This recipe gets an A++ for versatility! Check your Graveyard (AKA crisper drawer) to see what needs used; chances are good that you can put some of it in with this. You can also throw leftover chicken, turkey or ham in here, and you can add virtually any cheese that appeals to you. With a tossed salad, it makes a quick, cheap and easy meal.
