Vandal Sunrise Quiche

Our “Vandal Sunrise Quiche” is a perfect way to utilize your leftovers without experiencing Thanksgiving déjà vu. Excess mashed potatoes are transformed into a soft and tender crust. Traditional turkey is paired with side vegetables and cheese that is then covered with a rich and creamy egg mixture. It is baked golden-brown to a light and fluffy texture. By using your Thanksgiving leftovers and common household staples in this way, you will avoid a trip to the store and another year of reheating last night’s dinner. This simple, golden breakfast dish will brighten your morning and chase away your leftover blues.
