Print the recipe page! truly impossible pie
A friend of mine who reads the blog and is trying to put together a breakfast plan using her wonder oven, asked me last week about making an impossible pie in a wonder oven. I thought it was an interesting twist and got to thinking about it. Well, I’m so glad she asked because now I’m totally in love with this recipe!! So, what’s an impossible pie, you ask? Children of the 70’s (and their mothers) should remember this Bisquick creation, where Bisquick was poured over top of an egg batter layered with vegetables, meat and cheese and baked. It’s impossibility was that you got a “crust” without rolling out pie dough. The result was a quiche that was fast and easy to fix.
Well, if ever there was an impossible pie, I’d give that title instead to this variation! If you’d asked me even a year ago, I never in a million years would have thought this to be a possibility as a food storage recipe. Thanks to discovering Honeyville’s OvaEasy Eggs, now it is. And beyond that, it utilizes the heat retentive cooking of a wonder oven, which makes it a breakfast possibility even if the power is out. You see, you can’t bake anything — for breakfast— if the power is out. The sun isn’t out to heat your sun oven so you’re options are limited to cooking over a stovetop of some kind. Not that hot cereal isn’t great, but it gets old like everything else.
This recipe exemplifies the idea that in using a wonder oven your pot and lid act as a “mini-oven”, just as in making bread, where you can still bake using just a minimal amount of stove top fuel if the power is out. Read more
