The only impossible thing about Impossible Lasagna Pie is it is impossible to stop eating it! The classic flavor of lasagna in a savory pie makes a satisfying supper. Instead of lasagna noodles, you make an egg-Bisquick mixture that sort of forms a crust. We’re back to the ’60s! Serve with a fresh green salad, some crusty bread and fruit. Mangia!

Decades after I first learned to make them, Impossible Pies still intrigue me.

You know what they are, right? A kind of crustless quiche in which flavorful filling ingredients are piled into a deep pie dish and a milky-eggy batter is poured over. What emerges from the oven is definitely ready for prime time — kid-friendly, but interesting enough for adults, too.

Over the years, we’ve noshed on…

Today we’re submitting to our craving for comforting, meaty lasagna, using easy, versatile ground beef. For this dish, I prefer a leaner mix – 93% lean, 7% fat, since we won’t be draining it (but use what you have or can get). It browns quickly in a skillet, allowing us to get on with the recipe efficiently.
