April 7th

Our maiden voyage! Since many of you are looking for something that you can pull together pretty quick with ingredients that you are likely to have on hand, the first theme will be "Go-To's". Please share that one recipe(or two!) that you go to most often. That good old standby. Frozen pizza doesn't count! Here's one of mine:

Impossible Cheeseburger Pie
1 lb lean ground beef
1/2 onion, chopped(or about a 3 tbsp dehydrated onion)
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp pepper
3/4 C bisquick
1 1/2 C milk
3 eggs
1/4 C barbecue Sauce
1 C Cheddar cheese, grated

Brown ground beef with the onion, drain grease. Stir in salt and pepper and spread in a greased 10" pie pan. Put bisquick, milk, and eggs in a blender and blend on high for 30 seconds(or beat with whisk until almost smooth). Pour over beef. Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes. Remove from oven, spread barbecue sauce over the top then sprinkle with cheese. Return to oven for 5 minutes. Cool 5-8 minutes before serving. *** To make prep even faster, brown 5 pounds of beef at once then divide the meat into 5 ziploc bags and freeze. Then it's just a matter of defrosting one bag for a recipe like this! Plus, it's usually cheaper to get your meat in larger quantities.
