"An old recipe I needed to post. It is a Easy Basic Quiche Pie; but, I call it a 'quiche pie' because it is a mix of the classic Bisquick Pie; plus a quiche - and the ingredients are totally up to you. This is perfect way to use up leftovers. As long as you use the basic method and ingredient amounts - you can create anything. Some of my favorite combinations are: 1) bacon, corn, onion, smoky swiss; 2) ham, onion, broccoli, swiss; 3) sausage, peppers, onion and mozzarella; 4) beef, fresh tomato, onion. corn, cheddar; 5) chicken, mushrooms and monterey jack; 6) Crab, asparagus and mushroom; 7) ham, zucchini, mushrooms, onion, provolone; and, 8) spinach, olives, sun dried tomatoes, onion, feta and mozzarella. So you can see all the possibilities. It takes all of a few minutes to prepare, 30 minutes to cook. and dinner is on the table. A great week night meal."

Step 1

Meat and Vegetables ... As I said, you can make up any combination you like, but just make sure that the meat is cooked and diced fine. And the vegetables, I just make sure to dice fine as well - you want everything to be approximately the same size. Also, if using fresh tomatoes, zucchini, or summer squash, you need to use these in smaller quantities; and tomatoes do need to be seeded and the squeezed lightly. The reason for this, is they have a much higher water content, so you don't want to end up with a watery pie. Fresh or frozen spinach can be used as well. NOTE - If you want to make this vegetarian, just use the 1/4 cup which is meant for meat; and use vegetables instead.

Step 2

Bottom Layer ... Spray a deep 9" pie plate with a non-stick spray. Add the diced vegetables and meat. Top that with the cheese and set to the side.

Step 3

Egg Mix ... Add the eggs to a small bowl and mix well. Then add in the milk, Bisquick, seasoning, salt and pepper; and again, mix to combine. Pour over the meat and vegetables. Don't worry about filling it up to the top, it will not spill over during cooking.

Step 4

Bake ... Bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees on the middle shelf for 25-35 minutes until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Once the pie is done, remove, and let it rest at least 5 minutes before serving.

Step 5

Serve ... This makes a fantastic breakfast, brunch, lunch, or a light dinner. I love to serve this with tomato slices, or a salad. ENJOY!

This is really easy and makes a great light supper. I used Heart Smart (Lowfat) Bisquick. My fillings were Canadian bacon, mushrooms, spinach and green onion. I used a cheddar/jack mix for cheese. Looking forward to a cold slice for lunch tomorrow.
