My mom made quiche w spinach in it, but my kids are picky, so I made it kid kids love it! Great for breakfast or brunch. Filling, a family favorite! Sausage can be substituted, but I find the ham much quicker!

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place room temp pie crust in glass pie pan, crimp edges, then using a fork, poke bottom of crust several times. ( I like to put pan in oven as its preheating for about 10 min., while I prepare other ingredients, to give the bottom of the crust a chance to bake a little before adding the wet ingr.)
