The crust is made with baking mix, so it is heartier than a flaky pastry. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9 inch pie pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the baking mix, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper. Gradually mix in the milk until moistened. Knead a few times on a floured board. Roll dough out to a 12 inch circle, and press into the greased pie pan. Fold edges, and flute.
  3. Place bacon and onion in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat, and cook until bacon is evenly brown. Drain, and crumble bacon. Sprinkle bacon, onion, and Cheddar cheese into the pie pan.
  4. In a medium bowl, beat eggs with 1 teaspoon salt and hot pepper sauce, then slowly stir in hot evaporated milk. Pour into the pie shell.
  5. Bake 5 minutes in the preheated oven, then reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Continue baking 25 minutes, or until center is almost set. Do not over bake - the quiche will set as it cools.

I made this recipe exactly as specified. The crust wasn't my favorite, but I chose it for the lower calories and fat. The flavor was fine--not the greatest, but it wasn't the worst, either. If you crave the richness of quiche but don't want to use all your Weight Watchers points, this one is for you. If you don't need to watch your weight, make a richer one! (Side note: I am very distressed with those who give five stars to a recipe they never made! "Oh, I ommitted the crust altogether. Oh and I left out the bacon and onions." What quiche did you all make?!

This is one of my new favorite recipes! I used a frozen pie crust, so skipped to the good part. Very easy, and very tasty!

Loved the recipe and everyone who tried it loved it too! Only things I did differently was sliced turkey breast instead of the bacon(used 3 slices louis rich)and monterey jack cheese instead of cheddar. I also added some of Emeril's Essence to it. Overall it was very easy to make, everyone loved it, and maybe next time I will use some habanero sauce in it. Also about 1/3 of an onion was enough for the church group I took it to. If I was making it for around the house I would have used the whole onion though. I recommend this to anyone who wants a tasty quiche.
