BACON-BROCCOLI APPETIZERS


These tasty nibbles are great as appetizers at a party and 
 wonderful at a brunch as well.


Just look at that colorful array of vegetables that form the base
for this dish ..... broccoli, corn, onions.  In addition I tossed in some
 bacon and even a few walnuts.


Whisk together biscuit mix, milk, butter and eggs which will  form
the crust.


Pour the flour mixture over the veggies and it ready for the oven.



BACON-BROCCOLI APPETIZERS

1 cup broccoli florets, bite size
1 can (7oz)  whole kernel corn, drained
1/3 cup crisply cooked bacon, crumbled
¼ cup chopped onion
1/3 cup coarsely chopped walnuts, optional

Cook broccoli in boiling water until tender-crisp, about 3 minutes.
Drain and plunge into cold water to preserve color and texture.
(Or use frozen broccoli cuts, thawed and drained)
For the corn, I used 3/4 cup frozen corn, cooked
Spray a 8 or 9-inch square pan with cooking spray.
Arrange vegetables in pan, sprinkle walnuts on top.

½ cup biscuit mix*
¼ tsp. garlic salt
¼ tsp. salt
¼ cup butter or margarine, melted
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

In a medium bowl, stir biscuit mix, seasonings, butter, milk and eggs
with wire whisk until blended.  Pour into pan.
Bake in preheated 375° oven for 25 minutes or until knife inserted
in center comes out clean.  Sprinkle with cheese.
Bake 2 to 3 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
Cool.  To serve, cut into squares; cut each square diagonally in half.

* I posted the recipe for a large amount of biscuit mix in an older post.
Here is the amount for this recipe.
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tbsp. shortening
Blend flour and baking powder; cut in shortening until
mixture is crumbly.

  1. That looks so good! I thought from the first picture that the mixture was baked on top of a tortilla chip but it's the shape you cut them. Looks a bit like quiche.
