Crustless Vegetable Quiche

We’ve used broccoli and cheddar in this delicious and easy quiche, but you can substitute different cheeses or vegetables to use what you have. Try it this way or with spinach and mozzarella cheese or mushrooms and Swiss.

Vegetable Stromboli

I love recipes like this because they are so easily adapted to what you have on hand. There are so many combinations that would be good—mix it up by using leftover meat or spinach instead of the vegetables listed, or try swapping out different cheeses. Anytime you can reduce waste by using leftovers instead of throwing them away, you save money.

Cheddary Spirals with Broccoli

This stovetop dish can be easily adapted to use what you have on hand; the basic recipe can be used in any number of unique combinations. Substitute any pasta for fusilli, any vegetable or vegetable mix for broccoli, add chicken, or experiment with various cheeses. Omit the lemon juice if your combination of vegetables and cheese doesn’t work well with the citrus flavor, and adjust the cooking time of the pasta and vegetables as needed.

Southwestern Hamburger Skillet

This southwestern style stovetop recipe from the Frugal Mom Menu is a quick and easy way to use up leftovers and canned ingredients that you have on hand. If your family likes spicier flavors, substitute enchilada sauce for the tomato soup and add a can of green chilies or tomatoes with green chilies. Other additions that work well are corn and black olives. Although the recipe calls for kidney beans, black beans or red beans can be substituted.
