Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner…and then some

In the kitchen at Di's House

Mac & Cheese Quiche

on December 29, 2012

I had over half a casserole of mediocre mac & cheese.  What to do.  I had been thinking of quiche, since a friend had made it recently (with feta – yum).  The mac & cheese was dry and didn’t have enough cheese.  Seemed like it would be an easy fix by throwing it into a quiche.

I also added sauteed onion & red pepper, mushrooms, and of course, more cheese.  I’m not sure if it was Bon Appetit or Gourmet magazine, that had an article about a foolproof Julia Child quiche…anyway, for the liquid, for each egg, add enough milk or half & half to make 1/2 cup, plus seasoning.  It’s such a simple concept.  If 3 eggs is not enough, then it’s easy enough to add another egg with the appropriate amount of liquid.  The quiche is then baked at 375 for about 45 minutes.

I think it was better than what reheated leftovers would have been.  For dinner, I added a salad made with the last of the peppers and tomatoes from my sis-in-law’s vegetable garden.

Quiche is one of those things that I love but seldom make.  I’ll have to make a conscious effort to keep it in mind.  It’s another good “clean out the refrigerator” dish.  It’s also what we’ll be having for Meatless Monday…leftovers!

    What an interesting idea for the next time I have mac and cheese. I usually make a huge casserole and then get tired of eating it. Hence, the idea of creating a new meal out of something I already have on hand sounds like a great solution.
