    Broccoli, Potato, and Bacon Quiche


    19 oz bag green giant roast potatoes with broccoli and cheese sauce
    pie crust (I am going to use a frozen one, myself)
    4 eggs
    2/3 cup whipping cream (I have this leftover from alfredo sauce, but you could easily use milk)
    7 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
    1 cup shredded parmesan cheese (I am going to actually replace this with feta, because I need to use it up, and I won’t use a full cup)
    1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
    1/2 tsp basil
    1/2 tsp pepper
    1/4 tsp salt


    Cook the bag of potatoes with broccoli and cheese as directed.

    Beat eggs and whipping cream in a large bowl until eggs are scrambled. Add potato mix and remaining ingredients.

    Pour into crust.

    Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until browned.

    You can use your coffee pot to heat water hot enough to heat up anything in a can. Heat your water, plop a can carefully into the pot, and let it sit for a while. Be careful taking it out of the pot.

    Open carefully and eat.

    Use water heated in the above mentioned strategy to fill a cup o ramen.

    A bagged salad, a pouch of chicken breast (sold by the tuna in cans), some sliced almonds, and a dressing few dressing packets from Wendy’s etc.

    Syndy, they sell all sorts of nifty containers at Hobby Lobby and Michael’s. Do you have access to those? Dollar Tree usually has appropriate containers as well.

    Ah, yes, cleanin’ out the cabinets day! I try to plan so that we don’t get too low on things, and it works pretty well, but we’ve been known to have some…interesting meals right before shopping day, too. Rice & Gravy is one of my faves.

    Thanks again! I got in for my third Friday in a row! One more till I have met my limit.

    I shop then make a menu. That way I can see what’s on sale, what’s on clearance and stock up based on that.
