I believe slightly adapted but I no longer have this book!
Oven Temp: 425 F
Bake Time: 30 mins
Serves: it says 8, depends on how you use this recipe!
Scramble fry 1 lbs extra lean ground beef. Make sure and slip in a few slices of bacon, well diced. Once meat is cooked, add 1 lb of button mushrooms, sliced if you want them to ‘show’ or slip into a kitchen gadget and have your mushrooms made into little pieces!.
2 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp dry mustard powder (the spice not the condiment!)
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
2/3 cup milk
-this makes a tea biscuit type dough (its good as a pot pie topper too!). SO mix up all except the last ingredient. Stir in the milk quickly but neatly. Flour your clean hands, remove your rings and give a quick knead to your dough. Turn out onto a well floured counter top. Again, a few quick kneads, grab your floured (if needed) rolling pin and roll out!
-thing cinnamon buns! Roll out the dough and spread meat & mushroom mixture over the top. Roll up BUT don’t slice yet!
Transfer to cookie sheet or jelly roll pan. Brush top with milk for a soft crust, or beaten egg for a shinier more crusty glaze.
This makes a great Sunday luncheon recipe. You can serve with a consume type soup, finger vegetables. But I’ve also used with a salad as a first course to a more formal type dinner.
And… before I lost weight I was known to serve this as a snack. It does well as a party food with melted cheese drizzled over top. But I’ll warn you now… this is a heart attack snack!
