It looks fantastic! And I'm sure it's delicious, especially because the vegetables are grown in your garden. The only thing I wanted to notice, it seems to me that this dish is not quiche. I know very well how to prepare quiche. This is a French cuisine dish. A quiche is baked slowly in a savory pie crust (pâte brisée). Quiche always has crust. Most likely you cooked frittata. Zucchini Tomato Frittata
And thanks for sharing your recipes! :)

The Bisquick makes a crust. It is not the same as the quiche you are talking about, since the dough is not placed in the pan first and then the filling.


I dont think it is a frittata either, as there is Bisquick in the list of ingredients.

Apparently I quickly looked through your recipe and did not notice Bisquick on the list, you did not mention Bisquick separately in the steps (you just wrote "remaining ingredients"), so I assumed it was frittata.
It seems to me that it is not correct to name a dish that is prepared differently, just like the original French dish. Since you have used Bisquick, it is more correct to name your dish Impossible Pie


Impossible Pie because that was the name of the pies with Bisquick, such the name was printed on the backs of Bisquick boxes and was widely known in the 1970s.
Or at least Bisquick Impossible Quiche or Bisquick Quiche or Crustless Quiche.

I agree with Cybergrannie that conversation is interesting. But I still believe that the dishes should be called correctly so that people are not misled. Weren't you curious to know the original name for such dishes with the Bisquick mix?
I agree that cooking is an art. But just like in art, we need to invent something ourselves or at least slightly change something in the recipe, otherwise just indicate the real author of the recipe.


Well, this recipe may be good for its simplicity, but unfortunately, Judy is not its author. I hinted to you about this in my previous comment, see the link. The real name of this recipe is Impossibly Easy Zucchini Pie. The author paraphrased Impossible Pie a bit.
Honestly, I would not have found that Judy used someone else's recipe without changing a single word (only the time was shortened) and called it differently, if not for the name "quiche". It just struck me right away that it didn't look like a quiche. I assumed there was a mistake in the title. But since everyone began to claim that this dish is quiche, I had to do a little search. Cybergrannie and Pghgirl40 know that I do it great ;)

Pghgirl40 mistakenly thinks that quiche (I mean real quiche) is an expensive dish and takes a long time to cook. You only need to have the pâte brisée dough, which you can easily make yourself in advance and freeze a few sheets. For pâte brisée, you will need flour, butter, cold water, a little salt, with or without eggs. This is not a puff pastry that takes a lot of time to make. Or you can buy frozen puff pastry if quiche dough sheets are not sold in your area. As I understand you buy a Bisquick mix or spend time making it at home, in the same way you can buy or make quiche dough.


For example, here is a recipe for quiche with zucchini and tomatoes
You need dough, zucchini, tomato, onion, milk, eggs, butter, salt, pepper, flour just to sprinkle the surface of the table. You don't need to buy cheese. Total cooking time 50 min. Total time in original recipe Impossibly Easy Zucchini Pie is 60 min.

I certainly understand why my competitors in the answer contest left their comments. ;) I respect your opinion, especially when it is objective.
