Creative Ramblings of One Crunchy Mama

Impossible Pie

Remember the impossible chicken pie recipe from the back of the Bisquick box? You know, the one everyone’s mom made at one time or another?

Well I do, and I have improvised that recipe a thousand different ways to make some pretty yum-o-licious dinners that my family loves.

Just thought I’d share 2 of our favorites.. they are super easy and quick!

Enjoy!


Cheeseburger and Fri Pie

 

1lb ground beef

1 small onion chopped

1 small tomato chopped

2 medium potatoes chopped

at least 6oz of shredded cheddar (depending on how cheesy you like things)

salt

pepper

ketchup

worcestershire sauce

 

2 eggs

1 cup bisquick

¼ cup milk (I use soymilk but you can use whatever you like)

 

Boil chopped potatoes with a bit of salt and pepper until cooked, you want them soft but firmer than mashed.

 

Brown ground beef with chopped onion, a few splashes worcestershire, and a bit of salt and pepper. Drain and stir in chopped tomato. Leave on medium heat a few minutes to char the bottom a bit to give it a little burnt grill flavor. Remove from heat until potatoes are finished.

 

When potatoes are done, drain and add them to the beef mixture. Put on low heat. Sprinkle 2/3 of the cheese on top.

 

Mix bisquick, eggs, milk and a squirt or two of ketchup till well blended.

Pour bisquick mixture over beef and potatoes. Sprinkle on remaining cheese. Turn heat up to medium/low for about 10 minutes. Turn back to low and cover till a toothpick comes out clean.

 

(I like to top this with ketchup and pickle relish)

 

 


 

ChickenTater Pie

 

1 large (or 2 medium) chicken breast cooked through and diced

2 medium potatoes chopped

1 small onion chopped

1 can corn (or 1 small frozen package)

salt

pepper

 

1 egg

1 and ½ cup bisquick

½ cup milk (or soymilk/ricemilk)

¼ cup beer

 

2 cups chicken gravy (either homemade or 1 can should do it)

 

Boil potatoes and onions with salt and pepper till ready to mash. Drain.

 

Combine cooked chicken, corn and potatoes in pan over medium/low heat.

 

Mix egg, bisquick, milk and beer well and pour over chicken mixture. Cook uncovered for 10 minutes then turn heat to low and cover until toothpick comes out clean.

 

Top with gravy to taste.

 

(sometimes I put a little pat of butter on top of my slice.. my hubs likes to top this one with bbq sauce or onion dip)

 


Keep in mind that you can make changes to whatever you like and add more spices or veggies to suit your own tastes. When mixing up the bisquick topping, you can add more or less depending on what kind of topping you like. Less bisquick will make it lighter and more egglike.. more will make it denser and more biscuit-ish… the beer gives it fluff and when you add that you want to fold it in for maximum fluffiness.. haha enjoy!

    I’m going to print those off tomorrow at work.  Sound like some good winter comfort foods.

    Mmmmm… definately going to have to try these out.  I wasn’t sure what to do for dinner tonight.  I was in the mood for something “different” but all we have is chicken and ground beef.  Now I have an option for either one!  LOL
