Sunday Brunch

How to make the best meal of the week even better.

Ham and cheese might be best known as a quick sandwich staple, but the classic duo makes an equally crowd-pleasing filling for a simple quiche. Quiche is one of those dishes that's easy to prepare, but somehow seems a bit fancy, which makes it ideal for brunch. Here, I partner cubed ham and Swiss cheese.

During the summer, this quiche can be an excellent addition to a picnic basket as well, especially because room temperature quiche is, in my opinion at least, better than a hot piece straight out of the oven. If you're planning a picnic brunch, make it the night before; by the time you're settling down on your blanket and pouring your first mug of tea, the quiche will be ready to slice and serve.
