Recipe Corner: Good Morning Quiche

The upcoming holiday gatherings are sure to bring leftovers for the refrigerator. Wondering how you can turn some of that next-day turkey and other holiday leftovers into another tasty meal? I make an easy quiche recipe that makes use of several traditional holiday leftovers such as turkey, scalloped potatoes and an extra pie crust left behind after all that holiday baking. Any kind of leftover potatoes will do good for this recipe when they are chopped. This recipe can be eaten immediately and does not have to be refrigerated overnight. It is great for breakfast and also for a different spin on lunch or dinner. It tastes great straight from the oven to the dinner table.

"Good Morning Quiche"
1 unbaked 9-inch pie crust
3 egg whites
2 eggs
1 cup turkey, chopped
1/2 cup potatoes, chopped
1/4 cup 2% shredded cheese
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon paprika
Bake pie crust according to package directions. Line rim of crust with aluminum foil to avoid burnt crust. Remove baked pie crust from oven and place on cooling rack. Heat oven to 400 degrees.  
In a mixing bowl, whisk eggs until well beaten. Stir in turkey, potatoes and cheese. Add garlic salt and paprika. Mix well. Pour into prepared pie crust. Bake 40-45 minutes or until quiche turns golden brown. Serves 6-8. Enjoy!
