Mini Quiche from Leftovers

Susan Feliciano


I wanted a small quiche for my lunch today, and did not want to take time to make a crust. I found I could press a slice of bread into a small casserole dish to provide a crust. Then I sauteed some leftover broccoli, cauliflower, and sweet peppers in olive oil to soften them up, and added them to the quiche. Cheese, milk, eggs, and seasonings completed this. And it was very good!
