Quiche

Quiche is on the menu here every weekend, it also happens to be one of my favorite go to meals to use up leftovers. I've heard so many people over the years say that they (or more often their husbands) won't eat leftovers. I've never had a problem with leftovers, neither has my husband or kids, mostly because I generally don't serve the same meal reheated for two or three days in a row. I love creating new meals with leftovers, and have encouraged anyone who said they don't eat leftovers to use them to create new meals too. Those leftover hating husbands wouldn't even know it was leftovers with just a teeny bit of creativity. 

Bacon, Shrimp and Scallop Quiche


Quiche is perfectly fitting for any meal - breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner. Add some fresh fruit or a salad on the side and you're ready to go. 

I usually use store bought refrigerated pie crust for a 9 inch pie pan, it's the closest to homemade. If you prefer homemade, knock yourself out. I chop and add whatever leftovers I have that work well together - a little or a lot, doesn't really matter with quiche. Whisk 5-6 eggs with 1 cup of whole milk, pour over the top. Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes and serve. It doesn't get much easier than that - new meal created, and oh so yummy!

  1. I absolutely LOVE quiche....although I can't put the seafood in it. My husband refuses to try it, even a forkful. I keep telling him it's like an omelet but he refuses. Oh well. All the more for me. :D It's great for breakfast, or with a side salad.

    1. I love quiche too. Your husband probably remembers that old saying from many years ago "Real men don't eat quiche," maybe you can call it a savory pie to get him to try it. :D

  2. TOO funny that we both posted quiche today. Between quiches, frittatas, stew, soups and C.O.R.N. all our leftovers get eaten too.

    1. So true. That same conversation is how we started Our Krazy Kitchen years ago. Remember? :)

  3. Yummy on the quiche! I haven't made one in a bit, but they always come out so good! Thankfully hubby is not so picky with what goes on the table. We have come to the place in life where we cook just 3 days a week and eat leftovers the other 3 and go out on Friday. It works out so easily and conveniently :)

    1. I'm not sure I even cook that often these days between leftovers, our trips to Fort Lauderdale (where I have a kitchen but never cook) and we always bring back extras too. The food there is just so good!

  4. Your quiche sounds delicious ! I have made ham and bacon but never really thought about using whatever else I have in leftovers. Great idea! I think I'll be making it more often now!

    1. Definitely, this seafood quiche was delicious! I've used all kinds of combos, chicken and broccoli, steak and asparagus, even just leftover veggies! :)
