2. Add kale mixture to pie crust. (I prefer Wholefoods' store brand whole wheat crust.) Top kale mixture with diced ham and diced cheese.
3. In a mixing bowl whisk egg, milk, all spice, paprika, and chili flakes, add a little pepper. Pour the egg mixture over other ingredients in pie crust and top with slices of cherry tomatoes.
4. Bake for 20 minutes, then lower the temperature to 350 degrees and let bake for another 15 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool before cutting.
