Impossible Zucchini Pie and Dessert

Hey everyone-remember the Bisquick Impossible Pies? Well, they sure are easy and quite tasty, so I thought I'd make one while the zucchini and tomatoes are plentiful.

This is a half batch using my 5" baking dish.

Impossibly Easy Zucchini Pie
1 C zucchini, chopped (I grated it)
1 C tomatoes, chopped (I seeded mine)
1/2 C onions, chopped
1/3 C Parmesan cheese, grated
2/3 C Bisquick**
3/4 C milk
2 eggs
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees and grease a pie dish.
  2. Sprinkle first four ingredients into dish.
  3. Mix the rest in a bowl and pour evenly into pie dish.
  4. Bake 35 minutes or until a knife inserted into center comes out clean.
  5. Let rest for 10 minutes, cut and serve.
Notes:
  • I chose to sprinkle the salt over my shredded zucchini, and let it sit while I cut up the rest of the veggies. I then gave the zucchini a squeeze with my hands before adding to the pie dish. This got rid of the excess liquid. Since you do squeeze out some of the salt too, add a little more.
  • I layered the veggies starting with tomatoes. I don't recommend that, I'd mix them all up next time.
  • It took about 27-30 minutes in my counter top convection oven.
  • **Bisquick substitute: 1 C flour, 1 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp salt, 1 Tblsp shortening. Mix well with a fork.
If you like Coconut Custard Pie, This Bisquick Impossible Pie recipe is my favorite! I used a 4.5" pie dish and made one forth of the recipe.

Impossible Coconut Custard Pie
3/4 C sugar - I used 2 Tblsp
2 C milk - 1/2 C
4 eggs - 1 egg
1 tsp vanilla - 1/4 tsp
1/2 C Bisquick - 1/8 C
1 1/3 C coconut - 1/4 C + a Tblsp
  1. Put everything except coconut in blender, mix slow for 3 minutes. (Since I made a small amount I used my 3 cup food chopper.)
  2. Pour into greased pie plate. 
  3. Sprinkle coconut over top (I push it down into the custard). 
  4. Bake at 350 degrees, 45 minutes (about 38 minutes in my little oven). Cool and enjoy.
    Have a happy day:@)

    11. A friend just gave me some zucchini and I love the look of your pie. This will be perfect with a nice piece of grilled salmon from yesterday. I'm kind of drooling over that little custard pie. I love your small servings, Lynn.

    12. I do remember these. I don't keep bisquick in my pantry though, so I have to make up a substitute with flour, etc...

    13. I love bisquick. Is there anything more versatile than that stuff?! I use it for my chicken and dumplings. Everything looks so good! I gotta try the coconut pie though! Seems since I have been dieting, I have a thing for sweets!

    15. What a fun memory! I think I made every impossible pie possible :) when my son was growing up. Funny, now I don't even have bisquick int he house. You've inspired me to pick up some and try again. Have a great day!

    16. I use the gluten free Bisquik which would be good with either of your pies. The zucchini pie looks very good and it is so colorful.

    29. I love using the Spinach Quiche recipe using Bisquik. The Zucchini and tomato one sounds delish too. Will have to give it a good soon. I tried out the Sheet Pound Cake recipe you posted on May 8th and it turned out great. I am always looking for recipes where I can use what I have on hand. It went well with fresh strawberries and yogurt. Have a great day! Tammy

    32. I am frequently getting zucchini from folks who grow it, and there is only one way that I like to use it. I will definitely be trying this one the next time. It looks great.

      I grinned at the groovy picture, too.

    37. Now I can't get the coconut one out of my head. And it's probably too late to go to the grocery store. I'll have to dream about it tonight.

    38. I remember all the rage of the impossible pies! They're really good! Thanks for reminding me about them, Lynn.

    39. Hi Lynn...I know I left a message yesterday, but wanted you to know that I tried both recipes last night. The coconut custard is a huge hit! The zucchini pie is good, but I used cheddar instead. The kids wanted to know if we could try it with broccoli instead...I don't see why not. Thanks so much for the recipes.

    40. Hi Lynn,
      Well you don't think I am going to make a choice, girl I want them both. These are great recipes that I can almost taste, I will tell you that I would have to have seconds on the Coconut Custard Pie. Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and hope to see you again real soon. Hope you are having a great week end!
