It is called an impossible pie because during baking, the mixture somehow separates into three layers: a base, firm creamy centre and a crust. Just like a pie….. just without the pastry! This is a savory version which is very delicious. It makes a light meal that can be served with some green salad.
3 bacon rashes
1/2 cup chopped fresh herbs (parsley and chives or just parsley)
1/2 cup self raising flour
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup grated cheese (parmesan or cheddar)
Preheat the oven to 200ºC.
Line a baking try with baking paper. Place the bacon rashes on the tray, spray with olive oil. Bake for 10 minutes or until cooked and golden. Remove from oven, allow the bacon to cool slightly before chopping them into bite size pieces.
Meanwhile, place the eggs and flour in a bowl and whisk well to combine. Gradually add the milk and whisk to combine. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
Line a pie dish with a piece of baking paper. Place the bacon, herbs and cheese into the prepared pie dish. Pour over the milk mixture and cover loosely with aluminum foil. Bake for 30 minutes, uncover and cook for a further 10 minutes or until cooked through and slightly golden.
Serve warm with a green salad.
