This month we have decided to tackle our food shopping bill.
That means we are not doing additional shops and trying to reduce our outgoings.
So this weekend when I really fancied having a quiche for lunch that meant I had to get creative.
As meals go this is easy to do and simple and cheap. I made it using up ingredients that I had in my fridge and cupboard, no additional items purchased!
Crustless quiche recipe :
- 50g onion - finely chopped
- 2 Slices of ham - chopped into chunks
- 120g Cheese - grated
- 2tbs Butter - melted
- 4 Eggs
- 60g Plain flour
- 350ml Milk
- Handful of cherry tomatoes - halved
- Preheat the oven to gas 4/180 c
- Lightly grease a pie dish or a tart tin
- In the bottom of the dish place your cheese and ham.
- Combine the eggs, butter, onion, flour, milk and a pinch of salt, whisk until smooth
- Pour this over the cheese and ham mixture, mix together
- Pop the tomatoes in the top
- Put this in the oven for about 40 minutes until set
As you can see this is so simple to make and budget friendly. Serve this up with beans, salad or just have it on its own for lunch. It’s your choice 🙂
The great thing about this recipe however is the fact it is versatile. If you didn’t have tomatoes, you can leave them out for example. Then if you have maybe peppers in the fridge why not chop them up and add this to the quiche. It is all about using up the odds and sods you have in your fridge so there is no wastage.
If you don’t eat is all, just pop it in the fridge still, I left mine in my pie dish and just reheated the next day in the oven for about 20 minutes.
Perfect for watching the pennies and saving on food wastage.
