searching for suggestions for quiche ingredients

Here in Tokyo a friend and I are cooking together once a week exploring new recipes and techniques. Quiche is on the menu for next week. Any suggestions beyond ham and cheese?
Spinach, lobster, crab, broccoli, zucchini, mushrooms, apple sausage, bacon (Farmer John's, NOT that Japanese stuff we have over here.) etc...
The great thing is that there are soooo many different combinations that can be thrown into a quiche. The above list doesn't even touch on all the different cheeses that can be used!! Both Nissin and Nationl Azabu will have just about everything you would ever want to put in a quiche.
re: Andy P.
I agree most anything can be used in making quiche.
Seafood, cheese, vegetables, cream and chicken stock in any combination.
Also being in Japan can you get some dried shrimp eggs they will lent a interesting favor to the whole dish. Asian fusion style would be interesting to quiche.
My favorite combo: bacon, swiss chard, red onions, gruyere cheese. Like to serve a simple salad on the side.
Quiche is like a sandwich or pizza to me whereby a lot of dif. combos work. Think meat, veg, aromatics, cheese. To give you a few ideas:
Meat: sausage, prosciutto, ham
Veg: spinach, mushrooms, bell pepper
Aromatics: onions, garlic, nutmeg, thyme, parsley, basil
Cheese: swiss, parmesan, ricotta, cheddar, gouda
