It’s springtime and soon there will be many deals on eggs to be found at the market. When you’ve had your fill of pickled eggs and all of the other seasonal egg dishes that are served this time of year, or if you simply want to take advantage of cheap egg prices, I have an idea for you.

Freezer Quiche

In each freezer bag combine:

1 cup milk, 4 eggs, 1/2 cup flour and 2 tsp baking powder that you mixed until well blended. Add approximately 1 cup or more or less to taste of a cooked meat of your choice. You might choose, bacon, ham, Canadian bacon, or sausage, or go meatless. Also add a good amount of frozen veg, such as broccoli, spinach or asparagus, about 1/2 cup of chopped onion and a cup of cheese. I used about 1 1/2 cups frozen chopped veggies. Freeze. On serving day thaw bag in frig and then grab the bag and make sure everything is mixed up. Pour into a nonstick deep dish pie plate or an 8″ x 8″ small baking dish that you prepared with a little nonstick spray. Bake at 350 degrees F for 35 minutes or until set. Be careful if you add a ton of vegetables to use the baking dish instead of the pie plate, as you may experience overflow.

I set up an assembly line and make six of these at a time varying the flavors. You could do spinach and turkey sausage, mushroom and swiss, sweet roasted red bell pepper or sun-dried tomato with mozzarella, black olives and greek oregano with feta, or whatever happens to be your favorite flavor. Use your imagination. This is a great quick and frugal meal for a weekend breakfast with fruit or a weeknight supper with a salad.

Do you know a busy mom or one coming home with a new baby? How about a friend or neighbor who you know just had surgery? If you know anyone who could use a break from meal preparation this is a very easy, frugal idea to be able to share and lend them a hand. You couldn’t ask for easier prep. They only have to thaw, pour and bake. You could even provide them with a foil pan for easy clean up, and the recipe just in case they would like to know exactly what’s in it so they can make one too.  Just pick up some fruit, crusty rolls or bread, and/or a prewashed salad on your way over to deliver it.
