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 (9×13 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!
