Breakfast Biscuit Bowls

9 Jun

As promised, here is the update on my next round of biscuit bowls!

Once again, I used 1 can of Grands biscuits.  This time, I sprayed the small Pyrex bowls on the outside, rolled together 2 Grands biscuits, and spread it over the outside of the bowl.  I lined a baking sheet with aluminum foil, placed the upside down bowls on the sheet, and baked in the oven at 350 F.  After 12 minutes, I started checking them, and mine were finished in 20 minutes.  Time may vary by oven and by what you bake them on.

Then, assembly time!  My older daughter added grated Parmesan to hers, I added crumbled feta to mine, and my younger daughter and my husband added shredded cheddar to theirs.  I had some filling leftover, so I made a few burritos using large flour tortillas that I had on hand.

I was very pleased with how it all turned out, and we will be having this again, and soon!

 

 

Spinach, Feta, and Bacon Mini Quiche

20 Nov

 

I got a chance to try out a recipe from the 2012 Taste of Home Cooking School show that I recently attended.  These are delicious!  The original recipe calls for brie, but since I had feta cheese on hand, I used it instead, knowing it is a good combination with spinach and bacon.  It also says to use 2 pie crusts, but I found that 1 pie crust and the filling filled the 12 muffin cups in my pan.  So, since I had both pie crusts ready to go, I doubled the amount of filling and got 24 mini quiches.  Yum!

 

Spinach, Feta, and Bacon Mini Quiche
Original recipe here

What you need:

4 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup red onion, finely diced
1 cup fresh spinach leaves, washed & diced
2 slices bacon, cooked & crumbled
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 refrigerated pie crust

How to make it:

Preheat oven to 350 F.  Spray a 12-cup muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.

In a medium-size bowl, whisk eggs together with milk, salt & pepper.  Add spinach, bacon, onion, and feta to egg mixture and blend well.

Roll out pie crust and cut in 3 inch circles (I used a juice glass to cut the circles); line muffin tins with circles.

Spoon egg mixture into each muffin cup, filling 3/4 full; place in oven and cook for 25 minutes or until eggs are set.
