I usually have all of these ingredients readily available in my pantry and I love quiche! I make it frequently and I will sometimes make two at a time to freeze them in portions so I can have quiche any time I want.

You’ll need just a small amount of gluten free baking mix. I used Gluten Free Bisquick. You can easily substitute regular Bisquick for this recipe.

The only cheese I had today was colby/jack. Also try all cheddar or Parmesan. Delicious!

Mix your ingredients by hand. It will only take a couple of minutes and you don’t want to pulverize the vegetables.

Salmon Pasta Salad Recipe

24Bite Recipe: Salmon Pasta Salad Recipe by Christian Guzman

The summer is the perfect time for a refreshing pasta salad. Try it with salmon for added low fat protein.

24Bite Recipe: Salmon Pasta Salad Recipe by Christian Guzman

I love salmon! For years, my mom has made me fish tacos with salmon and I just love it!

For this recipe you will only need about 5 ounces of salmon. I can always find the foil packets of salmon and tuna in the cupboard so I decided to make a refreshing pasta salad today.

You can, of course, use any salmon you have. Leftover grilled salmon would be incredible. You can even use tuna or crab, if you want.

When mom makes this, she makes the vegetables a lot smaller with an ulu. With the ulu, you can get much smaller dice while being safe and easy.

Bacon and Eggs Breakfast Pizza Recipe

Bacon and Eggs Pizza gives a whole new meaning to having pizza for breakfast!

24Bite Recipe: Bacon and Eggs Breakfast Pizza Recipe by Christian Guzman

This recipe works really well if you make the toppings and dough the night before. That means that you’ll just need to get up, roll out the dough, top it and throw it in the oven. The worst part is trying to cook bacon to save it for later. Wow, that’s super tough, but you can do it!

Homemade Pizza Dough

I prefer the homemade pizza dough I make in the bread machine. The recipe for Homemade Pizza Dough is here. If you want to make your own dough, I recommend that you check out that recipe because it’s in the bread machine and SO EASY!

Use my pizza dough instructions or your own or even the pre-packaged completed dough, if you prefer. If you’re using homemade pizza dough, try to refrigerate it for at least 4 hours or overnight.

This recipe calls for one-half the pizza dough so you’ll be able to use the other half for another pizza.

Because tomatoes are so wet, I’ve suggested Roma tomatoes. Before you use them, scoop out the insides. That’s where most of the water resides. Just scoop that out and discard. You’ll be using only the meat of the tomato.

24Bite Recipe: Bacon and Eggs Breakfast Pizza Recipe by Christian Guzman

If you like, you can pre-cook your pizza dough a little before adding the toppings. It wasn’t necessary for this thinner crust but, if you prefer a thicker crust, it may not cook all the way and will be a little “doughy” in the middle.

Course: Breakfast, Brunch, Pizza
Cuisine: American
Keyword: Bacon, Cheddar Cheese, Eggs, Mozzarella Cheese, Onions, Tomato
Servings: 8 slices
Calories: 419kcal
Author: Christian Guzman

Ingredients

Pizza Toppings

  • 2 tablespoons Butter
  • 6 large Eggs
  • 1/8 cup Heavy Cream
  • 8 slices Cooked Bacon crumbled
  • 1/2 medium Onion chopped
  • 2 Roma Tomatoes seeds scooped and discarded then chopped
  • 1 cup Cheddar Cheese shredded
  • 1 cup Mozzarella Cheese shredded
  • Cooking Spray

Cream Sauce

  • 1 tablespoon Butter
  • 1/2 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 tablespoon Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pepper

Instructions

  • Make pizza dough according to instructions or use a pre-purchased pizza crust, if you prefer. Note that, if using the pizza dough at the link, you will need to start several hours earlier or the day before.

Scrambled Eggs

  • In skillet on medium low heat, melt butter, about 2-3 minutes.
  • In medium bowl, briskly whisk together eggs and milk until thoroughly mixed.
  • Add egg mixture to butter and cook the eggs just until done, stirring slowly throughout. Don't allow to overcook, about 6-10 minutes.

Make Cream Sauce

  • Place butter in small saucepan on medium heat until melted, about 1-2 minutes.
  • In small bowl, mix together cream, flour, salt and pepper, until smooth and lumps are removed. Add to saucepan and cook until thickened, stirring often, about 5-6 minutes.

Assemble Pizza

  • Preheat Oven to 425°.
  • Spray pizza pan with cooking spray. Place crust on pan and pinch the edges a little, if you like. This helps to catch the sauce from spilling over.
  • Evenly spread the sauce on the dough with the back of a spoon or spatula.
  • Evenly distribute scrambled eggs, crumbled bacon, onions, tomatoes and cheeses.
  • Cook for 15-20 minutes, or until done. Cool slightly and cut into 8 pieces. If desired, garnish with chopped green onion, freshly cracked pepper and red pepper flakes.

Crab Rangoon Crescent Rolls Recipe

Bringing the wonderful taste of crab rangoon to a dinner roll!

24Bite Recipe: Crab Rangoon Crescent Rolls Recipe by Christian Guzman

I love crab rangoon but I don’t really enjoy frying it. I think I probably get enough fried foods as it is. Enter the crab rangoon crescent roll!

24Bite Recipe: Crab Rangoon Crescent Rolls Recipe by Christian Guzman © Olena Beisiuk via 123rf.com

I know there’s some controversy about using real crab or imitation crab. I really don’t mind imitation crab. It’s always in the refrigerator because it’s a quick and delicious snack, low in calories and low in fat.

I had to pick one or the other for the calorie count, though. So, the calorie count uses imitation but you are welcome to make your own choice, of course.

24Bite Recipe: Crab Rangoon Crescent Rolls Recipe by Christian Guzman

This just melts in your mouth. It’s delicious with that warm cream cheese. So yummy!

24Bite Recipe: Crab Rangoon Crescent Rolls Recipe by Christian Guzman

Use a pizza cutter to cut the piece of pastry into three even pieces. There are two sheets of this puff pastry in the box so you’ll have six rectangles.

24Bite Recipe: Crab Rangoon Crescent Rolls Recipe by Christian Guzman

Cut each rectangle diagonally to form a triangle. As you can see, I wasn’t perfectly accurate with my cutting!

24Bite Recipe: Crab Rangoon Crescent Rolls Recipe by Christian Guzman

Put a nice dollop of crab mixture on each triangle, at the wide end.

24Bite Recipe: Crab Rangoon Crescent Rolls Recipe by Christian Guzman

Then roll up to the point.

24Bite Recipe: Crab Rangoon Crescent Rolls Recipe by Christian Guzman

Brush each roll with some melted butter then put them in the oven for about 20-23 minutes.

24Bite Recipe: Crab Rangoon Crescent Rolls Recipe by Christian Guzman

It’s entirely possible that you may want to make your entire meal only on these rolls. Enjoy!
