Ham, Cheese, Kale, Potato Quiche

Hi Everyone,

As I mentioned in my previous post, there were two very popular requests for recipes from my personal Facebook page this week, and the first recipe I posted yesterday was for the Roasted Eggplant Pizza. Today I am sharing a recipe for Ham, Cheese, Kale, and Potato Quiche.

This was very easy and can be put together quickly with any combination you choose. I had leftover ham that I didn’t use from making split pea soup, some kale, two potatoes, and some cheese in the refrigerator and it all came together and gave me the inspiration to make a quiche.

I am one of those people that could eat any type of quiche and a salad for lunch every day and never get tired of it. I have been known to rummage through the veggie bin toward the end of the week and find ingredients for a weekend quiche. This particular quiche was exceptionally delicious.

I hope this recipe inspires you to start experimenting with ingredients and start making a weekly quiche for yourself.

Add this mixture to the kale, ham, and potatoes. Pour into a deep-dish pie pan sprayed with cooking spray.
