Bisquick Impossible Quiche


I hope everyone is well and staying safe during these trying times. I’ve been home and “sheltering in place” for almost four months now, and as such, cooking up a storm. The plus side to this pandemic is that I’m eating healthier and cleaner, and less processed foods… for the most part.

I love breakfast, and have been making a lot of quiches, mostly with a homemade hash brown crust, but wanted to try something different, and came across this recipe from Betty Crocker. From my understanding, this recipe goes back to the 70’s, and used to be printed on the boxes of Bisquick. This dish was called “impossible” because it magically made its own crust as it baked, thus not needing to make a separate bottom crust before adding the main ingredients, which are bacon, onion, eggs, milk, cheese, and Bisquick mix. When baking in a hot oven, it transforms into an incredible, thick quiche-like pie with a golden surface. Impossible, one would think?!

This recipe can be made suited to your own preferences, but I’m giving you the original one, and noting the changes I made.

Ingredients

  • 12 slices bacon, crisply cooked, crumbled (I used 8 slices)
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese (4 oz) (I used sharp cheddar)
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup Original Bisquick™ mix
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Grease 9-inch glass pie plate. Sprinkle bacon, cheese and onion into pie plate.
  2. In medium bowl, beat remaining ingredients until blended; pour into pie plate.
  3. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
  4. Enjoy!

Cheddar Bay Biscuits


I made these a while back, and remembered how tasty they were so decided to make them again. Apparently, they’re very similar to those served at Red Lobster, but I haven’t eaten there in years so can’t compare. However, I just informed by a friend, that there’s a Red Lobster very close to me… which I drive by everyday to and from work. Pretty funny that I didn’t remember that. But, now that I know, I will definitely be popping in to check out their infamous biscuits. Anywho, if you like garlic, cheddar & biscuits, then you’ll surely enjoy these.

Ingredients

Biscuits:

  • 1 1/4 cups Bisquick
  • 2 tbsp. cold butter
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Little less than 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/8 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp. Old Bay seasoning

Butter Glaze:

  • 1 1/2 tbsp. butter
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. dried parsley flakes

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease or line one cookie sheet with parchment; set aside.
  2. Combine Bisquick with cold butter in a medium bowl using a pastry cutter (or use 2 forks). Don’t worry about mixing too thoroughly; there will be small chunks of butter in the mix about the size of peas.
  3. Add cheddar cheese, milk, garlic powder, and Old Bay.
  4. Mix by hand until combined, but don’t over mix.
  5. Drop 1/4 cup portions of the dough onto cookie sheet.
  6. Bake for 11-13 minutes in preheated oven or until the tops of the biscuits begin to turn light brown.
  7. While the biscuits are baking, melt butter is a small bowl in the microwave.
  8. Stir in garlic powder and dried parsley flakes.
  9. Use a brush to spread the garlic butter over the tops of all the biscuits.

This recipe makes about 6 biscuits. Double the ingredients if you want more.
