PCLinuxOS Bonus Recipe Corner: Impossibly Easy Vegetable Pie

Impossibly Easy Vegetable Pie


2 cups chopped broccoli or sliced fresh cauliflowerets
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 ounces)
1/2 cup Original Bisquick™ mix ** See our homemade Bisquick recipe mix
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 eggs


1. Heat oven to 400F. Grease 9-inch pie plate. Heat 1 inch salted water to boil in medium saucepan. Add broccoli; cover and heat to boiling. Cook about 5 minutes or until almost tender; drain thoroughly. Stir together cooked broccoli, onion, bell pepper and cheese in pie plate.

2. Stir remaining ingredients until blended. Pour into pie plate.

3. Bake 35 to 45 minutes or until golden brown and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes.

Expert Tips:

Grab a 10-ounce package of chopped broccoli or cauliflower from the freezer. Use it instead of the fresh broccoli or cauliflower; it doesn't need to be boiled. Just thaw, drain and add it to the pie.

For an Impossibly Easy Spinach Pie, use 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed to drain, for the broccoli; do not cook. Omit bell pepper. Substitute Swiss cheese for the Cheddar cheese. Add 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg with the pepper. Bake about 30 minutes.

Savory Impossibly Easy Pies can be covered and refrigerated up to 24 hours before baking. You may need to bake a bit longer than the recipe directs since you'll be starting with a cold pie. Watch carefully for doneness.
