Sometimes my dad would make this for Easter brunch, sometimes he would make it the weekend after Easter with leftover ham. Either way, it was always awesome and so easy to make.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This brunch pie is an awesome way to use leftover holiday ham. The buttery flaky crust holds an egg and cheese mixture filled with chunks of savory ham. The cheeses and seasoning complement the ham perfectly in this pie. Ricotta cheese and eggs give this pie a different texture. The filling was a little bit softer than a quiche but still firm. It was a great surprise at how yummy it was. We can't wait to make this again.

3

1 lb
