I like the Impossibly Easy Quesadilla Pie--but I add a can of cooked chicken breast and extra spices to the mix as well. It is even fairly healthy at under 300 calories per 1/8th inch slice using their recipe. I tweak it to use the gluten free mix and lessen the calories (add chicken, use less cheese, you can also use egg beaters in place of eggs)
Good luck and look outside of the dessert box with the bisquick mix! --Heather
I use bisquick to make pancakes. I use the recipe on the back of the box and then add applesauce, bananas, or pumpkin plus cinnamon and nutmeg. My family thinks my pancakes are the best! I mix mine up in the blender and then pour. This makes it easier to mix in what you want and I always get perfectly round pancakes.
I have to say that I had to give up Bisquick because of sodium (although I still use it for homemade pizza crust). So disappointing! But they have the "impossible pies" in mini versions. Many of the other recipes look fairly diet friendly if you add some veggies and go light on the sausage and cheese!
2 1/4 cups Bisquick 1/4 to 1/3 cup cornmeal 2/3 cup skim milk
Heat oven to 450°F.
Spray large cookie sheet with cooking spray.
In large bowl, stir Bisquick mix, 1/4 cup cornmeal, and milk until soft dough forms.
Turn dough out onto prepared pan. Press out dough into 13x9-inch rectangle, using additional cornmeal as needed.
Pierce dough at 1-inch intervals with a fork. Bake 8 minutes, or until just beginning to brown.
Take out of oven and spread some pizza or pasta sauce. Add lots of chopped veggies and skim milk mozzarella .
Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle basil and olive oil over top.

Heat oven to 400°F. In ungreased 9-inch pie plate, stir vegetables, chicken and soup.
In medium bowl, stir remaining ingredients until blended. Pour into pie plate.
Bake uncovered about 30 minutes or until crust golden brown.

I just bought a very large box of Bisquick and now I need recipes to use it. When I was first married Bisquick saved my life because it was so versatile so I know there are lots of recipes that use it. I remember the impossible pies in particular but back then I wasn't dieting. So if some of you folks have recipes for dieting I'd appreciate it.
