Brunch Pie – Uses Simple Pantry Ingredients for its Easy Recipe
This Impossible Pie fits in with our times perfectly. The year 2020 has been one for the books, hasn’t it? As I write this, many of the states in the U.S., and countries all over the world, are currently sheltered in place due to the spreading of COVID-19. We have all been asked to stay home, to squelch the progress of this very contagious virus.
Our businesses and restaurants are closed, and people are cooking at home. We are making use of what we have on hand in our pantries and doing our best to limit frequent grocery shopping.
This bacon pie is made from common pantry ingredients, and for those of you who are new to this whole cooking game, it’s simple to make.
Ingredients in Dorothy’s Impossible Pie with Bacon & Swiss
All you need to make this is a deep-dish pie plate, bacon, green onion, Swiss cheese, Dorothy Lynch, eggs, milk, and Bisquick baking mix.
While your oven preheats, add crumbled bacon to the bottom of your deep-dish pie plate, top it with green onions and shredded Swiss cheese.
In a bowl, whisk together eggs and milk, add in Dorothy Lynch dressing and Bisquick baking mix. Whisk until smooth, and pour over the top of the cheese.
If you don’t have any Bisquick, making your own is super easy with my Homemade Bisquick Recipe.
Bake until golden brown. The whole process takes about 45 minutes from start to finish.
As I mentioned, this pie doesn’t have to be served for brunch or breakfast. In fact, when I recently made it, we had it for a weeknight dinner.
In keeping with the spirit of cooking and using what I had on hand, I mixed up some Dorothy’s Cole Slaw. I shared it back in the fall loaded on top of a slow cooker pulled pork sandwich.
This time, I used the red cabbage I had in the fridge, added some carrots and red onion, switching the original recipe up just a tad. I also cut it in half, as there were only 4 of us eating dinner that night.
It made the perfect addition to this delicious meal. My family loved it, saying it tasted very much like my Bacon & Swiss Quiche that they all love. Just more hearty and filling with that biscuit-like middle.
Dorothy Lynch Home Style Dressing & Condiment
“The” Dorothy Lynch created her signature dressing in the 1940s, and served it at a restaurant she and her husband ran at the local Legion Club in St. Paul, Nebraska. The dressing became so popular, patrons would bring in their own bottles to have Dorothy fill them to eat at home.
Dorothy Lynch Home Style Dressing & Condiment can best be described as a sweet and spicy dressing that has a thick and creamy texture. Because of its color, many will assume it’s just another French dressing, but that simply isn’t true at all. In fact, it tastes nothing like it. French dressing is oil-based; Dorothy Lynch is tomato-based. The best word to describe its taste: Homemade.
