A Use-it-up meal

I meant to take a picture FIRST, but quiche doesn't last long around here.

Quiche is a regular at our house. Typically we have it with squash and spinach, but it is great for using up whatever you have lying around. This one had random chopped up potatoes, squash, and red peppers that were left over from kabobs earlier in the week, plus a ton of green tomatoes. Doodlebug loves to pick tomatoes, but she's not big enough to understand that you are supposed to wait until they're red. :o) So we had green tomato quiche.

Quiche is really a super easy meal. Make a pie crust (I use an oil pastry because it's fast). Throw in random veggies. Top with cheese. Pour beaten eggs and milk over the top and bake. For a really detailed method you can see the article in The Complete Tightwad Gazette.


  1. I loooooove quiche. Care to share your crust recipe?

  2. I use a basic oil pastry recipe from The Better Homes and Gardens cookbook, so I can't really share as it's not mine. It never turns out pretty; usually it's quite a patch job, but it's fast and yummy.
