Easy BLT Pie

A Bacon-Lettuce-Tomato Sandwich is one of the first sandwiches I learned to make while growing up, and this has remained one of our¬†family’s favorites. There is something about the combination of the crisp lettuce, a perfectly ripe tomato and the crunch of bacon that has made the BLT Sandwich a go to recipe in almost every family. This easy to bake pie is a twist on a familiar family recipe.

While we all love a good sandwich, this BLT Pie is super easy, especially if you cook the bacon ahead. We served it for lunch, and the boys gobbled it up. You could certainly pair it with a couple side dishes for a budget friendly dinner as well.

Once you have cooked and crumbled the bacon, layer it in the bottom of a pie plate and then add the cheese. We used a Colby-Jack cheese combination, the original recipe from Betty Crocker calls for Swiss, which is a little more expensive, so we opted for the less expensive, plus we already had the cheese in the fridge. After you have¬†combined the Bisquick {grab a coupon}, Mayo, Pepper, Milk and Eggs with a wire whisk pour over the cheese and bacon. Then place into a preheated 400 degree oven and bake 25-30 minutes until golden brown on top. After about 20 minutes I covered with aluminum foil so it wouldn’t get too browned. And after you have let the pie set for 5 minutes you can add the mayonnaise, lettuce and tomato or serve on the side for picky eaters like our boys.

The addition of mayonnaise makes the pie moist without adding additional fat from oil or butter. Hellmann’s has a new mayonnaise made with Extra Virgin Olive Oil that has less fat than the regular mayonnaise and might add a extra zing if that’s your thing. Ha… A poet and I didn’t know it.

  1. Love the impossibly easy pies. I haven’t tried this one yet. I need to get some Bisquick so I can because it looks too good.
