Bisquick Veggie Quiche

Early this morning the sky was so dark and beautiful, I just couldn't resist giving you a glimpse of the raspberry patch like this.
Betty Crocker's New and Good and Easy Cookbook. We bought this cook book for my mom for her birthday in 1964. It was by and large quite usesless, becuase of all the shortcut ingredients that it required. I always loved the pictures and now it is tucked away as a keepsake.
One of the favorite called for ingredients was Bisquick. Did your mom use that?

I often make this easy veggie quiche to add to our Sunday Brunch. Using Bisquck shortens the measuring of flour and the leaving agents. I recently read a post on Farmgirlcyn who is on my side bar and she was asking what we made with bisquick. The veggie's you add to the quiche does not really require a recipe. Just add what you already have on hand. This Sunday I used mushrooms, red peppers, chives, broccolini and a little fresh parsely.


These days I'm all about making life a little simpler. If I can whip up something tasty and serve it to guests then I have accomplished something I might not have if I had fussed a bit longer and decided it was too much work to send out an invite.



After the veggies have had a little saute, add it into a Pie plate sprayed with Pam




Add whatever kind of cheese you like. I like to add Feta, it gives it a bit of additonal flavour.







Whip up the Bisquick and milk . . .




And . . .pour it on top.








Carefully place it in your oven at 350 degrees. Bake it until it is golden brown. Serve with a salad or big breakfast like we do.








Bisquick Crustless Quiche

Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Butter or spray a 9 or 10 inch pie plate
In a skillet, saute vegetables of your choice in a little oil.
In a 4 cup measuring cup . . .
Beat 3 large farm fresh eggs.
Add 1/2 cup bisquick.
Add 1 1/2 cups milk.
Add 1/2 teaspoon salt.
Add 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
In the pie plate, put your veggies, then 1 1/2 cups cheese of your choice.
Pour the bisquick, milk and egg mixture on top.
Bake for 50 minutes.
I'm off for my 30 mintue walk, have a wonderful day my friends.

  1. I used to make that recipe all the time when the kids were little, but never jazzed it up with the feta. Always used plain cheddar. Feta was too expensive!

  2. Oh Lovella, that quiche looks delicious...yum! My Mom and I are big quiche fans. It is very popular in South Africa, and often served for lunch with a salad. I have never made one myself though, but now I have a wonderful recipe to try - thank you!

  4. I'll try again. This comment space doesnt' always want to co-operate with me. I love how you share your recipes so clearly, without holding back any secrets. It's as if you wish success on the person who will try it, and I appreciate that kind of sharing.
    About the truck, congratulations! I was going to suggest Patrick because I thought that you picked it up on St. Patricks...but then I checked and it was on the 18th.
    Well, maybe the next day can be called Patricia. What made you decide it's a girl?

  5. Anneliese, thank you for checking in. I do delight in peoples successes in my recipes. I hope gone are the days when friends withheld secrets on the tricks of the trade.

    I thought about boats, they are all girls right? I don't know what made me decide girl. Perhaps I've waited a long time to pick a girls name.

  6. My mother-in-law makes pancakes from bisquick. Every long May weekend we have a big family reunion and Saturday night she hands out boxes of bisquick, eggs and milk to her daughters-in-law and we make mountains of panckaes in the morning for the family - every year. Your recipie looks great. I'm going to be printing some of these great recipes.

  7. OK - one more. I think boats and cars, maybe even guitars, have girls names is because men love them so much.

    That does not explain the former naming of tropical storms all girls names. :)

  8. Kathy, I love it.
    That is why this truck is a girl.
    Hurricanes just got a bad rap.

  9. Oh come on...tell the truth.
    As much as you love Stuart and Terrence, you know you always wanted a girl.
    Even if it has to be a girl with a grill.

  10. Your meal looks wonderful. Did you peek at Jill's post, and the two of you plan to cause salivation over the keyboards together? Jill did end with a turn of the stomach, and I think I am glad to have visited your post last!

  11. Lovella, I love the picture of your sky over the raspberries.. soo beautiful!
    At least it is 'gluten-free' and I can enjoy it , not like your mouth watering quiche.

  12. Hi Lovella. Hey, someone suggested Georgie Anna for the trucks' name. Our daughters' name is Georgia Ann. Sweet!
    My mom always made that quiche when I was a kid and so since I tend to do things opposite I have never actually bought Bisquick. Maybe I should put the rebellion aside and try it, it does look good.

  13. We tried your recipe for lunch and it was delicious! Yummy! Instead of Bisquick we used a gluten-free baking mix. It turned out great!

    Thanks for the recipe! Didn't we used to call these "impossible pies" back in the 70's?

  14. This looks even easy enough for me to make, perhaps I shall sometime.

  15. Thanks for the recipe Lovella. I'll use it for our Staff coffee time. But, please, give that truck a "he man" name like Archie or Hercules, "Herk" for short.
    See ya Friday,

  16. Classic recipe! My mom used to make this, except with ham, cheddar, and frozen veggies. That's how she rolls. :)

    Yours looks tasty though. I'll have to try it.

    I needed a recipe for a reference to my mom's quiche, so I linked to this in my blog. Thanks!
