Gretta’s Ham, Potato & Cheddar Quiche

My mom was staying with us for a couple days and we were both drawn to the quiche recipes in the Kick-Off Brunches section of the new Gooseberry Patch cookbook Game-Day Fan Fare. When I saw Gretta’s Ham, Potato & Cheddar Quiche I knew my meat and potato loving husband would approve!
Ham, Potato & Cheddar Quiche
Start by piercing the sides and bottom of a pie crust with a fork. You can use a store bought crust or here is my recipe for Never Fail Pie Crust. Bake the crust for 5 minutes.
Cook your potatoes and ham in a skillet until brown.
Whisk together your eggs and half-and-half.
Add your seasonings.
Toss the potatoes and ham in your cooked pie shell.
Add your egg mixture.
Top with cheese and bake!
Serve warm with your favorite salad and a cup of fresh fruit!
