A week after Thanksgiving, do you still have leftovers? A bit of stuffing that's getting sort of dry and you don't know what to do with it? Make this Thanksgiving (Leftover) Quiche!
Stuffing is a little difficult to press into the pan but it can be done with a bit of patience. The stuffing I make has sausage in it, but if yours doesn't you might want to brown some to go in the filling.
I sauteed an onion with three diced red potatoes until they were medium tender but since this is a Thanksgiving (Leftover) Quiche if you have scalloped potatoes left, I'd use those instead.
We really love cheddar in this house. If you are using leftover scalloped potatoes you might want to omit the cheese or use a little less.
Golden brown on top and oh-so-savory! below. A delicious way to vary the Thanksgiving leftovers.
Thanksgiving (Leftover) Quiche
Leftover stuffing--Approximately 2 cups
6-8 ounces breakfast sausage (optional)
1 small onion, diced & 3 diced red potatoes OR 1 cup scalloped potatoes
1 cup grated cheese (you may want to alter this depending on what potatoes you use)
3/4 cups milk
1/4 cup heavy cream
salt & fresh ground pepper to taste (or about 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper)
small splash of olive oil
1. Preheat the oven to 450. Lightly grease a 9 inch quiche pan. Press stuffing on the bottom and sides of the pan trying to make sure there are no gaps.
2. If using sausage, cook sausage until done in a pan, remove and set aside. If you are using the onion and red potatoes saute them in the same pan. You may or may not have to add a small splash of olive oil depending on your sausage. Saute until onions are tender and potatoes are medium tender. Place sausage (if using), onion and potatoes (or scalloped potatoes) in the quiche pan. Spread evenly and sprinkle with cheese. Set aside.
3. In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, milk and cream. Add salt and pepper and mix well. Pour over potato mixture. If it seems very full, don't worry, just put the quiche pan on a rimmed cookie sheet.
4. Bake at 450 for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown on top and eggs are set. A knife inserted into the center should come out clean of egg mixture. Enjoy!
