We tend to go a bit crazy when buying food for Christmas and end up having lots of left overs. Why not try these Christmas left over ideas that will ensure you don’t have to throw too much away.


For a standard Quiche base:

  • 175g  plain flour,  plus extra for dusting
  • salt
  • 75g butter, plus extra for greasing

Quiche filling:

  • 2 eggs
  • 150ml milk
  • 50g grated cheese
  • salt and pepper
  • leftover meat and vegetables of your choice

If you still have too much food left over, quiche is something that can be frozen and used at a later date. To help our digestive health, why not use wholemeal or brown flour to increase the fibre content.
