Make Something Monday ... Creamy Beef Fold-Over Pie

Make Something Monday

I needed a quick meal for the boys and I came across one I printed out weeks ago. LOL sorry I'm just proving Rick right, and I hate that. I have this habit of printing out recipes, bringing them home and then they sit there. I'm trying very hard to actually put them to work so here I'm actually proving myself right ... LOL take that Rick! Ok before you ask yes that is a HUGE pump of Ketchup, I have brought up a boys that love ketchup and I've even got Roy turned into a ketchup fan. Sad I know but heck it gets Cole to eat things if you put a little ketchup on the side. Ok back to the recipe of the week, I found this one on Betty Crocker's website. I actually get weekly emails from them and this was one of the featured recipes. Super yummy and easy! Which is my main goal on most days! Check it out, Creamy Beef Fold-Over Pie.
P.S. One more fun thing, I was watching Chopped a new show on the Food Network where the chefs are given mystery items that they need to make a meal in 30 minutes. One was a cream of mushroom soup and one of the chefs made the comment that it is for "home cooks" that don't know how to cook. On that note I wanted to tell him where to shove his soup and come to my kitchen after working and drop offs/pick ups and see what gourmet meals he pulls out of his rear oh yeah on a budget. Stepping off the soap box :).

Start your engines!
Helper #2 cutting up onions for me.
Brown the meat and add a can of Mushroom Soup.
Add a bag of mixed veggies.
Add a tbsp of ketchup
Start the dough of Bisquick (or generic version) and boiling water.
Make a ball of the dough and kneed it 4 or 5 times.
Roll out like a pizza, put on a pizza pan or I love my stone.
Mix the meat mixture with the onions.
Put meat mixture in the middle. Oops I think I had a little too much.
Fold the dough over. Helper #1 showing off.
Yup Rick's right (shh don't tell him) I'm a messy cook.
Bake for 27 min and then put cheese on top.
Melt the cheese and let cool.
Serve up the boys! Jeez I should have given them bigger pieces.

Creamy Beef Fold-Over Pie

1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1 small onion, chopped (1/4 cup)
1 can (10 3/4 oz) condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 1/2 cups Green Giant ® Valley Fresh Steamers™ frozen mixed vegetables, thawed, drained
1 tablespoon ketchup
2 cups Original Bisquick® mix
1/2 cup boiling water
1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (1 oz)

1. Move oven rack to lowest position; heat oven to 375°F. Spray 12-inch pizza pan with cooking spray. In 10-inch skillet, cook beef and onion over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked; drain.
2. Stir soup, vegetables and ketchup into beef mixture. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until heated through.
3. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, stir Bisquick mix and boiling water until soft dough forms. On surface sprinkled with Bisquick mix, gently roll dough to coat with mix. Shape dough into a ball; knead about 5 times or until smooth. Roll dough into 14-inch round; place on pizza pan.
4. Spoon beef mixture over dough to within 2 inches of edge. Fold edge of dough up over beef mixture.
5. Bake 24 to 27 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Top with cheese. Bake 3 to 4 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting.


  1. Looks yummy! Thanks for recommending a blog designer.

  2. Oh for cryin' out loud that looks delish! :-)

  3. Last time I made a comment on a blog in that kind of way, I was told my food looked like I cook for the country jail, lol, so those professionals had better watch out for you! I got a huge laugh at that, and the fact I too still have my first recipe book a neighbor gave me when I was twelve, and it is still packed with yellow, cracking pieces of magazine and news clippings (before PC's) that I had planned on making, maybe I will put it out! Just for you sweetie...

  4. Oh, and forgetful me...that looks good, I would want more of the soup or I call it gravy on top! Yum!

  5. Looks really Yummy I'll definitely try it :)

  6. That does look yummy. I have to say when it was just meat and dough I wasn't so sure, but with the bread cooked and then the cheese, I was sold. Maybe I'll try this tonight. I have everything except the mixed veggies, but I do have corn and peas, so that should work. A little hint for you. I have a 3 ring binder that I keep all the recipes I print out in. I put them in sheet protectors so they won't get messed up while I'm cooking. I'm kinda messy too. I keep empty sheet protectors in it, so whenever I print out a new recipe, it takes only seconds to put it in the book.

  7. This looks really yummy and pretty simple to make! Hi from SITS!

  8. I'm glad you all like it, it was really a HUGE hit. I literally had to take a piece and hide it under something yucky like pruns in the fridge just so I could have lunch the next day! Crazy ... LOL

    Happy Monday Girls :)

  9. Looks good, and like something the kids would eat {{amazing!}} I will print it up...but I am known for having a stack of recipes printed up and not making them either! LOL!
    Maybe I will prove myself wrong and make this one too:)

  10. This looks so good! I can't wait to try it! Kevin tells me that I am the messiest cook ever! And I am!;-)

  14. I am definitely making this next week! I wish I could jump into my computer and eat it now! Ok, gotta go print the recipe! : )

  15. I love the pics - easy to follow along. It looks like you use a lot of Pampered products - try the food chopper for those onions, your "helper" will love it!
