Ham & Cheese Quiche


I missed this lesson during baking class as I wasn’t in Singapore. But nevertheless, I tried out the recipe by myself. Everything turns out fine and good ! Except for the crust which can be thinner, the filling is great for a quiche and the ham and cheese combi are just my favourites. I have ran out of mushrooms then so had to do without them. Personally I feel that anything with warm melted cheese tastes good, be it lasagne, baked rice or good pizza. So this quiche is an addition to my list of cheesey delights. HB gives me a suggestion to make a spinach quiche. Maybe the next round I will try. Maybe. If time and mood allows. I can be a couch potato at times. :)
