I used a Pillsbury Pie Crust from the refrigerator aisle and it really shrunk up in the pre-cooking stage, so it may be better to stick with the frozen option! Other than that, this turned out perfectly. Delicious, and we ate it as breakfast for dinner.

I like any pie type recipe that you don’t have to make your own crust. ;). I had some ham left from Easter and this was perfect. Had a hard time finding Swiss cheese so used the gruyere and some havarti.

A lovely quiche using leftover ham. I also subbed thyme for the herbs specified but otherwise made as directed. Served for a light dinner with a tossed salad and rolls. Thanks for sharing!
