Alright, so you went and made a great big ham, now what? Ham sandwiches for the rest of the week? Personally that doesn't sound like such a bad idea, a little mustard, aged cheddar and some artisan bread, mmm... and yet I know that not everyone is keen on sandwiches every night, so why not try a great and healthy ham quiche? To check out the recipe,
