1/2 cup of milk and

1. Mix all the meat sauce ingredients to the browned and drained ground beef. Simmer.

2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

3. Grate cheeses, I use my food processor to speed up the process.

4. Mix the topping ingredients in a 4 cup measuring cup until blended.

5. With a soup ladle, pour meat sauce into a 9-inch square baking dish. Top with cheese then pour biscuit mix over cheese.

6. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown. ENJOY!

Makes 6 servings.

Any cooked leftover meat can be stored in freezer bags and frozen for future use for pasta sauce, chili or lasagna.

Serve with side salad or cut up veggies with dip: sweet peppers any colour, cucumber, tomato, carrots or anything that may be in your fridge. The dip could be any cream based salad dressing or sour cream with 1/2 package of onion soup mix added and blended well.
