  1. In a large skillet, saute green pepper and onion in butter until tender. Stir in flour until blended. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Whisk in soup until blended. Stir in the ham and lemon juice; heat through.
  2. Pour into a greased 9-in. square baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt; cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cheese, milk and pimientos just until moistened.
  3. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead gently 4-5 times. Roll to about 1/2-in. thickness; cut out six biscuits with a 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter. Arrange biscuits over ham mixture. Bake 18-22 minutes longer or until biscuits are golden brown. Yield: 6 servings.

"we all liked it but my husband said he'd rather have the biscuts on the side instead of baked on top. To each his own. It was good though."

"I couldn't believe how easy this was to prepare and how fast it was ready. This has certainly become a regular family favorite!!! Very delicious! I must say that it will feed 3-4 if you have a sandwich and a side dish to go with it. Still a five star dish!"
