Food for Thought: Modifiable Go-Tos

One of the best weapons in my weeknight cooking arsenal is versatile basics. Those go-to dishes you know you can come back to, but don’t need to be exactly the same every time. Those dishes that provide you with a solid foundation but can be customized to whatever needs to be used up in your fridge and still turn out great.

One of my most reliable stand-bys in this regard is my quiche. Literally endless combinations for fillings. A basic frame with interchangeable accessories. Know what I mean? Tonight’s quiches were: chicken sausage with a blend of cheddar and jack cheeses; and sweet onion, spinach, and basil with provolone. YUM.

So I’m wondering what kinds of modifiable recipes you keep in *your* back pocket? What’s your mix and match go-to??
