Basic 'use-It-Up' Quiche

Basic 'use-It-Up' Quiche created by Derf2440

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!

    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.

    This was so good, and I love this recipe because you can absolutely use anything that you want in it. The crust was a great idea too, I really liked it because I'm not a big fan of pastry type crusts. I used roma tomatoes, potatoes, yellow and green onions, fresh baby spinach, fresh basil, and fresh rosemary topped with mozzarella and parmesan cheese. It was sooooo good. Thanks for posting!
