For this month’s version of the Southern Plates-Picture Perfect Cooking project, I have changed sources just a little. This recipe is from her website instead of her book, but I had to show you all this one. It is so so good! I made it one Monday night and took it to my in-laws and they said that I could make it again any time I wanted to!
To save a little time that night, I cooked the meat, onion & pepper mixture the day before and stored it in the fridge until I needed it. This is a great weeknight meal with a salad on the side. Enjoy!!
1 lb. ground beef
1 lb. Italian sausage
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, diced
15 oz. jar pizza sauce of your choice
2 tbsp. Italian seasoning
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1 cup milk
1 tbsp. olive oil
8 oz. shredded mozzarella (Italian cheese blend is good, too)
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the peppers and onions in the vegetable oil until they just start to soften. Add the ground beef and sausage; cook until there is no pink left in the meat. Drain off the fat if necessary and then pour in the pizza sauce and Italian seasoning. Stir to make sure the sauce and seasoning are completely combined and set aside.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 13×9” baking dish with non-stick spray. Spread the shredded cheese over the bottom of the pan. Then layer the meat/pepper mixture over the cheese.
In a separate bowl (one with a pour spout if you have it), combine the flour, salt, pepper, milk, eggs, and olive oil. Stir until just combined. Pour over the meat and cheese as evenly as possible
Bake for 30-35 minutes and enjoy!
