When I was trying to figure out what I wanted for dinner tonight (as I was cleaning out the fridge to figure out what needed to be added to my grocery order for tomorrow), I realized I had all this bits and bobs of leftovers that would make a delicious quiche. Although I normally would make my own pie crust, I most reserve home made crusts for actual dessert pies, plus I had one lone premade crust in the fridge so I put that to good use.
It’s not pretty (but it was delicious) – the premade crusts just fit into this large pie tin without leftovers to make a fancy crimped edge – but this is a super heavy pie tin which helps pies bake evenly so it’s my favorite one to use. It’s basically a Denver Quiche – diced ham, green bell pepper, onion and cheese. After I stuck that in the oven I was thinking fruit salad or green salad or……and then I spied the pineapple and decided Pineapple Casserole it would be. Yum two of my favorite things and they went very well together and of course there’s leftovers of each. Although I’m not big on eating leftovers – both of these I am more than happy to eat as leftovers. I’m even contemplating for tomorrow heating up a bit of pineapple casserole and adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top! Fruit and dairy – would that make it a breakfast food? 🙂 And yes, I did have to take a bit of a scoop out of it when it was piping hot from the oven – I wasn’t going to eat yet for a little while so I had to make sure it was good!
