Puffed Pizza Casserole Recipe

“My sister gave me this recipe 20 years ago,” recalls Linda Wilkens of Maple Grove, Minnesota. “The hefty, comforting one-dish meal has a fun popover crust…and the pizza flavor makes it a favorite with all ages!”
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/3 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 3 teaspoons spaghetti sauce mix
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup 2% milk
  • 2 tablespoons beaten egg
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the tomato sauce, water and spaghetti sauce mix. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, place flour in a small bowl. Combine the milk, egg and oil; whisk into flour just until blended.

"My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe...it was just the right amount for the two of us! I used my home-canned pizza sauce and added mushrooms and black olives. I will definitely make it again!"

"It's because the orginal email that you got this from says slow cooker AND casserole recipes. You are correct that the spaghetti sauce mix is located by where you find the packaged gravy mixes."

"I second the comment about this not being a slow cooker recipe :-( As for 'spaghettie sauce mix' ... I assume that is the packaged spice mix you can buy in the same area of the grocery store where you buy packaged gravy mixes, right?"

"I thought the same thing. But I know that for every 15 minutes of baking time is 1 hour (or so) in the crockpot on low. So, I will probably try it anyway"

"This came in an email about slow cookers - no oven required, yet it clearly requires baking. An editor must have clearly overlooked it."
