I have a great, cheap recipe that is good for cleaning up odds-and-ends in the fridge. I call it "Leftover Strata", and it's my take on the Strata recipe found in the cookbook "Hot Dish Heaven".
You can either make this in a 8 in square pan, or a 9x13 cake pan. Grease your pan. Butter enough slices of bread to cover the bottom of the pan, and lay them butter side up. You may need to cut some slices in half to fit; it's ok if they overlap a little.
Next, take any leftovers you want to use up, and spread them over the bread. You are only limited by your imagination. This is a good chance to use up the 1/3 cup of peas that's sitting in the back of the fridge, the lone carrot in the crisper, or odd pieces of meat. Then sprinkle a little shredded cheese over everything. Finish with another layer of buttered bread, buttered side up.
If you're using an 8 in pan, beat 2 eggs with 1 1/2 cup of milk. If you're using a 9x13 pan, double that (4 eggs and 3 cups of milk). Dump the egg/milk mixture evenly over everything. Strata turns out awesome if you can let it sit in the fridge overnight, but you can cook it right away if you need to. Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes. It will puff up and be golden on top.
This is one of our favorite recipes! If I have bread or milk I have to use up, this is the recipe I reach for. You can really "hide" a fair amount of veggies inside there. My favorite Strata combo is tuna, carrots, peas, and cheddar. I've also done sloppy joe meat, corn, and cheddar.
Another quick, high-veggie meal is stir fry using frozen veggies. Saute a bag of frozen vegggies (I like the broccoli/cauliflower mix) in some olive oil or butter until cooked. Sprinkle with lemon pepper seasoning, and serve w/rice.
