Keeping It Simple - Crustless Quiche

I am all about throwing together a meal in a few minutes. It doesn't happen often but I recently came across a simple recipe that makes for a quick, delicious, nutritious meal that can be eaten at anytime of the day.

I have made in 3 times in the last couple weeks using different ingredients and everyone has liked except Country Boy. He is a little finicky compared to the rest of us. Have I ever mentioned that Flower Girl eats just about ANYTHING? Love That! In comparison to most kids CB isn't too bad. I guess I'll keep him ;)

So this is what you need:

1 1/2 Cup of chopped meat (cooked) and sauteed vegetables
4 eggs
1 1/2 cup of dairy (milk, half/half, and or heavy cream)
handful of shredded cheese
Salt, pepper, and an herb or two

For meat- I have used ham and sausage, bacon would be good too.
Vegetables...onions, peppers, shredded carrots, mushrooms...basically what ever you have around that needs to be used up.
Dairy- whatever is available. I usually combine 2 of the above. I am sure all cream would be very tasty but not without the price of 1,000 calories per serving so I mix to help preserve....for desert;)
Herbs- I have used garlic and basil but next time around I may use dill.

Preheat oven at 350 degrees, grease a pie plate or shallow round glass container with a slab of buttter. Spread meat and vegetables at the bottom of the pan, sprinkle with a handfull of cheese, mix eggs, dairy, and spices and pour atop. Cook for 30-35 minutes. Isn't that SIMPLE?
