It is Friday. Our weather has finally given us a break. It is amazing just how balmy 40 degrees can feel! The snow is melting and my flip flops are calling my name. I won't dig my sandals out just yet, but I am ready for spring! I know, I know. I have a long ways to go.
If only there was a medication to get me through the rest of winter. One without side effects or dangerous warnings. And, legal.
Wait! There is such a thing. I believe it's called dark chocolate. Problem is, I am pretty sure I can pack away more of that stuff than any doctor would prescribe. And, the scale always promises to reveal the side effects. Stupid scale.
Today I am going to share another one of our favorite winter meals. It, like last week's recipe, requires some Bisquick. You might as well know, I like me some Bisquick. I have several recipes that call for it and they NEVER fail me. Plus, I can always mix up some pancakes on a moments notice. Bisquick also makes a low fat version and it works just as well in all of the recipes.
I should mention that this is a recipe you can easily tailor to your tastes. We prefer to use sweet peppers and a sweet barbecue sauce. You can go spicy with this and use green peppers and a spicy barbecue sauce. Either way, it is delightful!
Barbecue Beef Pie
Doesn't it look dreamy? It is!
1 pound lean ground beef
1 small red pepper, chopped (1/2 cup)
1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
2/3 cup of your favorite barbecue sauce
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup Bisquick
1 cup milk
1. Cook beef, pepper, and onion in skillet over medium heat, until beef is brown. Drain. Stir in 1/3 cup barbecue sauce. Spread into a greased pie plate. Sprinkle with 3/4 cup of cheese.
2. In a small bowl, stir Bisquick, milk, and eggs until blended. Pour over beef mixture.
3. Bake uncovered at 400 degrees for 25 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining 3/4 cup of cheese and bake for about 5 more minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
Have a fabulous weekend!
