When in doubt, make quiche.

My kids have grown up eating quiche- usually tuna quiche, because that was what I grew up eating.
I've now expanded my palate horizons to include just about anything in a quiche. The basic recipe is always the same- protein on the bottom, then a cheese, veggie and finally beaten eggs poured on top. Bake.
Quiche has become my catch-all to use up leftovers in the fridge. I just adjust the cheese and vegetable to compliment the protein. Example- I had left over cooked italian sausage from the pizza making the night before. So, I made a quick pastry from a 70-year
old recipe a friend gave me (makes the flakiest crust EVER!), put the sausage on the bottom of the pastry, grated on some sharp cheddar cheese, added diced white onion, some garlic powder then poured a couple beaten eggs with evaporated milk on top. Bada boom,
dinner was made! I made two (because the beast can eat almost one himself) and it was delicious!!!
