I’ve been baking with Bisquick for several decades. One of my favorite ways to use it is in this easy quiche. It makes its own crust so you don’t have to prepare pastry. While it bakes, some of the Bisquick in the sauce sinks to the bottom and creates a crust like lining. The rest of the egg mixture cooks into a delicate quiche with the filling and melty cheese suspended inside. I like it for a simple brunch, a dinner entree or a Saturday morning breakfast.
