How To Make Bisquick Quiche Recipe
This recipe is a winner from every angle. The taste is obviously sensational — and it whips together in a snap!
First, sprinkle your bacon, cheese, and onion into a greased pie plate. Then in a separate bowl, mix up eggs, milk, salt, and pepper before adding in your Bisquick. Gently pour the liquid into your pie plate, bake for 40 minutes, and devour!
You may be thinking, “Kathleen, there is no way that’s all it takes to make a whole quiche! Where’s the rest of your quiche??” But I promise, friends, that really is it!
Maybe it’s the name of the recipe that throws people off — I should call this the Bisquick impossible quiche because it’s so impossibly easy and good!
Let me walk you through some of the ingredients and steps to give you a perfect quiche every time!
With so few ingredients in this recipe, it’s important to get the most flavor out of your bite!
Bisquick: The starring ingredient! You may have seen other Bisquick impossible pie recipes floating around and wondered what makes them so impossible, and why is Bisquick so versatile? We can owe this adaptable ingredient to a clever train chef — he had made his own pre-made biscuit dry mix, and a traveling salesman from General Mills loved the idea so much he altered it for mass production.
So now we have Bisquick, which of course makes delicious biscuits, but can do so much more!
Bacon: Not all bacon is created equal! Luckily, the only difference in this recipe depends on your own tastes. I love using thick-cut, smoked bacon — it gives the finished quiche a delicious bold smoky flavor, along with dense, chewy chunks of bacon.
But feel free to use thin cut or even something wild like pancetta or Canadian bacon. Go crazy!
Cheese: I use Swiss cheese in my recipe, but this is another ingredient that can easily be swapped. Swiss has a mild taste and melts beautifully, but you can also use cheddar if you want a sharper bite. Or, if you want to omit the dairy entirely, you can use your favorite dairy-free cheese. Just be sure to swap the milk too!
Honestly, I’ve yet to have leftovers from this quiche! It’s seriously that good. Even my picky eaters gobble down seconds!
But in case you do have extras, read on for some storing tips!
Can You Freeze This?
Yes! Because the dairy is all blended up with the other ingredients, it won’t do anything funky in the freezer. You can safely store this quiche in your freezer for up to three months.
This would make a great breakfast on the go! Slice up your quiche, store the slices individually, and freeze them. Then when you need a fast, delicious breakfast, grab a slice, and you’re off!
Make Ahead Tips
This quiche recipe pulls together so quickly that I don’t have any make-ahead tips! It’s so fast. The actual prep time is only 10 minutes. I mean, that’s pretty incredible, right?
If you want, you can always make the quiche base ahead of time and store the unbaked quiche in your fridge for up to four days. If you know you’ll need to pop it in the oven early the next morning, you can whip it up the night before and leave it to chill without worrying!
How Long Can You Keep This In The Fridge?
You can store your finished quiche in the fridge for up to four days. It’ll start to get a bit soggy, but you can always revive it by baking it in a toaster oven or giving it a few minutes in your standard oven.
This is also a great way to store your grab and go breakfast slices if you want!
This base quiche recipe is plenty delicious on its own — but what fun mix-ins can we try? Read on!
What Vegetables Can I Add To This Recipe?
Oh, the possibilities! Bisquick impossible vegetable pie is a famous version of this recipe, but what specifically can you add? Well, there’s always your basic Bisquick quiche spinach, which uses just a handful or two of baby spinach leaves. Yum!
Bisquick quiche broccoli is great for using up last night’s leftovers. And if you want an autumnal squash twist, try Bisquick quiche zucchini!
Can I Bake This In A Casserole Dish Instead?
Need to feed a crowd? Double your recipe and transfer the goodies to a Bisquick breakfast casserole with ease! You may need to adjust your cooking time, but just monitor your casserole for toothpick doneness.
What Other Easy Breakfast Recipes Can I Make Using Bisquick?
There’s a wide, wonderful world of Bisquick dishes! I love surprising my family with Bisquick pancakes — they’re so light and fluffy, and absolutely divine with maple syrup. On a similar note, Bisquick waffles whip up great in a waffle iron!
Can I Make Muffins With My Leftover Bisquick?
Yes! Throwing together Bisquick muffins is a snap. My favorite is Bisquick blueberry muffins — those little pops of berry sweetness can’t be beaten!
