Health, Home, and Happiness: Use-It-Up Quiche

Use-It-Up Quiche

Quiche is a good frugal meal that can be adapted to suit what's already in your fridge. Here we have spinach, mushrooms, goat cheese, and garlic. I used three eggs per person for us medium sized eaters. For my big-eater husband, I'd use 5-6 eggs for his 'portion'.

Grease a glass baking dish (9x13 here) with butter, mix eggs, veggies, and seasonings in a mixing bowl and pour in. Top with cheese.  Bake uncovered at 325 degrees for 30 minutes or until the eggs are set.

Other additions:

  • A pie-crust would dress this up. Just make a basic pie crust or biscuit recipe and line the bottom of the dish with it.
  • Crumbled sausage would make it more substantial, and potentially more guy-friendly
  • Sauteed or sun-dried tomatoes
  • Basil
  • Caramelized onions
  • Broccoli
  • Artichoke hearts
  • Different cheeses
  • Olives

Veggies can be sauteed ahead of time to get most of the water out. Here we just mixed them in with the eggs, added some freshly ground sea salt and black pepper, and topped with goat cheese.

Fast, frugal, and uses up odds and ends of veggies from the fridge before grocery shopping day!

I like to add potatoes for my carb loving husband. I use about 2 eggs per person (probably 1 egg for the littles, and 3 eggs for the adults) and some milk or water. Excellent served with a big spinach salad.

Quiche is one of our favorites! I do both crustless and with crust depending on my time and energy level.

I often will make and bake two at a time and then freeze one for later. Then all I have to do is thaw. We can eat it either hot or cold.

My favorite aspect of quiche is how versatile it is and can be eaten at any meal!

I found some great recipes for oat crusts so I can do this totally gluten free. And since I actually ate most of the one in the picture, I know it's good!
