When I saw the recipe for a Gluten Free Impossible pie on the General Mills web site we decided to try it. Both Bettie and I remember making this type of meal when we still had kids at home and it was a new recipe going around, somewhere around the late 70’s to early 80’s.
It worked very well with the Gluten Free Bisquick which I don’t bake with, but I will try some of the other impossible Gluten Free pies now. I usually just use the bisquick to flour things with as we didn’t care for the plain biscuits made with it. This however was quite good, maybe a little bland for our tastes but easily spiced up which I will do next time. I am going to try the Gluten Free Taco Pie they have on their web site next.
I am always pleased when I can find a main stream Gluten Free item to use that I do not have to pay a lot of money for comparably or have to buy a lot of ingredients that I won’t use often. This fit the bill on all counts. If you need to cook Gluten Free you might want to give this a try. Be sure to check the other ingredients you use so they are Gluten Free also.
This makes 6 servings. I cut it in half, using 2 medium eggs and baked it in a 8 inch pie pan. The three of us ate it with two pieces left over. If making the full recipe I would use a 9 inch deep dish pie pan. Just double the amounts using three large eggs instead of two medium eggs.
