3 days of leftovers = mini quiche for lunch

Thinking of making lunch today I had a look in my fridge, and the leftover ingredients from the previous 3 nights of dinners were not looking very appealing.

I had about a cup of cooked basmati rice, 10 pieces of  roasted potatoes and a cup of cooked vegies. With just leftover rice and vegies I usually make fried rice with eggs stir fried into it, but I wanted to use up the potatoes too. Usually a frittata springs to mind, but this usually sticks in my frying pan.

So to start with preheat the oven to 160 % fan bake

Mix together rice, potatoes and vegies and fry in a Tbs of oil, 1 tsp curry pdr, 1 tsp sea salt and a shake or two of mixed herbs plus a good grind of pepper until heated through.

Beat 5 eggs with a couple of  Tbs of milk  then add the other ingredients from pan. Heap into muffin pans { I used the silicone ones } and bake for 20 mins until  cooked through.

If I wanted to spend a little more time in the kitchen a few mushrooms, garlic and cheese would be a nice addition to these little quiche, but they were  quite passable for a snacky lunch with some sweet chili sauce.

You can use whatever leftovers you have in your fridge, could be chicken, ham, sausage or just some grated cheese grilled on top of the quiche. As long as you have some eggs to bind it all together. They would also make a more substantial meal with a side salad.
