Grilled Cheese Sandwich Pie!

Total Time
Prep 5 mins

When you're not in the mood to cook, this is THE recipe. Not a sandwich-no bread; not a quiche; not a pie-no crust; just good, plain and fast to do. And only one dirty bowl. Just be SURE to grease the pie plate VERY well. This also lends itself to any number of additions. A great lunch. Or, on the side, a few slices of tomatoes or a small salad and Voila! Dinner! From my collection of really "Olde" recipes.

Doesn't taste anything like grilled cheese; more like a Bisquick Impossible pie. Hmmmm. I am a cheese-a-holic and thought this would be a wower, but sorry. Not so good.

Different but good. I followed the recipe exactly as written other then I cut back on the salt by half. My son said he thought this would be even better using pizza toppings. Mine cooked in 25 minutes. I used cheddar cheese and we all enjoyed this.
