  1. you can also follow the same directions but in a muffin pan. Then freeze the indivdual quiches and microwave for a quck breakfast.
  2. Yum! I used my own "baking mix" (just added to the mix 1/2 c flour, 1 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp sugar, 1 T oil), lunch meat, and skipped the parsley and veggies since I didn't have any that sounded good in it (served it with fresh tomatoes and cucumbers instead). Cooked for 35 minutes at 375 and it was perfect. I'll try it with whole wheat flour next time.
  3. What a fabulous "get rid of leftovers" recipe!!! I had leftover steamed broccoli and was searching the internet for something to do with it, but everything had cans of cream soup or cups of mayonnaise as ingredients... too heavy and fattening for my tastes! So, when I stumbled upon this recipe I thought it would be worth a try. I used my leftover steamed frozen broccoli, and chopped it in small chunks, grated some fresh carrots into it and set it to the side. Then I sauteed diced onion and diced deli smoked ham till the onions were soft. Mixed this with the carrot and broccoli mixture, and spread it over the cheddar cheese in the pie plate. I don't care for "baking mix" so I made my own... flour, baking powder, salt, and butter (i'm anti shortening). Also, I had made pastry cream the week before and still had all the egg whites left over, so I used that. Only had skim milk, so this recipe was extra healthy! Mixed in the chopped fresh parsley from my garden and the spices. Poured over and sprinkled with paprika and a little more cheese. Baked for 40 minutes, but I don't think that was long enough, as it was still a little gooey on the inside... or it could be from the skim milk and egg whites being too much liquid in the mix. Either way, I'll adjust next time accordingly. Thanks for a great recipe I'll use again and again! ****Love this recipe!! Just made it again using hot Italian Turkey sausage, potatoes, onions, mushrooms, sharp cheddar cheese, and garnished with paprika and scallions. Yummy! The only thing I will say against the recipe is that I think its silly to put the cheese at the bottom of the pie plate... it dissipates that way and you don't get the cheesy goodness of a real quiche. I did layers of cheese in this one, and it's in the oven now smelling amazing! Try this recipe and adapt it any way you like!!! THANKS FOR A LIFESAVER RECIPE!!!
  4. I made this with spinach, mushrooms, and zucchini. I got carried away with the veggies as I always do, so I reduced the ham to keep the total volume of veg meat the same. It didn't fly. I like my meal proportions to lean heavily to vegetables, so that wasn't the problem. I think this recipe works best with tastily-spiced leftovers, not starting with unseasoned fresh ingredients. Still, what I made was good enough to eat, and tasty enough to try variations on it later. Cheese on the bottom ended up a lot like crust ... I could see mixing everything (but more heavily seasoned, possibly with less baking mix or none if veggies are well-drained) and pouring it in a crust for yummy! This recipe is a framework, so it should always be a work in progress; and for that, it's a great start!
  5. This recipe has officially made it into my "staple recipes". I make this all the time- change up the ingredients, and it always comes out perfect. Thank you.


  1. I have made this many times with swiss chard, ham, sauteed onions and pepper. I think it is really good when I substitute buttermilk for the milk
  2. Really good and simple to make. I used 1/3 chopped fresh onion and 1 tbsp dried parsley. Since we are vegetarians, I added 1/2 cup of beans instead of the meat. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks!
  3. The flavour of this quiche was very good. I used leftover turkey, 2 strips of precooked bacon, broccoli, a combination of old and mild cheddar cheeses, and instead of the oil I used about a tablespoon of butter. While we all really enjoyed the flavour, the texture wasn't something that was enjoyed. I will continue to use the filling but put it in a regular pie shell instead of using Bisquick. ****I made this again last week when I was running short of time and cooked the quiche a little longer. The texture was much better, lighter and fluffy, than my previous attempt. So if you are not happy with the result, perhaps you may wish to cook it a little longer. Thanks again Tish for posting.
  4. This is a great, flexible base recipe for a quiche! I tossed in leftover sauteed onions and bell peppers and added in some crumbled bacon. I used flour with a pinch of baking powder instead of the baking mix. It turned out very nicely.
  5. Oh Tish! I've been meaning to write you about your quiche! This is going to be a big help for my husband and me since we've gone on a low carb diet! I don't know, maybe I used too much filling, but I had to use a 10 inch deep dish (2") pyrex pie pan. And I had to bake it for a full hour. But this is a wonderful recipe and definitely a keeper! Today I used: 8 oz ground beef browned with 2 tablespoons of Taco Seasoning. I used 4oz of cheddar cheese, 1 4oz Can of diced green chilies and a small garlic clove instead of the garlic powder. Also, I didn't need the oil. I used it the first time and it did make the crust crisp and gave it a nice texture - but I'm trying to omit where I can. I also tried using less egg yolks and more egg whites but the flavor just wasn't there - so 3 eggs it is! This is going to be great for our breakfast! Good job!


I live in Las Vegas. I was lucky enough to run into Recipezaar around Nov. 2000 and got hooked quickly. I am a cookbook collector and have been collecting recipes for as long as I can remember. My DH had to build in shelves for all my cookbooks! I like to dabble with OAMC and for a few years hosted the Budget/OAMC forum with some great people over there. Even though I don't work in the forum any longer I've set up a lot of cookbooks for the purpose of OAMC and stretching food that might be helpful. Please feel free to check them out! I go on food jags and cooking jags! Please come say hi to me and chat on facebook. I currently host a blog for saving money through finding deals and coupons if you are interested. Most of the time I try to cook and have a good dinner on the table but I'll be honest enough to say there is still fast food occasionally in the budget! I have had such wonderful support here whenever I need it. Thank you all for being here! Just a quick note on how I rate recipes: ? 5 stars - This recipe is perfect. (My DH is truly a critic and doesn't give 5's unless it's amazing) I would recommend it to others and would definitely make again. ? 4 stars - This recipe was good but I would change something in it next time. ? 3 stars - This is a recipe I would not make again but it was OK ? 2 stars - This recipe I would not make again and we didn't like it at all ? 1 star - This recipes did not work out/taste was unappealing and wouldn't make again
