Cheddar, Corn and Bacon Impossible Pie

I love the idea of impossible pie.

You used to find Bisquick recipes for all kinds of impossible pies. This one is even better than any of those. It’s a recipe from Rose Murray’s new cookbook 125 Best Casseroles and One-Pot Meals.

Here is what Rose says about her impossible pie recipe:
“When you think there’s nothing in the house for supper, or when relatives suddenly appear for Sunday lunch, here’s the answer. The flour mixture in this vegetable-packed dish magically forms a very thin tender base for its zesty custard filling. Serve with chili sauce or bottled salsa and a cabbage-carrot slaw.”

I’m giving this one a try for sure. Leave your comments below.

For added color, use choped red pepper instead of the green pepper, or mix a variety of pepper colors. Add a bit of chopped hot peppers if you really like it spicy.

If you love bacon, this recipe is sure to become one of your “go to” easy dinner recipes.
