Make-Ahead Tip: Quiche can be made a day in advance, wrapped in plastic wrap in pan, and refrigerated overnight. Remove from pan, cut into squares, and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Heat in a 350° oven until warm, approximately 10 minutes.

*Use a firm-textured ham such as a ham steak or a smoked ham chop. Prepare according to package directions, and then blot dry on paper towels.
