Another Impossible Pie.
People, I am dead serious about finishing these damn things by the end of this year. As God as my witness, I will complete all 12 of the pies from the “No Time to Cook” booklet!
And I guess that is an accurate title for the book–I’ve made at least half of these. And they are all pretty damn easy.
Let’s see how we did with the Impossible Seafood Pie, shall we?
I used fake crab because I had a package in my freezer. And, why would I use really decent crab in a Bisquick recipe? (No offense, Betty Crocker!)
I also chose the shredded Mild Cheddar, because, although SHARP American cheese may have existed in 1982, I don’t think it does now.
Anyway, I had a good feeling about this because it was all ingredients that I like. Crab? Good. Green onions? Good. Cheddar? Good. Cream Cheese? Hell yeah!
So, here are pictures of the Impossible Pie, Step By Step (don’t make me unleash NKOTB on you again).
Here, is the sliced scallion, broken up crab, and diced pimiento. I enjoy pimiento. I feel like it gets a bad rap. It’s just red pepper, right?
Here, the blended eggs and milk and Bisquick are added.
And, now, after baking. Look at that beautiful Impossible Pie! Look at those big chunks of cream cheese!
OK, this was yummy. Seriously yummy. Crab with 2 kinds of cheeses? You’re on your way to a crab dip (and yes, I did add a lot of Old Bay to this. OF COURSE).
Now, perhaps you’re not a big fan of fake crab (surimi), so you can put in little shrimps or canned tuna (Ew. But it’s your life, dude. Live it they way you want to). I highly recommend this Impossible Pie. Serve it up with a little salad and this is perfect for a light dinner. Or if you host a brunch or a luncheon.
Speaking of luncheons, do people host luncheons anymore? Or bridge nights? I really wish that we did. If by some act of God I become independently wealthy (no chance there) or marry rich (even slimmer chance there) I promise that I will host luncheons–beautiful luncheons with tea sandwiches and afternoon-appropriate champagne punches. And this little Impossible Pie is absolutely quiche-y and would be perfect for such an occasion.
I know that I’d be able to get a plethora of ideas (125, in fact!) from this little gem:
I have this in my collection. I just don’t think I’ve prepared any of the luscious lunches and best brunches. I’ll have to get on that, ASAP. I feel like now I am a homeowner I should be hosting more brunches. Maybe after the holidays.
And because I mentioned them earlier, I am still gonna bust out some NKOTB for ya. It’s my favorite song. And it has their best choreography. And Donnie’s hair. And Jonathan’s, what? SWEATSUIT? And the crowd noise. Oh, the crowd noise. Did I mention that this performance is from Showtime at the Apollo?
Let that sink into your brain.
