Impossible Pie - Take 2

Recently I blogged about an Impossible Pie that Miss 8 and I tried. Today, while working from home (with a sick daughter) I decided to whip up one for lunch.

I used the savoury recipe from the site that I found the sweet one at.

(We also made another sweet one - well I had lots of eggs that needed to be used and a couple of lemons AND some mini ones for school lunches at the request of Miss 9).

The main issue I have with these pies is that the base is extremely thin to the point of almost not being there. While reading a couple of other Impossible Pie recipes on the web and the associated comments I discovered that some people use Self Raising Flour (rather than Plain) AND butter.

So the recipe I ended up with (for the family to eat for dinner) was:

My Impossible Pie
* 1 cup self raising flour
* 1.5 cups milk
* 3 eggs
* 60gms butter
* 1 cup grated cheese
* 1 cup (drained) canned peas (they were in the fridge)
* 1 cup (drained) canned tuna
* Parsley
* Spray oil

Pre-heat oven to 180C. Spray a pie dish lightly with oil.

Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix until combined. Don't worry too much if the butter doesn't mix in - it will be okay.

Pour mixture into greased pie dish and place in oven.

Cook for 30-40mins

The base seems much crispier ... here's what it looks like:

[UPDATE]I much preferred the crustiness of this version. I will use this as a base in the future.[/UPDATE]

That looks absolutely yummy. Do you think broccoli would be good in this?

Absolutely. Broccoli goes great with cheese, I would probably also add a touch of black pepper.

Sweet. This is going into rotation for winter dinners!
