Impress Everyone with Amazingly Delicious Impossible Quiche

Hearing the word quiche likely makes you think of brunch with your best friend in a nice cafe sipping lattes and eating delicious foods. Quiche is something that I always thought was difficult to make and incredibly rewarding to eat.

I was first introduced to this recipe by my mother in law a gazillion years ago. I am ashamed that I have not shared it with you until now. Its the thought that counts, right? I will NEVER forget having a veggie quiche at her house for the first time. I couldn't get enough of of it. I wanted to run out of the kitchen with the whole pan all to myself! It was THAT good. The beauty of this recipe is that you can add whatever you want to it. It is nearly impossible to screw up. Maybe that why they named it that. I guess we will never know. The original recipe is apparently from the 1960's Betty Crocker Bisquick cookbook.

Look it layers itself while cooking!

The boys just started back up to school after Christmas break so I made these two double-batch quiches for easy warm up before school this week. These are made in 9x13 casserole dishes which are perfect for a pot luck or crowd or, like me, a week of breakfasts.

First things first:

4 eggs (beaten)
2c milk
1c Bisquick
Salt and Pepper to taste
THATS IT!!!! Mix well and set aside.

Now the customization comes to play. Remember, you can use any veggies, meat or cheese you have on hand. I like to start every quiche I make with sautéed onions. I cut up a bunch and sautée them until they are translucent. Then I put them in the casserole dish spread across the bottom. At that point I add my veggies. I like to use steamed broccoli in mine so I layer that in next on both kinds. In my veggie quiche I also add a lot of sautéed mushrooms cooked with some oregano. After all the veggies are in, I layer on top any cheese I have around. Swiss is amazing in this but I almost always use sharp cheddar. You can use as much or as little as you would like. I would say I wouldn't use less than 3/4c for a single batch.

When I am making a meat quiche, I put the cheese on top of the quiche. After adding all of your selected toppings, its time to pour the egg mixture over the top. You can top your quiche with sliced tomatoes and a sprinkling of grated parmesan like I like to or, you can be done. The veggie one is heavenly with the tomatoes on top.

Bake in a preheated 400º oven for 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let set for 10 minutes then dig in! Then I make a double batch, I usually cook for close to 55 min but check after 45 minutes.

The quiche on the left is the boys' favorite; ham and broccoli. The quiche on the right is my personal favorite; veggie! No matter what you add, I guarantee you will absolutely adore this recipe and use it for years to come. *NOTE-I do not cover mine in the oven because I like the golden brown cheese crust on top. You can foil it so it doesn't get that golden if you would like*

What is your favorite go-to breakfast that everyone loves? I would love to hear all about it!
