The classic impossibly easy Bisquick quiche is the perfect way to enjoy a delicious quiche for breakfast or brunch with minimal effort! This savory breakfast is filled with an egg custard that’s flavored with bacon, onion, and Swiss cheese.
Impossibly Easy Bisquick Quiche
You know how some recipes just transport you back in time when you take that first bite? This Bisquick quiche does that for me. It tastes like weekend breakfasts at my Grandma’s house, and it really is just so many happy memories in that delicious bite.
Also, I LOVE an easy breakfast, and it’s even better when they’re also easy to clean up. And that’s what this is! Easy, just so so easy to make.
Not to mention how super tasty this is, everyone in my family (adults and kids alike) cleans their plates when I serve this (and I get so many requests for second servings, which is kind of my favorite compliment).
This recipe really is magical. I love how the Bisquick separates and creates its own crust – it’s pretty amazing. Plus, I find it is so much tastier than a regular pie crust that I would typically make a savory breakfast tart in.
If you want an impressive culinary magic trick that will get you thumbs up from everyone, Bisquick Quiche is your recipe!
Why Is It Called Impossible Quiche?
This is a recipe that used to be printed on Bisquick boxes in the 1970s. Some people say it’s called impossible quiche because it’s impossibly easy (compared to the traditional way of making a quiche – no pastry crust, pie crust, or blind baking here!).
Some people say it got its name because it seems like an impossible magic trick. The way the Bisquick settles to the bottom during baking to create a crust, when no crust existed when you put it in the oven, is seriously pretty incredible.
You only need 8 ingredients to make this impressive breakfast dish! You’ll need bacon, Swiss cheese, onion, milk, Bisquick, eggs, salt, and pepper.
How To Make Quiche Using Bisquick
Start by cooking and crumbling the bacon, and shredding the Swiss cheese. Layer the Swiss cheese, onion, and bacon in the bottom of a greased pie dish. (See the recipe card below for the full printable instructions.)
In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, salt, and pepper. Then mix in the milk and add the Bisquick.
Whisk the Bisquick and egg mixture until it’s totally smooth – this is so important, the recipe won’t work unless it’s completely smooth. Pour the mixture over the bacon, cheese, and onions.
Bake until it’s set, and then let it rest before slicing and serving. See the recipe card below for the full written instructions, including ingredient amounts, cooking times, and helpful tips, etc.
Making Quiche For A Crowd
Since this recipe is so easy and foolproof, it’s really the perfect breakfast to make when you have lots of people to serve. All you have to do is double the ingredients and bake it in a 9 x 13 baking dish. Then cut it into squares and serve!
Why Is My Quiche Not Cooking In The Middle?
If the egg custard in your quiche isn’t setting in the middle, it probably means you used too many ingredients that contain a lot of water. This can happen if you decide to add in lots of vegetables. If you’re going to add any vegetables, it’s important to cook them first so that they release their water and dehydrate a bit before going into the quiche.
How Long Should Quiche Rest Before Cutting?
This does need to set for a bit before you can slice into it. If you slice into it right away, it will fall apart.
When it comes out of the oven, it will have a puffy domed top. After about 15 minutes on a wire rack, the top should have sunk, and the quiche should be set enough to slice.
What Do I Serve With Quiche?
Some delicious side dishes to serve with quiche are:
- Tropical Fruit Salad
- Loaded Baked Potato Salad
- Hamburger Potato Casserole
- Biscuits with Grandma’s Sausage Gravy
- Broccoli Cranberry Salad
- Cinnamon Rolls
There are three ways you can play with the flavors in this recipe: Cheese, Vegetables, and Meat. Just be sure that any meat or vegetables you add are cooked first – it’s so important to cook off all the water you can before adding it to the quiche. My favorite additions and substitutions are:
- Meat: Sausage, ham, chicken, turkey bacon, or ground beef.
- Vegetables: Broccoli, mushrooms, spinach, asparagus, artichoke hearts, kale, bell pepper, or zucchini.
- Cheese: Cheddar cheese, parmesan, or pizza mozzarella.

If you like this recipe, be sure to check out our entire egg recipe section! We have some delicious breakfast options. Some reader favorites are:
- 12 slices bacon (cooked and crumbled, fat drained)
- 1 cup freshly shredded Swiss cheese
- 1/3 cup yellow or white onion (diced)
- 2 cups milk
- 1 cup Bisquick *
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
- Preheat the oven to 400 F (204 C).
- Lightly grease a 10-inch pie plate (I recommend glass or metal, but I don’t recommend ceramic).
- Evenly spread the onions, shredded Swiss cheese, and cooked and crumbled bacon over the bottom of the greased pie plate.
- To a medium bowl, add the eggs, salt, and pepper. Whisk until the eggs are fully mixed, then whisk in the milk.
- Add the Bisquick to the eggs and whisk for about 1 minute, or until the mixture is clump free and smooth (don’t stop whisking until it’s totally smooth!).
- Pour the Bisquick mixture into the pie plate over the other ingredients.
- Bake for 35 minutes. Check to see if the quiche is done by inserting a toothpick into the center, if it comes out clean the quiche is finished baking. (If the first poke comes out a bit wet, check another spot, the cheese is gooey and might fool you into thinking it's not ready.)
- Once the quiche is done, place onto a wire rack and cool for 15 minutes.
- Once the quiche has set and cooled a bit, slice and serve warm!
*I spooned the Bisquick into the measuring cup and gave it a little shake to level out, so the Bisquick was semi loose, but not packed tight like it would be from scooping it in the cup directly.
When the quiche first comes out of the oven, it looks a little puffy or domed. It will settle as it cools.
