I’ve managed to avoid the “Impossibly Easy Pies’ recipes by Bisquick… and I honestly can’t explain why… I recently came across one of the recipes and decided to make a variation of it… I like the combination of apple, breakfast sausage and cheese… and thought I’d give it a try… I was pleasantly surprised.. not only was it easy.. but pretty darn tasty.. it was a nice addition to our weekend breakfast… it went perfectly with some scrambled eggs.
I made a few changes from the Betty Crocker original recipe… the original had mushrooms.. I didn’t want mushrooms in this.. so I used a chopped apple instead. I didn’t add salt… I felt the sausage had more than enough salt in it. I also increased the baking mixture…
Use whatever breakfast sausage is your favorite…
I used a Granny Smith apple… which did not have the strong apple flavor it has when it’s in season.. so the apple flavor was extremely light… but still apparent.
I did use a measuring spoon to measure the Baking mixture and a ¼ cup measuring cup to measure the Sausage mixture into the muffin tin… this way they were all exactly the same… and baked evenly.
I highly recommend you use a non-stick pan. I used mine and I still had a couple stick a little when I took them out of the pan. They didn’t leave too much off the bottom, so they looked fine.. but I just want to caution you that a non-stick pan AND spraying it with cooking oil is recommended.
Figure 2 mini pies per person or 6 servings.
I hope you try this super easy delicious mini pie…
