Not quite a sandwich but not quite a pie, this grilled cheese sandwich pie will have you drooling the entire time you're preparing it.

  • 1 egg

  • 3/4 cup Carbquik** see below

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

  • 1 cup Carb Countdown whole milk or 1/2 cup heavy cream mixed with 1/2 cup water

  • 4 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded, 1 cup


  • Carbquik is a low carb alternative to Bisquick baking mix. In fact, it can often be used in recipes that normally call for Bisquick with only a few adjustments. It has a salty taste so you'll need to reduce the salt in most recipes. It also tends to make dry baked goods so you may need to increase the amount of fat and/or liquid. Some additional baking powder can often be helpful to make your baked goods rise more. In some parts of the country you can buy Carbquik in select stores. Everyone else can order it through Netrition. If you visit the Tova Industries website, they have more info about Carbquik as well as a ton of recipes.

  1. In a small bowl, mix the egg, Carbquik, salt, pepper and 1/2 cup milk; beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Add the remaining milk; beat well on low speed. Some small lumps of bake mix will remain. Stir in half the cheese. Pour into a well-greased 9-inch pie pan and use your spatula to evenly distribute the cheese. Bake at 425ยบ 25-30 minutes. Top with the remaining cheese and bake about 2 minutes until melted. The batter can be prepared and chilled up to 1 hour before baking.
