Gruyere Ham Quiche

This quiche is delicious and elegant and oh so chic! It's the perfect main course for Sunday brunch or as a light and easy summertime supper. The crust is enriched with All-Bran® cereal for a nutty, slightly sweet taste - a perfect counterbalance to the classic filling of savory ham and imported Gruyere. So good, you won't want to save it just for guests!
