Bisquick Quiche

     Speaking of box mixes yesterday, here is a recipe that I use a box mix for. I love quiche, and this is the easiest quiche to make! You mix it all in a blender and bake. No fancy pie crust here. It makes it's own crust.

1/2 C Bisquick
4 eggs
1/2 lb. bacon cooked and crumbled
dash of salt
pinch of cayenne pepper
2 C milk
1 small onion, sauted
2 C grated Swiss cheese

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray 10 inch pie plate with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Mix Bisquick, milk eggs and seasonings in a blender.
  4. Pour into pie plate.
  5. Fold in cheese, bacon, and onion. (Can substitute any other meat or cheese or veggies you like.)
  6. Bake for 45 minuted until firm and golden on top.

     I used to use the just-add-water pancake mixes until I discovered this little gem of a recipe. It's really not that hard and I LOVE how they turn out. So much better than a box mix and all from scratch!

1 1/2 C flour
3 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 T sugar
1 1/4 C milk
1 egg
3 T butter, melted

  1. Sift together dry ingredients in a batter bowl.
  2. Add wet ingredients and wisk together. If batter is too thick you can add more milk.
  3. Heat griddle. Melt more butter onto griddle.
  4. Make pancakes using about 1/4 cup of batter for each one.
  5. Flip pancakes when bubbles in batter start to pop.
  6. Serve hot with warm syrup.
  7. Can add blueberries or other fruits to batter before cooking if desired.
