April 27, 2011: Yet More Leftover Ham – Impossible Ham and Cheese Pie

Bookmark and Share

I’m not quite sure when Bisquick first developed their impossible pie recipes; I do know they were quite popular back in the 1980s. I’ve certainly made my share of them and adapted many of the recipes to make new impossible pie concoctions. The beauty is that they’re quick, easy, and tasty – perfect for a weeknight meal for the whole family.

This recipe is based on the one from Bisquick for an Impossible Bacon Pie. With a couple subtle changes, it becomes the next best thing to quiche Lorraine without all the work!

Impossible Ham and Cheese Pie

1 ½ cups diced, cooked ham
1 ½ cups shredded Swiss or Cheddar cheese, divided
½ cup chopped onion
1 tomato, thinly sliced (optional)
2 cups milk
1 cup Bisquick
4 eggs
Salt and pepper to taste

In a greased pie pan, layer the ham, one cup of the cheese, and the chopped onion. Beat together the milk, Bisquick, eggs and seasonings until smooth. Pour the Bisquick mixture over the ingredients in the pie pan. Top with sliced tomatoes, if using, and the remaining cheese. Bake in a 400 degree oven 35 to 40 minutes.

Tip: Don’t have Bisquick on hand? Substitute pancake mix (but do remember it will be a little bit sweeter).
