Ham and Gruyère Quiche

Hello fellow foodies! I hope you all had wonderful holidays. I know I did. I saw my friends and family and of course, I did plenty of baking. In fact, I baked so much that I was exhausted! I had to take a break for a few days but now I’m in full baking mode.

There are a bunch of recipe contests coming up that I’m excited about. One contest has a breakfast for dinner theme. Yum! I love everything about breakfast. Eggs, cheese, meats, and fruits are a few of my favorite ingredients. These are often combined in a variety of ways such as danishes, casseroles, and quiche.

Today’s post features a recipe for a delicious quiche that is sure to wow your tastebuds. I have combined ham and Gruyère cheese to make a fabulous breakfast for dinner meal that will leave your tummy full and happy. It is easy to prepare and can be made ahead of time and reheated.

I’m looking forward to sharing more tasty recipes and hope that you’ll find something that inspires you.

Have a great day!

😉 Jennifer
