Try Something New Tuesday # 3

Savoury Impossible Pie.
Welcome and thank you for stopping by to see how I went at making  Savoury Impossible Pie. I'm doing this series of recipes because I'm hoping to try making a few new recipes, I love looking at the beautiful pictures on Pinterest and I'm also trying to introduce the children to new foods and flavours. Today's recipe comes from Renee who is one of my lovely followers, she wrote:
'I've just made this.Thanks 1+1=6 for the recipe. Can't wait to try some for dessert. Another suggestion - Impossible Pie. Just because I'd like to know if it IS possible hahaha! The name has always turned me off, as you set out for failure right from the get go.' So I searched Pinterest but the majority of the Savoury Pies were sweet and because I'm looking for main meal ideas I searched other sites for some savoury options. An Impossible Pie would be good to use in your kids school lunches, to take on a picnic or when friends drop around for an unexpected lunch.

I've eaten impossible pie before so I knew how it was meant to look and what it's meant to taste like, so I was confident going in. This would also be good for school lunches, picnic or for when friends drop over for lunch. However, I did have a few issues cooking it and I think it's all thanks to my oven not cooking correctly.

Savoury Impossible Pie
4 eggs
2 cups milk
1/2 cup self-raising flour
1 onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped (1 tablespoon dried parsley)
200g tuna or 200g salmon
1/2 cup grated cheese
ground pepper to taste
1. Pre-heat oven to 200°C and grease a 30cm round pie dish.
2. In a large bowl mix together eggs, milk and flour.

It will look a bit like scrambled egg before it gets cooked.
3. Stir in the remaining ingredients.

Ready to be mixed together.
4. Pour into your pie dish and bake for 35 - 40 minutes or until its browned on top. Serve with a salad.

Poured into greased pie dish ready for cooking.
5. If it isn't cooked after the 40 minutes continue cooking in 10 minute blocks.
So that's it, really simple to put together and if it cooks within the 40 minutes you could be sitting down for dinner or lunch within a hour of starting. Now my oven did play up so it ended up taking an hour to cook. My children aren't big tuna fans so I was really happy that they ate it all up, Quinlan really like it he got a little upset when he had finished his dinner. When this pie's cooked the flour creates a base and this helps when it comes to serving it up. The other good thing about about this recipe is that you could add any leftovers e.g. rice, chicken, bacon, corn, peas etc and it'll just add to the flavour of the pie.

The Impossible Pie that was truly possible to make I just had to cook it longer and be patient for it to finish cooking.
So I hope that you have a lot of success making this Renee and I'm sure it may become a recipe that you  grow to love. The other good part about this post is that if you want to make a dessert you can Google a sweet version and you'll be able to put it together really quickly. I won't reveal what I'm making next week as it's Quinlan's first birthday and I still haven't decided what I'll be doing.
