  6. Layer chopped steak over the bottom of the pie shell then top with the cooked peppers and onions.
  7. Top with the shredded cheese; spread evenly.
  8. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, half & half, parsley, salt and pepper.

Other leftover options:
In place of the onion and pepper, try adding other holiday meal leftovers such as cooked Brussels sprouts or asparagus. You’ll need about 1 cup of chopped, cooked vegetables. These vegetables would pair well with Gruyere, mozzarella, or goat cheese in place of the Cheddar.
