2 cups of 1 % milk

1 cup Bisquick

1 clove  Ontario garlic, I use “The Garlic Box “available IQF (individually quick freeze) garlic cloves, thaw one clove in warm water and mash with fork.

1/2 tsp. grated black pepper

 


Method of Preparation

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

In fry pan, grill Hayter’s Turkey bacon for 2 minutes each side  over medium heat. Slice into bite size pieces. Set bacon aside.

Spray 10 inch pie plate with cooking spray.

Put cooked bacon, blanched broccoli, red pepper, onions and  1 cup shredded cheese in the bottom of the pie plate.

Beat the eggs with the garlic and pepper.

Stir in the milk.

Add the Bisquick and beat until fairly smooth.

Pour over the ingredients in the pie plate. Do not stir.

Bake for 20 minutes. Add reserved cup of cheese and continue baking another 10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the quiche comes out clean.

Let cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.
