When I was given the opportunity to purchase Wright® Brand Bacon at Publix and create a recipe with it, I knew immediately what I was going to cook. One of my most popular recipes on the blog is my Crustless Veggie Quiche Recipe. I make this quiche at least a couple of times a month. It is so good and so versatile. The one food I haven’t tried in my quiche is bacon and I just knew it would make an amazing addition.
Publix currently has Wright® Brand Bacon on sale $2.00 off! Wright® Brand Bacon has the best cuts of premium meat that are hand-selected and hand-trimmed. Their slices are “Always” Thicker and have an awesome smokey taste. This bacon is regularly priced at $9.99 so with the sale, we can purchase a pack for just $7.99. There is also a $1.00/1 Wright Brand Bacon printable coupon or 3-20-16 SS Insert coupon we can use bringing the price down even lower to $6.99!
Once I got home with my bacon, I opened my fridge to see what fresh produce I had. (That’s why I love this recipe so much – you can use whatever veggies you like!) I decided to use asparagus. This Crustless Quiche with Bacon & Asparagus Recipe calls for just a few ingredients. There are two main components to this recipe: the sauteed component and the wet ingredients. The wet ingredients include baking mix. For this, it can be any baking mix that you typically use. I’ve used both gluten free mixes and regular mixes. We like Heart Smart Bisquick and also Pamela’s Baking and Pancake Mix. Do not, however, use a mix that is strictly for pancake and waffles. That will be too sweet.
To prepare the quiche, first I browned the bacon. I wanted to get the bacon nice and crispy. While the bacon was browning, I mixed the wet ingredients together. Then, once the bacon was cooked the way I like, I drained it and placed the bacon on paper towels and then chopped the bacon into bite sized pieces. Using the same pan, I then sauteed the asparagus, peppers and onions and added the chopped bacon to them.
The bottom layer of the quiche is the sauteed asparagus, onions, peppers and bacon. Then, spread the shredded cheese over it. And lastly, pour the wet ingredients on top. Bake for 35-40 minutes and then voila! Your Crustless Quiche with Bacon & Asparagus will be done!

1/2 lb of Asparagus, cut into bite sized pieces
1/2 Large Onion Diced
1/2 Large Pepper Diced
3/4 Cup Baking Mix
1 1/2 Cup Milk (I’ve used skim and 1% milk with great results)

1/2 teaspoon Pepper
1/4 teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper (if you like your food spicy)

3) Once bacon is cooked, remove bacon from pan and place on paper towels. Drain oil from pan leaving just a tablespoon in pan.
4) In the same pan, saute all vegetables until veggies are soft. Add bacon to veggies and mix.
5) In a mixing bowl, whisk baking blend, milk, eggs, salt, pepper and crushed red pepper
6) In your casserole dish, spoon bacon & sauteed vegetables and cover the bottom.
7) Layer shredded cheese on top of the meat & veggies.
