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 (9x13 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.
- 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
- Caramelized onions
- Artichoke hearts
- Different cheeses
Fast, frugal, and uses up odds and ends of veggies from the fridge before grocery shopping day!
