Simple Quiche

I have joined a challenge for the month of September called the Brown Bag Challenge.  This challenge is being sponsered by the blog Healthy Eats at FoodNetwork.com.  The purpose of the challenge is to encourage everyone to bring their lunch to work Monday-Friday.  This challenge is encouraging everyone to eat healthier and save money, by avoiding eating out at lunch. 

Everytime I make supper for Luke and I, always try to make sure there will be at least 2 servings of leftovers for lunch the next day; one for me and one for him.  I was on the phone with my friend Caitlin last night and she was in the process of making a quiche similar to this recipe for supper and subsequent lunches this week.  This reminded of a recipe I have and like, but haven't made in awhile. 

This is a great recipe to use ingredients you have on hand.

4 slices turkey bacon, cooked and diced
1 can chicken, shredded
1 c. mushrooms, canned or fresh
1 c. shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 c. onion, chopped
4 eggs
2 c. milk
1/2 c. biscuit baking mix
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper

Sprinkle bacon, chicken, mushrooms and onions in the bottom of a greased 9" pie plate.  In a medium mixing bowl, beat eggs and milk together; add cheese and remaining ingredients and mix until well combined.  Pour into pie plate over bacon mixture.  Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 50 to 55 minutes or until center tests done.  Let stand for 5 to 10 minutes before cutting into wedges.  Makes 8-10 servings.
