Scrumptious Saturday - Popover Pizza Casserole

Popover Pizza Casserole

I haven't made this in a while because it's not really that healthy, but I just thought of it on my way to the grocery store today and I'm going to make it this week!

1 lb. ground turkey or ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped green sweet pepper (I omit this)
1/2 a 3.5 oz pkg sliced pepperoni halved
1 15oz. can or jar of pizza sauce
1 2oz can of mushroom stems and pieces, drained (I omit this)
1/2 tsp fennel seed, crushed (I omit this)
1/2 tsp dried oregano, crushed
1/2 tsp dried basil, crushed
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 tbsp cooking oil
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 6oz pkg thinly sliced mozzarella cheesed (I've also used shredded and it works the same)
1/4 cup grated Paremesan Cheese


1. In a large skillet cook turkey or beef, onion, and green pepper until meat is brown and vegetables are tender. Drain fat. Cut pepperoni slices in half. Stir pepperoni, pizza sauce, mushrooms, fennel seed, oregano and basil into meat mixture. Bring to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

2. Meanwhile, for topping, in a small bowl combine eggs, milk and oil. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 1 minute. Add flour; beat 1 minute more or until smooth.

3. Grease the sides of a 13x9x2 inch baking dish; spoon meat mixture into dish. Arrange cheese slices over hot meat mixture. Pour topping over cheese, covering completely. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

4. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until topping is puffed and golden brown. Serve immediately. Makes 8 servings.
