Labor Day ~ Super Simple Broccoli Cheese Pie ~


Good 55º morning. We "may" get thunderboomers today. Yesterday hit 102º and by 8pm it was still 75º. Doesn't look like any changes for this week. The pollen count here is 6.2 out of 12.

Here is a great site for tips on freezing your summer bounty...

Yesterday was catch up day ... laundry, thank you notes, watering, and a tiny bit of cooking. I did make this super simple easy yummy Chicken and Broccoli Pie:



1 9oz box frozen broccoli cuts, thawed and drained. (I used 10 oz of fresh broccoli, cut up, and quickly steamed with salt, lid off so stays green, just until al denté, drained)

1½ cups shredded cheddar cheese

1 cup cut up chicken or 1 can (or 1 can - 12oz - Kirkland chicken, drained)

Finely diced onion .. or not, I used a bit of red onion

½ cup Bisquick Original

1 cup milk (didn't have regular so used buttermilk)

½ t. salt

¼ t. pepper

2 eggs

Preheat oven to 400º. Spray 9" glass or ceramic pie plate with cooking spray (or use a 9x9 pyrex dish). Add broccoli, 1 cup of the cheese, the chicken, and onion.

In med bowl mix the Bisquick, milk, salt, pepper, and eggs with a whisk or fork until blended. Pour over pie ingredients.

Bake 35 minutes (or until knife inserted in center comes out clean (here I baked it 38 minutes..perfect). Sprinkle on the rest of the cheese and bake another 2 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. GOOD!!!!!


I always make a recipe as close to original the first time. I think next time I'll add some slices of jalapeño instead of the onion. And it needs slices of garlic!
