Good Idea: Quickie Quiche
Here is a great idea for using leftover cooked or roasted vegetables from your dinner last night.
In this recipe I used leftover toasted corn and grilled asparagus salad from dinner last night.
I skip the crust when I am watching my calories and make a crustless quiche instead.
Whisk 4 eggs in a bowl with about 1/4 cup heavy cream or milk.
Add salt and pepper.
Add your chopped leftover roasted or cooked veggies from last night to the custard mixture.
Broccoli, carrots, onions, potatoes, asparagus, cauliflower, brussel sprouts.....the list is endless!
Add 1-2 cups of your favorite grated cheese (Gruyere is my fave).
Smooth this mixture into a buttered ceramic or glass pie dish.
I topped this quiche w/ some sliced Roma tomatoes just for color and sprinkled some kosher salt over them.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 35 minutes.
Now how easy was that?
Seriously, I think omitting the crust when watching calories is a terrific idea.

Wonder what it say?
Probably is a porn site!
The crustless quiche looks amazing. Forget leftover roasted veggies - I'll specifically roast them to make the quiche in the first place! My kids would love this (with all that yummy melted cheese) and I get them to eat some veggies, too.
Have a lovely weekend!
Too bad about ff. I had that happen once, so I changed my comment moderation to anything older than 7 days.
Ok bad joke. :) That looks great Stacey! Quiches are great little things to get creative with. And you made the most out of it. I'm inviting myself to dinner. :)
