Impossible ham and cheese pie

Made a delicious impossible pie for lunch today.

2 T. Soft butter
1/2 c. Parmesan cheese, divided
8 ounces gruyere cheese shredded
6 ounces cubed ham
1/2 cup sliced green onion, green portions included
1/8 c. Almond flour
1/2 t. Baking powder
1/2 t. Black pepper
1 c. Cream
4 eggs
2 t. Dijon mustard

Spread butter over bottom and up sides of pie plate. Spread 1/4 c. Parmesan over butter. Tilt plate to cover bottom and sides of plate with cheese. In a bowl, beat eggs with cream, mustard, baking powder, and almond flour. Fold in remaining parmesan with gruyere, ham, onion and pepper. Carefully pour mixture over Parmesan in pie plate, disturbing Parmesan as little as possible.
Bake in preheated 350 oven for 35 to 45 minutes just until center is set. Cool 5 to 10 minutes before cutting.

It is really tasty and very rich so a slice satisfies me. It isn't for calorie counters tho. But it came out quite low in carbs. With my ingredients it ended up to be about 7 carbs per serving.

Oh that sounds yummy! I've used Carbquik to make the Impossible Pies but this sounds even better.

Stats: Low carb for blood sugar control
I have an old Bisquick cookbook that has a bunch of impossible pies in it. I just sub Carbquik for the Bisquick. I use a lot of the recipes but sub Carbquik. The book is from 1967, but is available still from Amazon for a couple of dollars plus shipping. Search for So Quick with new Bisquick. I've found most of the recipes can be subbed one for one with Carbquik.

Oooooo. That DOES sound yummy! With the GruyŔre, it also sounds quite uptown. I've saved this one for the next time I have ham on hand. Never saw an impossible pie without Bisquick (or Carbquik.)

I would imagine you could add a handful of small pieces of blanched, drained asparagus or even artichoke hearts to make a complete, one-dish meal.

Thanks for posting it!

Sharon, thanks for the cookbook info! I just snagged one on eBay for $.99 plus $3 shipping. What a deal!

Love browsing mid-century cookbooks, so I'm looking forward to its arrival.

You can also google Bisquick impossible recipes and get most of them online. I'm going to browse through them to use with Carbquick. Also, Sharon has some in her cookbook that look good.

This sounds good. I'm guessing you mean the parmesan in the can? I ask because I usually only use shredded parm.

Love the impossible pies. And you can sub in any flour that you want for the bisquick. When I do savory, I tend to reach for the Carbquik. If I'm doing a sweet version, I use the flour mix that I'm currently using, which right now is Jenn Eloff's. But I've also used Kevinpa's also. My Mom and aunt were making "impossible pies" long before Bisquick nabbed the recipes. Try coconut, yum.
