Ham and Gruyere Quiche – eggs, milk, sour cream ham, gruyere cheese – can assemble & freeze for later! SO good! We love it for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Believe it or not, Chicken Legs is a huge quiche fan. I haven’t made one in a while, so I thought this was the perfect way to use up the last bit of our Easter ham. This quiche was amazing! It was light and fluffy and wonderfully creamy. Chicken Legs said he could have eaten the whole thing himself. Don’t worry – he didn’t. We had some leftover for lunch the next day and it was even better! Chicken Legs has requested that I make two quiches next time so we have plenty of leftovers.
