Basic 'use-It-Up' Quiche

Perfect recipe for using up leftovers! If you have eggs, milk, rice and cheese, you can practically clean out your fridge right into your quiche pan. Sometimes I even add some leftover meat. It can be served fresh hot or cold or freeze it for a quick, easy meal during the week!

Axe, This recipe was easy to make and made excellent use of leftover veggies and rice, but suffers a little in it's blandness. I would make it again, but next time with the addition of some fresh herbs. I have, and have tried many similar recipes and while this one is not at all bad, it is not quite in the hemisphere's of my 4 or 5 star ratings ... (once you have been on Zaar a while you will find you get more demanding of recipes). That said, it's ideal for kids and was a lovely recipe for a week day dinner. Definiately very edible, just lacking raves. I will certainly make it again, Please see my rating system, a very respectable 3 stars:) Thanks !

Turned out great for breakfast. Didn't have 2 c. rice but probably 1+ c. so added 2 T. flour for the crust. Added mushroom, onion and red pepper for the veggies which I sautéed for a few min. Then added half a can of green chills. Added 1/2 t. cumin to the 3 eggs and 3/4 c. milk. It filled up the pie plate so couldn't have used all four eggs. Topped with Mexican cheese, baked for 33 min. served with a slice of ham.

This recipe is a very good starting point! I used a sweet red pepper, an aneheim pepper, mushrooms, scallions, and minced garlic. I did alter/add more spices, such as 1/4 tsp of cumin and 1/4 tsp of garlic powder to the egg and milk mixture. Also, I think next time I will try adding a little flour to the crust mixture so it doesn't crumble as much. Other than these 2 alterations, the recipe is a good one! My taste-buds were thrilled.
