Master Recipe for Quiche (Elise Cooke, 04/22/2009, Contra Costa Times)

3 cups leftovers of any kind, including vegetables, meats, casseroles, cheeses

4 eggs

1½ cups milk, half-and-half, cream or other liquids

1 pastry shell

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Chop the food into small pieces and season to taste. Put the food into the bottom of the pastry shell.

2. In a medium bowl, beat eggs and add the liquid. Whisk well and add any herbs or seasonings you like. Pour over the food in the crust and bake for 30-45 minutes.

Variation: To make calzones or turnovers, divide biscuit, bread or pastry dough into separate pieces. Roll out into circles. Place seasoned food inside and seal. Cut a small vent in each and bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until cooked through and golden brown.
