This is a really quick quiche recipe.  I used both half and half and 1% milk to lower the fat content.  You could also reduce it more by using low fat cheese.  There are many possibilities here for fillings.  Use your imagination. I will definitely keep this recipe for a quick fix meal in the morning for company.

Easy bacon and cheese quiche
1 1/4 cups Bisquick or baking mix
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 tablespoons boiling water
1 package (6 oz) sliced Canadian bacon, chopped
1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese(4 oz)
4 medium green onions, thinly sliced (1/4 cup)
1/4 cup mushrooms
3/4 cup half and half
3/4 cup 1% milk
3 eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt

1. Heat oven to 400°F. Grease bottom and side of 9-inch pie plate with shortening. Stir baking mix and butter until blended. Add boiling water; stir vigorously until soft dough forms. Press dough in bottom and up side of pie plate, forming edge on rim of plate.
2. Sprinkle bacon, cheese, mushrooms and onions over crust. In medium bowl, beat half-and-half, eggs, salt and red pepper with spoon until blended. Pour into crust.
3. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until edge is golden brown and center is set.

About heylaydee

An average cook, an enthusiasm for experimenting and trying new things, is the reason for this blog. That and I found myself in the “empty nest” syndrome and needed an outlet. So I picked up the camera that was collecting dust, got out the pile of recipes, contacted friends and family for their favorites and starting cooking again. What could be better than a glass of wine, a hot stove, and creativity? Come along for the ride. I will be blogging about food, family, and anything else that inspires me.
