While shopping my pantry recently and finding two boxes of stuffing, I was inspired to tweak my meatloaf recipe (see “Pandemic Pantry” blog post).
But what to do with the other box of stuffing had me puzzled. After some thought and a check of my pantry inventory, I was inspired to revamp my quiche recipe to include stuffing. And with the weather turning warmer, a slice of quiche and salad make a welcomed meal.
Make the stuffing in the microwave according to the instructions on the box.
Lightly coat the pan (Corning Ware has become one of my kitchen staples over the years) with Canola spray to ensure the quiche serves easily.
Line the bottom of the pan with the stuffing mix (note – it may be a little tough to get it to “stick” to the pan because of the spray) and bake for 7-8 minutes in a pre-heated 375-degree Fahrenheit oven.
As the stuffing bakes, mix four (large) eggs, 1 cup of finely shredded (sharp Cheddar) cheese, ½ cup (1%) milk and a small bag of real bacon pieces. If you’re so inclined, cook bacon slices and crumble, instead.
Pour the mixture on top of the stuffing crust and bake for 35-40 minutes. The quiche is baked when a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
My recipe is quick, easy, and judging from the family’s clean-plate reaction, a definite winner. Who knew a box of stuffing could be so inspirational!
