If you haven’t made your Albertson’s run yet this week, pick some up and try this yummy dish.
Makes Its Own Crust Quiche
2 cups milk
1/2 cup Bisquick
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 cups cheese (I like Ham and Green Onions)
your choice of meat and veggies
In a blender, blend the eggs, milk, Bisquick, onion powder, salt & pepper for 1 minute. Place cheese, vegetables and meat in the bottom of a greased pie pan. Pour egg minture over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes.
My cost breakdown:
cheese $.50 (from a Kraft promotion a while back where I got 2 pounds for $1.80)
seasonings $.05 (from my food storage)
Meat free (leftover from Easter and saved in the freezer)
Veggies free (I used green onions from my garden)
Total $1.23 plus some fresh fruit to round off the meal.
Another tip for your Bisquick: mix up a big batch of pancake batter and make a few dozen pancakes. Lay them in a single layer on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper. Stick them in the freezer for an hour or two and then re-package in a big ziplock bag. Now, your kids can have pancakes for breakfast. Just pull a few out and heat them in the microwave for a few seconds. Your kids are happy AND you saved lots of money by NOT buying frozen pancakes or waffles.
