Notes
The Quiche is one of the most favored savory pies in the world. Contrary to rumor, real men DO eat quiche. Technically, it's scrambled egg custard in a pastry crust, with ham; little different than an omelet or scrambled eggs with ham and toast.

Quiches are great for breakfast, lunch, dinner, brunch or a late night supper. For meals other than morning, serve with a cup of soup or salad. For breakfast, coffee, tea, or juice are perfect with a slice of quiche.
