Mini Quiche Recipe

Some things to know about my kids:

  • They love to get involved and feel like they made their dinner.
  • They hate leftovers
  • They can easily be tricked into eating leftovers if I am crafty enough

Sound like anyone else out there?  I like to go to my tried and true Quiche crust and egg base to help give everyone what they want for dinner while ALSO cleaning out leftovers.  Some items you might not think would be good leftovers in quiche are:

  1. Mac n Cheese
  2. Chicken Nuggets
  3. Baked Potatoes
  4. Vegetable Medley
  5. Taco Meat

I mean really, the list goes on and on.  Add in any of the normal quiche items ( like copious amounts of cheese) and you are set!
