Ingredients

Crust

1
cup Bisquick™ Gluten Free mix
1/3
cup plus 1 tablespoon shortening
3
to 4 tablespoons cold water

Filling

1
tablespoon butter
1
small onion, chopped (1/3 cup)
1 1/2
cups sliced fresh mushrooms (about 4 oz)
4
eggs
1
cup milk
1/8
teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
3/4
cup coarsely chopped fresh spinach
1/4
cup chopped red bell pepper
1
cup gluten-free shredded Italian cheese blend (4 oz)
  • 1 Heat oven to 425°F. In medium bowl, place Bisquick mix. Cut in shortening, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until particles are size of small peas. Sprinkle with cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing with fork until all flour is moistened and pastry almost leaves side of bowl (1 to 2 teaspoons more water can be added if necessary).
  • 2 Press pastry in bottom and up side of ungreased 9-inch quiche dish or glass pie plate. Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until crust just begins to brown and is set. Reduce oven temperature to 325°F.
  • 3 Meanwhile, in 10-inch skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Cook onion and mushrooms in butter about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender. In medium bowl, beat eggs, milk and red pepper until well blended. Stir in spinach, bell pepper, mushroom mixture and cheese. Pour into partially baked crust.
  • 4 Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.

Expert Tips

A 4-oz can of sliced mushrooms (drained) can be substituted for the fresh mushrooms. If you prefer, you can use gluten-free shredded Cheddar or gluten-free shredded Monterey Jack cheese in place of the Italian cheese blend.
