Pinocchio Pie


Husband has been away. He'll be home for a late super tonight, so the hot pepperoni pie will be ready for his arrival. I think I've published the recipe before but here it is:

3/4 c pepperoni, diced
3/4 c muenster cheese, cubed
3/4 c flour
2 eggs
1 c milk

Place ingredients in bowl in the order given. Stir with a slotted spoon until all lumps are out (except cheese and pepperoni). Pour in buttered pie plate and bake at 400 for 30-35 minutes. The last couple of times I made this recipe the children complained that the pepperoni was too spicy. So, I asked my deli man what would make for a savory substitute. He gave me an Italian salami with a hint of fennel, but not so much heat. He told me to remember its name as Pinocchio. So, as I'm apt to do I've renamed the dish Pinocchio Pie. Hopefully the children will enjoy it's name and new and improved milder flavor. And, if anyone lies to me and pretends they like it if they don't...their nose will grow!

YUMMMM! This looks really good! Bet there are no leftovers on this one....but my guess is there are never leftovers on ANY of Saucymomma's dishes! Did I say, "Yummmm"?

I laughed when I saw your photo because the first time I made your pepperoni pie, I was so impressed with the results that I took a picture of mine too! It IS so beautiful and, like Mia, said, too good for any leftovers. Darn!
