You want pots and pans that you can get a lot of use out of. Don?t ditch the pie pan because you only make the occasional pie. The rounded shape of ceramic or glass pie pans makes for a number of delicious dishes you can have for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Quiche

Quiche is a breakfast staple, but it?s also filling and nutritious enough for lunch or dinner. Basically an egg ?pie,? the quiche bakes perfectly in your pie dish and is highly customizable ? some cooks add chopped-up vegetables or meat, particularly ham, and others stick with eggs, crust and cheese. If you do wind up a huge fan of quiche, you can also invest in a quiche pan with higher edges designed specifically for this versatile egg dish.

Cheeseburger Pie

Baking mix, eggs and milk form the ?burger bun.? Ground beef, cheese, ketchup, and your other favorite chopped up vegetables make up the inside of the burger. Baked like a pie made of cheeseburger ingredients, this surprisingly tasty and filling meal is ideal for the family dinner, especially with picky kid eaters.

Shepherd?s Pie

Minced or ground beef or lamb combined with carrots, celery and other vegetables of your choosing, topped with a crispy layer of mashed potatoes results in a shepherd?s pie. A classic dish from Europe, shepherd?s pie is ideal cooked and served in a rounded pie pan since it?s a casserole with a top layer ?crust? made of potatoes.

Almost every piece of baking ware you could invest in has multiple users, but few are more surprisingly versatile than a pie pan. You?ll appreciate having a pie pan on hand for those times when a desire for a sweet dessert strikes, and you?ll definitely get a lot of use out of it the rest of the time, if you?re creative.
