Zucchini Bacon Quiche

I look forward to midsummer, when the zucchini is ready and I can prepare this yummy quiche. The crust is made with convenient refrigerated crescent rolls. My family has been enjoying this quiche for years. - Sheri Krueger Black Creek, Wisconsin
  • Total Time
    Prep: 25 min. Bake: 25 min.
  • Makes
    6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 2 teaspoons prepared mustard
  • 6 bacon strips, diced
  • 3 cups thinly sliced zucchini (about 1-1/4 pounds)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups part-skim shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil

Directions

  • Separate crescent dough into eight triangles; place in a greased 10-in. pie plate with points toward the center. Press dough onto the bottom and up the sides of plate to form a crust; seal perforations. Spread with mustard.
  • In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels; drain, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings. Saute zucchini and onion in drippings until tender. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, cheese, seasonings, bacon and zucchini mixture. Pour into crust.
  • Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cover edges loosely with a foil if pastry browns too quickly.

    Hubby had seconds and said this was a keeper. Good way to use up too much garden zucchini!

    This satisfied my husband's craving for crustless pizza, since he is not eating breads right now. I was very happy to make him happy! I made it in a glass pie pan the edges formed a crispy "crust." Delicious!

    I found this recipe through TOH several years ago and it has been a hit with with everyone. We have made it many times! Truly Delicious and a great way to use up zucchini! Sometimes we have a little trouble getting the middle done, just wrap with crust with foil if it is starting to get too brown and put it in longer.

    Very good! Even my 19 mo old had some & liked it! I have made it w/ onions & without both times turned out great.

    We love this recipe and have made it many times. I add a little more bacon to suit my taste and it's perfect every time. Make sure to use pie crust protectors or aluminum foil to prevent burning the crust edges.
