Its kind of like a meat loaf with a crust.
|Fresh from the oven|
1 lb ground beef
6 Tb. shortening
1 c. grated cheddar cheese
2 c. flour
3/4 c. milk
2 Tb. chopped onion
1/4 c. ketchup
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
salt and pepper to taste
Brown ground beef and onion in 3 TB of the shortening.
Add the ketchup and cheese. Remove from heat. Stir until cheese is melted.
Sift flour with baking powder and salt. Cut in last 3 Tb. of shortening, add milk. Knead. Roll out onto a floured surface into a 1/2 in. thick rectangle. Top with hamburger mixture. Wrap sides up over hamburger and pinch sides together so its sealed nicely.
Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 30 mins or until golden brown.
Serve with country gravy.
|Sliced and topped with the brown gravy we had.|
I made this tonight for Steve. He doesnt get it often, because I'm not crazy about it. I didnt have a country gravy packet (I'm lazy that way) so we had brown gravy instead. I had mine with a big salad. The best part is that the outside bread is nice and crusty. Its good with the gravy.
I think this could be good with any ground meat. Maybe ground turkey? Steve wanted me to use up some of our ground elk, but I didnt. I hate the smell of it cooking. It may be a nice change to your meal. And its sure to be a man pleaser. :)
