Quiche is the perfect idea for an easy, budget-friendly dinner, and it comes together in a flash! The perfect "go-to" meal when you’re on a budget and you have the "what's for dinner?" blues, quiche is also a smart and economical way to use up leftover meat, veggies and cheese.

Add some fruit or a side salad, and you have delicious, thrifty and easy meal your family will love! Just follow the basic recipe, and the sky is the limit as to what you can create! Try these combinations or have fun coming up with your own:
• Ham, Broccoli and Cheddar Cheese
• Chicken or Turkey, Mushrooms, Green Beans and Swiss or Co-
Jack Cheese
• Ground Beef, Onions, Tomatoes and Cheddar Cheese
• Crab, Mushrooms and Swiss Cheese
• Bacon, Spinach and Swiss Cheese
• Zucchini, Onion, Tomatoes and Swiss Cheese (meatless so use 1-2 cups veggies)
• Ground Beef or Chorizo, Diced Tomatoes w/Green Chilies and Monterrey Jack or Pepper Jack Cheese
• Shrimp, Mushrooms and Edam Cheese
• Bacon or Sausage, Frozen Shredded Hash Browns (thawed), Onions and Cheddar Cheese
• Mild Italian Sausage, Green Peppers, Onions, and Monterey Jack or Cheddar Cheese

Note: For cost-testing purposes I used turkey breakfast sausage, shredded cheddar cheese, frozen spinach, fresh tomato, and green onion). Quiche freezes well. To freeze, cut into individual slices and place in hard-sided freezer containers. Freeze until firm, and then store up to 3 months. To thaw, heat in the microwave on high for 1-2 minutes.

    So many variations can be made but today I did it with broccoli, cheddar cheese, parm cheese and bacon (cooked crisp and crumbled) . I cooked the frozen broccoli first and put it in the food processor after cooking. I'm not a fan of nutmeg in quiche so I leave that out. I agree though that the refrigerated dough is great. I've tried different brands including store brands but won't anymore because Pillsbury really IS the best. Oh and I don't find the flour in this recipe to be necessary.
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!
    This is a variation

      I made one with red bell pepper sautéed with bacon, onion, garlic and I put in some homemade pesto. Then I used allspice instead of nutmeg, with mozzarella. Yum!!
