Ice day quiche

I made this quiche, yesterday.  Yesterday because we had ice, I called it an "ice day quiche."  Fact of the matter is, this is an any day quiche.  If you have Milk, Bisquick and cheese on hand, and two cups of any vegetable, you can make this quiche.  My desire is that you learn to cook like a Grandma.  You don't always have to follow a recipe exactly.  Learn to improvise.  You might produce surprisingly delicious results.  Trust yourself.
Yesterday, when we were iced over, the cupboard was bare.  I scrounged to make something for lunch.  I found a sweet potato and half a bag of mixed vegetables.  Steam your vegetables first.  This recipe as is, produces a lovely quiche. 
Harvest Vegetable Pie
Broccali, frozen- 2 cups
Onion, chopped- 1/4 cup
Cheddar cheese, shredded - 1 cup
milk- 1 1/4 cup
Bisquick 3/4 cup
Salt- 1 teaspoon
Pepper- 1/4 teaspoon
Steam broccoli until almost tender.  Drain thoroughly.  Chop broccoli, add onions and cheese, fold together lightly.  Arrange in greased 10 inch pie pan.  In mixing bowl beat eggs, milk, Bisquick, salt and pepper together with a wire whisk for one minute.  Pour egg mixture over vegetables. 
Bake at 325 degrees for 35 to 45 minutes or until golden brown.

This looks wonderful. Did you actually bake the quiche in that beautiful china dish? I'm amazed.
I will try this recipe. It's perfect for a cold winter's night.


Spinach and Feta QUICHE is one of my favorite things,yum, yum. Yours looks terrific, though. Will do as you say and improvise based on ingredients in my fridge. Great idea.

That looks delish! Now you've made me hungry and I must go forage for food. I'm sure whatever I find will not be that tasty.

As usual, looks yummy.
Last night I came home and warmed up a plate of hot chicken salad left over from Sunday. I had a side of Fiber One cottage cheese (FABULOUS if you haven't had it yet.) It was a fantastic combo. Very comforting and homey on a Monday night.
