This is an easy way to make a quiche without having to make a crust. I have served this recipe to my family for years and even children love it. I have also served adaptions of this recipe at bridal and baby showers and for brunch. It keeps very well and can be made ahead and served either at room temperature or heated in the microwave. But fresh out of the oven is delicious and Hubby loves it, too. Who says, 'Real men don't eat quiche?'
8-12 slices of bacon (about 1/2 lb), crisply fried, drained on paper towels and crumbled
1 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese (use a medium or sharp cheddar) about 4 ounces
or Swiss Cheese, or a mixture of cheeses that includes Swiss or Cheddar
1/3 cup chopped onion ( I use a sweet mild onion)
2 cups milk
1 cup Buttermilk baking mix
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Crisco, butter or cooking spray to grease pie plate
Heat oven to 400 degrees.
Lightly grease a 10 inch deep pie plate.
Sprinkle crumbled bacon, shredded cheese, and chopped onion evenly in pie plate.
Beat eggs in large bowl, (if you have a pouring bowl, that would be ideal), then add remaining ingredients. Beat well with a whisk for one minute until smooth.
Pour into pie plate.
Bake until golden brown and knife inserted in center comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting. Refrigerate remaining pie.
Note: If using a 9 inch pie plate, decrease milk to 1 1/2 cups, baking mix to 3/4 cup and eggs to 3.
