Ham and Spinach Quiche

Cooking time:  60 - 70 minutes for menu      Cooking schedule: see below for "menu"  instructions

      This is meant for after the Baked Ham Christmas Dinner - I'm assuming you have some leftover ham... If not, any meat or no meat will work.  We'll be using the rest of the ricotta next weekend - it will keep. Finish with some leftover dessert (or cookies).

Ham and Spinach Quiche

Total time: 65 minutes 
    The rice makes a lovely crust, much healthier than the traditional pastry... and easier too, especially if you cook the rice earlier.  Use either brown or basmati rice.

Ham and Spinach Quiche Ingredients:


Note:  I usually put the quiche dish on a baking sheet to make it easier to handle – it gets kind of full.
