I remember when I was a kid, everyone used "Bisquick" in their recipes . It was easy to bake with and the results were always crispy and tasty.
Last year, Bisquick came out with a gluten free version. Although I usually don't use mixes or processed products, I was tempted.
I had been reading gluten free bloggers who posted Bisquick gluten free pizza recipes, Bisquick muffin recipes, pies, etc. The recipes looked so easy and yummy. I just had to try at least once that magic box of nostalgia that is now gluten free.
So, I bought a box of Bisquick and it sat on the shelf and sat and sat. I really didn't know what to do with it. Finally, I got out one of my mother's forty year old cookbooks and sure enough there was a recipe for Zucchini Biscuit Quiche made with what else but Bisquick!
I'm sharing the recipe, and it is really good. I made it for brunch and everyone in my family loved it! It was easy to make and just as tasty as I remembered, even tastier!
Next time you are looking for something special for brunch, try this recipe. It's easy to make, absolutely delicious and satisfying . .
Here is the recipe
1 cup biscuit mix
3 cups zucchini , sliced
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 cup organic carrots, sliced
1/4-1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup onion, chopped ( I used red onion)
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
4 eggs, slightly beaten
seasoning to taste
Lightly mix ( do not beat) the biscuit mix, olive oil, and eggs. Add the sauteed vegetables and then the cheese. Mix again lightly. Put into a 9 inch greased pie pan. Bake at 350 about 35 minutes.
|Lightly saute zucchini, onions, and carrots in olive oil spray until somewhat soft|
|Mix Vegetables and Cheese Together|
|Place cooked vegetables and cheese mixture in a well greased Pyrex or metal pie plate and cover the vegetable mixture with the Bisquick, eggs, and oil mixture. |
Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes
Gluten-free Bisquick ingredients: rice flour, sugar, leavening (baking soda, sodium aluminum phosphate, monocalcium phosphate), modified potato starch, salt, xanthan gum.
Because of the aluminum phosphate in the ingredients, I probably won't buy this mix again . I don't like to use any aluminum products.
I will make the recipe again, but I'll try to find a homemade recipe for gluten free biscuit mix. Leave me a comment if you know how to make biscuit mix from scratch.
