Meatless Fridays

This week's Meatless Friday meal is:
It's a simple crustless quiche that can be thrown together with things you probably already have on hand and is a great use for left over vegetables. It's been my "go to" meal on a number of occasions. The one pictured below was made with broccoli because that's what we had harvested from the garden that day.

2 cups milk
6 eggs
3/4 cup biscuit baking mix (or 3/4 cup flour with 1 tsp. baking powder)
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
8 oz. of shredded cheddar cheese
1 heaping cup of cooked/blanched vegetable: chopped spinach, broccoli, asparagus, sun dried tomato, caramelized onions, peppers are just a few options. You can add anything at all that goes with eggs!

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease a 10 inch baking dish. In a large bowl, beat together milk, eggs, baking mix, butter and parmesan cheese. Batter will be lumpy. Stir in vegetables and cheddar cheese. Pour into prepared baking dish. Bake in preheated oven for 50 minutes, until eggs are set and top is golden brown.
Serve with a salad or fresh fruit.
