My family loves this cheesy ham quiche on Sunday morning after church. I'm a registered nurse, and I got this recipe from the mother of one of my patients. It's delicious for brunch and not hard to prepare.

"My family LOVES this quiche! It is requested many times throughout the year. I put the bag of hash browns in the fridge the day before and in a colander on the counter the night before. I use a no lint towel to wring out the hash browns. Don't over butter the hash browns for the first baking. I have tried other cheeses and the combo of Swiss and Pepper Jack cheese in the original recipe reigns supreme!"

"I made this for Sunday breakfast and I and it is soooo good. Pretty easy too. I used Fontina for the Swiss and added chopped chives and a small jar of pimento, upped the eggs to three and used half and half for the cream called for in the recipe - Fabulous flavor!!"

"Too much cheese and not enough egg for me to think of this as "quiche". But it has potential... if I were to make it again, I'd halve the cheese and add 2 more eggs."

"We used a combination of colby jack and fontina along with a sweet onion. Easy to make and a good use for leftover ham."

"So easy, gluten-free, and easy to modify. Didn't have heavy cream so I substituted half and half. Used Colby-Jack and Cheddar cheese since that's what I had. Definitely doing again for brunch!"
