Have some leftover ham? Extra eggs? Your family will love Ham & Cheese Quiche for a Crowd!

Have your chickens been working overtime giving you an abundance of eggs?  Have some leftover ham to use?  Want an easy, delicious meal perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner?

I love quiche, it is so versatile.  I love that there are so many ways to make it, I love how easy it is to customize and change up, I even love it warmed up the next day for leftovers.  When ever I make quiche I like to make a nice big one so that I can have leftovers for breakfast or lunch the next day (not always easy with a family of six!).  This recipe is great for a big family, a potluck brunch, or eat half now and freeze the other half for an easy meal later.
