You can't beat the fabled Impossible Pie for a budget-friendly dish. It can be as sinful or virtuous as you like. Here's a veggie version:
Bisquick Crustless Quiche
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Butter or spray a 9 or 10 inch pie plate
In a skillet, saute vegetables of your choice in a little oil.
In a 4 cup measuring cup . . .
Beat 3 large farm fresh eggs.
Add 1/2 cup bisquick.
Add 1 1/2 cups milk.
Add 1/2 teaspoon salt.
Add 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
In the pie plate, put your veggies, then 1 1/2 cups cheese of your choice.
Pour the bisquick, milk and egg mixture on top.
Bake for 50 minutes.
If you feel suspicious about Bisquick (I know I do), just make your own mix:
Homemade Bisquick Mix

These Impossible Pies will accommodate virtually any mix of veggies, meats, cheeses, and spices. They are great for leftovers (very thrifty). You can sub broth for the milk for a different and lower calorie version.
A slice of Impossible Pie with a big salad is a good dinner and the leftovers pack up wonderfully for lunch at work or school - no reheating needed. :)
It was actually cold here and we made one of the cheapest meals you can make that will fill you up and then some! Pea soup with smoked ham hocks! MMMmmmm!
We have a few family recipes that have been passed down from the depression - and generally they are pretty tasty :) The only one I have NEVER liked was macaroni tomatoes and bacon . . . ICK. What a horrible way to treat bacon! :(
Ah gotcha on the Bisquick.
I never use it, so was just curious what was wrong with it.
