I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Clean Out The Fridge Quiche

For this clean out the fridge quiche I used this-and-that I found hiding on shelves in my fridge. Bet you've got what it takes to throw together a clean out the fridge quiche in your fridge too! 

2 tsps olive oil
1/2 cup diced onion
1 cup diced red pepper (or green or yellow)
1 cup chopped spinach (or kale or any greens)
2 tbsps fresh chopped parsley 
2 cups leftover latkes diced (or any cooked potatoes)
6 eggs
2/3 cup milk
2/3 cup shredded cheese (gruyère is good, but whatever you have)
1 tbsp dijon mustard
salt and pepper to taste
a few drops of hot sauce (optional)
1 - 28g scoop unflavoured protein powder (optional)
parmesan to top
3/4 lb store bought pie dough (or make your own)

10' pie plate

This pie dough had been in the fridge a good while so that's where the incentive for this recipe started. 
Roll the dough to fit a 10' pie plate, then pinch or crimp the edges. Place shell in freezer for 20 minutes. Reserve any leftover dough (see note at end of this post)

Heat olive oil in a skillet and sauté onion and red pepper until just lightly golden. Remove from heat and add spinach and parsley. Cool in fridge, then spoon into pie shell.

Top the sautéed veggies with diced potatoes. I used diced store bought latkes that weren't very good to begin with but worked well in this quiche. (Those are the things that look like croutons here 🠇) 
Whisk the eggs, milk, dijon, hot sauce, salt and pepper together. Also the protein powder if using. Stir in 1/3 cup shredded cheese and pour over the vegetables. 

Top with the remaining 1/3 cup shredded cheese and sprinkle with some parmesan.

Bake at 375°F on the bottom rack of the oven for 15 minutes to ensure that you don't have a soggy pie bottom. Then move the pie to the middle rack, turn down the heat to 350°F, and bake another 15-20 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.

Let stand 15 minutes...

then slice and serve.

Keep scrolling to see what to do with that bit of leftover pie dough.

I had enough leftover pie dough to make a half recipe of this Berry Apple Pie!
