MIRACLE DOUGH CHEESY ZUCCHINI AND SAUSAGE QUICHE

So good - even good cold straight out of the refrigerator!  The substantial Miracle Dough crust is absolutely fantastic with this.  We also used this as a side dish with our meat entree and another fabulous veggie....just made the meal actually.  Great use of zucchini - uses 4 cups!!  If you are not a huge fan of zucchini like my husband, trust me you will most likely enjoy this, as he sure did! 


Miracle Dough:

2 cups grated Mozzarella cheese (500 mL)

2 tbsp butter (30 mL)

1 cup Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, OR (250 mL)

  Grain-Free Bake Mix, OR KetoBake Mix

1 egg, fork beaten

1/4 tsp seasoning salt (1 mL)

Filling:

2 tbsp olive oil (30 mL)

4 cups chopped zucchini (1 L)

1/2 cup chopped onion (125 mL)

Seasoning salt, to taste

2 sausages of choice

3 large eggs

2 tsp mustard (10 mL)

1 tsp dried basil (5 mL)

1 tsp dried oregano (5 mL)

1/2 tsp salt (2 mL)

1/2 tsp black pepper (2 mL)

1 cup grated Mozzarella cheese (250 mL)

 

Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

In microwave oven in microwaveable bowl, melt Mozzarella cheese and butter together.  This took 1 minute and 50 seconds in my 1200 Watt microwave oven.   Be careful when removing the bowl with molten cheese. Place Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2 (or alternative option of choice) on top. In small bowl, beat egg with fork.  Add seasoning salt; beat again with fork to combine.  Add to Mozzarella cheese. Stir with a fork or mixing spoon to form a dough ball.  Knead a little to form a soft ball. If the dough ball is too sticky, add a bit of coconut flour or bake mix.  Place on parchment or wax paper and using a rolling pin, roll dough out to be a bit larger than a 9-inch (23 cm) glass pie dish. If at any time the dough is more difficult to roll out (only happens if dough is allowed to get too cool), nuke about 10 seconds and it should roll out with ease again.  Place dough in pie dish and make a thick edge with the pastry. Cut bits where it is longer with a kitchen scissors and add to places where it is needed (if necessary).  Flute this edge with your fingers to make it look attractive.

In frying pan, in olive oil, fry zucchini and onion until turning soft.  Place in medium bowl. Sprinkle with seasoning salt, to taste.  In small bowl, whisk eggs with mustard, basil, oregano, salt and black pepper.  Pour over the vegetables and stir in the Mozzarella cheese.  Pour quiche mixture into the prepared Miracle Dough crust.  Bake 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven on the lower oven rack, or until the center is set and the crust is a lovely golden brown. Some ovens run very hot, so check after 10 minutes to see how golden the crust is becoming.  If it is getting too dark at any point, cover with a piece of foil lightly over top like a tent (no need to tuck it in to the pie dish).  Allow to cool 10 minutes before serving.

Helpful Hints:  *For a Grain-Free versions besides the bake mix given in ingredient listing, use a bake mix made up of 2 cups (500 mL) almond flour and 2/3 cup (150 mL) coconut flour.  Use 3/4 cup (175 mL) of the mixture.  Or, simply use 2/3 cup (150 mL) almond flour and 2 tbsp (30 mL) coconut flour for each batch of Miracle Dough (I have not tested this smaller version, but the Grain-Free Bake mix - yes!). I still prefer the Miracle Dough goodies made with the Gluten-Free Bake Mix, however, this is a very lovely option.  Still two other options now exist - see ingredient listing for Grain-Free Gluten-Free Bake Mix and Keto Bake Mix.

Important Tip:  There is a fine line....5 minutes can make this crust too golden brown.  You want the crust to be a light golden brown as in the photo above. Mine was just right and a little longer, it would have been too brown. Too brown makes the crust a bit harder and a lot less like the crusts we are used to.  It will be fine to eat...just not as nice.  This is the case with most of the recipes using MIRACLE DOUGH....do not allow the crust to get too dark.
