Leftovers are a lifesaver when it comes to making healthy lunches for my kids to take to school. A quick and easy leftover lunch I like to make is Ham, Tomato & Basil Quiche. It's filled with nutritious veggies and it tastes delicious. I actually make two quiches at the same time (one for dinner and one for lunches) so I get two meals checked off my list at once. 

To go along with the quiche, I add some of my kids' favorite treats to the other compartments of their Bentgo Kids lunchboxes. Who doesn't love ants on a log? My kids have been loving pecan butter (, so I use that. These hold well overnight so you can make them ahead of time and store them in a container in the fridge. We also really like dried cranberries on our celery.

Prepping for this quiche recipe is simple and fairly quick. So, let's dive in.

Ham, Tomato, and Basil Quiche Recipe

In a bowl, mix all ingredients together.

Pour into the pie crust and cook 35 minutes or until egg has set.
