IMPOSSIBLE VEGETABLE PIE



Being a lover of quiche, frittatas, and omelettes, I'm always on the lookout for an easy but delicious egg based recipe...This dish is perfect for tea events and also for a nice light supper paired with a chilled glass of Chardonnay... I made this pie last week and added 1/4 cup grape tomatoes and 1/4 cup green onions to the mixture to give it some more color and to create a nice variation. Enjoy!

Impossible Vegetable Pie
A vegetable pie recipe with broccoli or cauliflower, eggs, Bisquick, and cheese.
INGREDIENTS:
1 cup chopped cooked broccoli or cauliflower
• 1/2 cup chopped onion
• 1/2 cup green pepper
• 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
• 1 1/2 cups milk
• 3/4 cup Bisquick
• 3 eggs
• 1 teas. salt
• 1/4 teas. pepper
PREPARATION:
Heat oven to 400°. Lightly grease pie plate ( deep dish works best ). Combine broccoli, onion, green pepper, and cheese in the pie plate. Process remaining ingredients on high speed of blender or food processor for 15 seconds, or until smooth. Pour mixture into pie plate. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown and knife comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Garnish as desired. Refrigerate any remaining vegetable pie. Impossible vegetable pie serves 6.
Add cooked chicken or any other vegetable you'd like.

I just got off the phone with a friend looking through her recipes for something new for company. I'm shooting this over to her! Thanks!

I have that bisquick recipe booklet too! ( I sent away for it from the bisquick company). And I love making quick pies like this whatever the season. The suggestion to add green onions and grape tomatoes for colour (and flavour!) is a good one. Thanks Rebecca, I have already printed this recipe off..

I used to make one of those impossible pies with Bisquick years ago and I can't even remember which one it was. This one looks light and delicious! Perfect summer meal. And do I see green depression glass?

Oh Rebecca...I haven't made one of these in a while...they do make such a lovely presentation...great idea for lunch while Mother is here visiting...thank you ....:)

Thanks for the posts everyone! I need to get a copy of that cookbook. I think most of the variations can be found online now but there's nothing like having a book in hand...

Willow, yes, it's depression glass. I have a small hodge podge from antique shops and a couple of pieces that belonged to my Grandmother.

Well, real men may not eat quiche, but I love it anyhow! This looks good!
