Very tasty. I added a handful of canned kernal corn.

I love pies and quiches since they are great when our friends come home for dinner. In general, I like to replace the standard baked ham with some jamon iberico de bellota - aka iberico ham or patanegra-. It is true that it is more expensive but the taste of the dish really improves making it way more refined.
I buy my iberico ham at Buyjamon.com

BuyJamon.com the market place for iberico ham.
