Ham and Tomato – Name a more iconic duo. I dare you!!

It is delicious on crackers, sandwiches, why not in a quiche. Buttery flakey (cheesey) pastry topped with a light and delicate eggy filling. There is a reason Quiche’s are so popular.

Instead of all the cream and cheese in traditional quiches, I like to keep it light! Substitute milk for cream, and cottage cheese for the cheddar. Every tried baked cottage cheese? NO – well then you are seriously missing out!
