Expert Tips

For fewer calories and less fat, use Bisquick Heart Smart® mix instead of the Original Bisquick mix, and use 1 cup fat-free egg product instead of the 4 eggs.

Try different types of cheeses in this recipe. Swiss and Monterey Jack work well, but you can also try seasoned cheeses, such as shredded taco cheese or pepper Jack cheese.
