Norma's One Dish Biscuit Beef Pie

Norma DeRemer


I forgot that I had this dish until I was looking through my box of recipes. I made this dish while camping in our RV while on vacation back in 2010. Shared it with the camper parked next to us that night and they love it. She copied down my recipe when they left.It was easy to make and can be easliy made Mexican by adding salsa, jalapenos to taste and using Montereay Jack chese instead of Cheddar Cheese. My husband and I love the more mild tast of this dish without the heat.
