We had a very nice Thanksgiving Day visit with the local kids and grandkids. Each of the families brought side dishes and we were abundantly blessed with food and fellowship. I had some turkey leftover (which I don't mind stashing in the freezer for future use) and quite a bit of stuffing. Nora reminded me of this recipe for Stuffing Crust Quiche. My friend Judy gave it to me many years ago. I made some individual quiches for lunch on Black Friday. Here's the recipe in case you have some lingering stuffing:
Stuffing Crust Quiche
6 oz. stuffing mix
8 oz. cooked chicken or turkey
3/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese
2/3 cup evaporated milk
Prepare stuffing as directed on package. (Since I was using leftover stuffing I just added a little water to re-moisten). Press into a crust in pie plate. Place cheese and chicken in crust. Beat eggs and evaporated milk and pour over chicken and cheese. Bake at 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until lightly browned and set.
Since this didn't use up all the stuffing I added a layer of stuffing to this casserole which also used up some leftover gravy, green beans, and mashed potatoes.
I also had a little bit of leftover cranberry sauce which I mixed into some applesauce. It made a pretty, slightly tart side dish with some soup this evening.
I'm thankful for such an abundance of good foods and creative friends who give me good ideas for using up the bits and pieces leftover. Have fun utilizing your feast day leftovers.
