Impossible Bacon Pie made with Baking Mix–Yum!
Bacon is used in all the British Isles for main dishes that are quick and tasty. This recipe sure fills that bill, plus it is savory with only a handful of ingredients. The British use various cheddar cheeses in this recipe, the Irish often use a Swiss-like cheese, called Gabriel, in savory pie recipes like this. I used a good quality Swiss cheese called Emmentaler. It worked just fine and tasted even better!
You all know how much I enjoy having the homemade, baking mix in my pantry (http://gfbakingfree.com/recipe/homemade-gluten-free-baking-mix/ ). when I saw this recipe a couple of months ago, it brought to mind some of the Irish recipes I’ve made in the past. I set the recipe aside to have it ready for Saint Patrick’s Day. They say everybody’s Irish on Saint Patrick’s Day–March 17, and you can be too. This is a quick recipe that bakes up in no time–just right for a tasty, gluten-free weeknight dinner. Enjoy! And have a happy, gluten-free Saint Patrick’s Day!
