Okay, if you didn’t get the idea already, quiches are a perfect excuse to use up odds and ends of meats and vegetables in your fridge.  This particular day I had sausage and spinach on hand.  Other times I have combined bacon and spinach or packed loads of vegetables and topped my quiche with potatoes in this Potato-Topped Quiche recipe.

At any rate, these pies are great to eat any meal of day and you can prepare everything ahead of time (up until the baking part) and then bake it when you’re ready to eat it.  Eat a slice with a simple salad or fresh fruit and down it with your favorite cocktail.

That’s how you should enjoy a slice of quiche anyway (in my humble opinion).
