Apparently quiche is supposed to be a good way of using up leftover veggies. I don’t think that ours is the only house that doesn’t have that problem. At least, I hope not. Even when I lived by myself I still didn’t have too many leftover vegetables. I would heat up a frozen bag or make a standard recipe and be lucky to have 1-2 servings remaining. My husband also eats his fair share of them, so between us, we usually have more of the main course left than anything else.
Anyway, what I am getting at is that you could use this as a way of getting rid of veggies, or you could do it like I do and make new ones for it. It works out well, time-wise, so I don’t think it matters either way. This recipe is the main reason I try to keep a block of cream cheese in my fridge at all times–all I need are eggs, cream cheese, grated cheese, and a few other staples to put me on my way. It’s the “I am out of other ideas” recipe, or the “I forgot to plan something” recipe that is nice to fall back on. (I have a few of these, and I’m hoping the husband hasn’t noticed yet.)
