’t go wrong with this tasteofhome recipe.
