April Fool's Day Treat

Although I didn't prepare Easter lunch, we enjoyed a feast at my Mother's table today. Ham is the traditional meat that we enjoy for this holiday meal and  fortunately
for us, we were sent home with the tasty leftovers to enjoy this week.

 There will be plenty of ham sandwiches but for variety, I plan to use part of the left-over ham  for a Hash Brown Quiche that we can enjoy for breakfast,lunch or supper. It might even be a good April Fool's Day treat!

Hash Brown Quiche

3 cups frozen loose-pack shredded hash browns,thawed
1/3 cup butter,melted
1 cup diced fully cooked ham
1 cup (4 ounces)shredded cheddar cheese
1/4  pepper-jack cheese,grated (optional)
1/4 cup diced green pepper
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Press hash browns between paper towel to remove excess moisture. Press into the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 9-in. pie plate. Drizzle with butter. Bake at 425 degrees for 25 minutes.
Combine ham,cheese and green pepper; spoon over crust. In a small bowl, beat eggs,milk,salt and pepper. Pour over all. Reduce heat to 350 degrees; bake for 25-30 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Allow to stand for 10 minutes before cutting. Yield: 6 servings.
Happy April Fool's Day!
