Fridge Surprise Quiche Recipe

So my first recipe for the year isn’t exactly from my list but it absolutely combats waste, doesn’t have to have meat and is ultra quick and easy.

It is also my favourite way to clean out the fridge. Put everything that is about to walk out of the fridge in protest on the counter, mix it up with eggs, milk and cheese and pour it into a quiche dish lined with puff pastry, and voila you have lunch!

10 mins prep
40 mins cooking

4 x eggs
1 x cup of milk
1 x cup of grated cheese (I had a hunk of Mersey Valley left in the fridge which I was tempted to sit and eat in one go)
Salt and pepper
Dried herbs

I also added
Leftover cooked potatoes
A green capsicum which was on the turn
Lame broccoli from the garden I had forgotten about
Mushrooms I had bought with the thought to ‘make something’ and had forgotten about
Puff pastry



  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celcius
  2. Take puff pastry out of the freezer
  3. Mix the eggs, milk and cheese first
  4. Chop all your ingredients
  5. Mix together
  6. Season
  7. Spray quiche dish with oil
  8. Lay defrosted puff pastry in the quiche dish
  9. Use another half a sheet to line the sides. Trim edges
  10. Fork the pastry and sprinkle a little bit of plain flour to give it a crispier bottom
  11. Pour the mixture in
  12. Bake at 180 degrees for forty minutes or until the top bounces back when you push it and is golden on top
