A quick hamburger dish

I got this recipe from Judy Halter who got it from her sister.


(serves 5)


  1. Sautae the onion, green pepper and garlic in the oil until tender then add the beef and cook until brown all over.
  2. Dump out the grease and add about 1/3 cup of water. Add the worchestershire sauce, salt, pepper and flour. Simmer until the juice thickens.
  3. Separate the biscuits and brush the edges with the egg. Put the biscuits against the sides and bottom of a pie plate so it is completely covered.
  4. Stir the rest of the egg into the meat mixture and then spoon the meat into the pie shell. If you wish you can garnish with a few tomato wedges.
  5. Bake in a pre-heated oven at for about 8 to 10 minutes. The biscuits should be slightly browned.


This gets its name because the biscuits around the edge puff up to look like the petals around the center of a sunflower. This is a great bachelor meal because you can come in from work and make it without much effort, time or dish washing. You can play with different spices to change the flavor. Some of my friends like to put cheese on top before baking it.

If you live outside North America, remember that a biscuit is a scone.


Difficulty: easy.
Time: 10 minutes preparation, 10 minutes cooking
Precision: Approximate measurement OK.
