Deep-Dish Hamburger Pie


2 cups Bisquick

2/3 cup milk

1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese, divided

1-1/2 pounds ground beef

1 small onion, halved and thinly sliced

1 (8 ounce) package sliced fresh mushrooms

1 (14-1/2 ounce) can Italian-style tomatoes, drained

1 (14-ounce) can tomato sauce

1 (14-1/2 ounce) can French-style green beans, drained

2 teaspoons lemon pepper


Stir together Bisquick, milk, and 1/2 cup of shredded cheese. Turn dough out onto a surface sprinkled with Bisquick.

Shape into a ball and knead 3 or 4 times.

Press dough evenly into the bottom, and 1 inch up on sides, of a 13 x 9-inch baking dish.

Bake at 450 degrees for 5 to 7 minutes.

Cook beef, onion, and mushrooms in a large skillet until beef is just browned, stirring until it crumbles; drain well.

Stir in tomatoes and next 3 ingredients. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes or until slightly thickened.

Spoon over biscuit crust.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese and bake 5 more minutes.
