Holiday season is right around the corner. Getting out the door on time gets even harder when you add a long list of holiday activities. The last thing I want to think about is how to entertain guests and feed them, too. Cue my favorite go-to breakfast during the holidays. Drum roll please… Easy Quiche. I love preparing it for holiday or family meals because it is a one-bowl recipe that fills guests up.

The secret ingredient in this recipe is the biscuit mix! It helps keep me full, and I can finally use that lingering box of biscuit mix in my pantry. Easy quiche not only helps me use this biscuit mix, but I can warm the leftover quiche up throughout the week for a quick meal.

This recipe is great to adapt to whatever you have on hand already; it pairs well with a variety of meats, vegetables, cheeses, and herbs. You can even add holiday leftovers such as turkey, green beans, or squash. I rotate my vegetables and spices throughout the year to match whatever produce or flavors are in season for a quick breakfast. Catch me using sweet potatoes, onions, and cheese right now!

Not sure what else to do with holiday leftovers? Check back in on Spend Smart. Eat Smart. for the next few blog posts to help answer that question.
