No Food Left Behind Quiche

If you are like me and hate to throw out leftovers and want to save money then let your food ingredients stretch.

Make your family food throughout the week that incorporates “scraps” or leftovers.

I have a container called my “scraps” container. Inside I put any left over veggies and onion “scraps” from previous meals. These veggie “scraps” are perfect for a quiche.

Now you can use any meat you want ( chicken, steak, bacon, sausage, etc…) or none at all and make a veggie quiche

Heat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit while you are prepping your quiche

For this quiche I heated my turkey sausage up on the stovetop.

Once it was done I took my sausage out and diced it for my quiche while I was dicing I threw my “veggie scraps” into the pan and heated them as well (for about 2 minutes on low heat)

Next I coated my pie crust with egg white

I then used the left over egg white and yolk from the egg that I had set aside and mixed them with 3 other eggs. In this mixture I added my salt and pepper as well.

I poured the mixture into my pie crust along with my turkey sausage ( or whatever meat you choose) and of course don’t forget to add your scrap veggies : )

Top with shredded cheese if you like then bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees F then lower to 375 degrees F for another 20 minutes… A total cook time of 35 minutes.
