Savory Ham Pie


I guess if I am going to post a recipe every Sunday, I should create a rating system. I will say for this recipe as far prep goes, on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being Really time consuming, I would give this one a 2. As far as taste...a 5. even my super picky eaters like this one. There is green bell peppers and onions in this recipe...shhhh don't tell. It comes from a cookbook my mom got for her wedding shower. Name of the book? Anybody's guess.

3 Tbsp chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green peppers--I actually do use a little less since me and green peppers don't get along.
6 tbsp flour
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 1/3 cups of milk
1 1/2 cups of diced ham--I am not positive, but I think I double this. I learned the vague measurements from my mother. ;)
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 recipe of cheese biscuit dough**

Saute' onion and green pepper in fat, stir in flour, add soup and milk, cook until thickened. Add ham and lemon juice, mix and pour into greased baking dish. Roll out dough on floured board, cut rounds and arrange on top of ham mixture. Bake in hot oven 450* for 15 minutes... Then at 425* for 10 more minutes. Serves 6.
**For the biscuits... Add a half cup of shredded cheese to the dry ingredients of bisquick biscuits then make following the box directions. Cut and arrange on top of ham mixture and make as stated above.

A tasty meal made with left over ham. Who eats all the ham at one meal anyway?
