Another quick and easy meal is quiche.   (It's especially quick if you already have a pie crust in the freezer).  We make one pie to split.  I like how I can have different veggies on my side than Garrett (who wouldn't prefer veggies at all actually), though he does complain when a mushroom swims into his half. 

Roll out the pie crust and put it into a pie or cake pan. (don't prebake) 
Prepare the filling ingredients and layer them in the crust. You can use anything you like. You can leave the meat out. You can change the vegetables. Don't leave out the cheese.  It is good to have a balance between salty things like meat or cheese and vegetables.
Ideas for fillings: 1 medium onion, chopped and sautéed
100 g bacon, chopped and sautéed
100 g sliced mushrooms
100 g ham
200 - 300 g of cheese (eidam, cheddar...whatever)
1 pkg of frozen spinach, cooked and drained
other cooked veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, etc).
20 – 30 g cream cheese, cut into small pieces  put this on the very top
Mix all of the following till smooth and pour over the top of the quiche. 
4 large or 5 small eggs
1 cup of whipping cream or evaporated milk 
1/2 cup of milk
1/2 teaspoon basil 
1/2 teaspoon salt 
2 teaspoons prepared mustard  
Bake at 200 C (375F) for about 45 minutes, until the crust is light brown and the egg mixture is firm.
