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 customize. I love it warmed up the next day for leftovers.  Whenever I make quiche I like to make a nice big one so that I can have leftovers for breakfast or lunch the next day.  This recipe is great for a big family, a potluck brunch, or to eat half now and freeze the other half for an easy meal later.

Put the dough in a 9×13 casserole dish, and poke the bottom with a fork.  Bake the crust in 375-degree oven for 7 minutes.

Pinned to our group board, and to my personal board too, because this looks good! I'm still waiting on my hens to pick up production, but I love a good quiche too. Thanks for sharing on the Homestead Blog Hop!
