Onion Cheese Supper Bread

This recipe came off a Bisquick box a thousand moons ago. It's quick and tasty.

Onion Cheese Supper Bread
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 tbsp.shortening (canola oil, olive oil or butter)
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/2 cup bilk (1% or 2% o.k.)
1/1/2 cups Biquick (reduced fat O.K.)
1 cup sharp cheese, grated
1 Tbsp. poppy seeds
2 Tbsp. butter, melted (no substitutions)

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Saute onion in shortening until tender and lightly browned. Combine egg and milk; add to Bisquick and stir until blended. Add onion and 1/2 of cheese. Spread dough in a greased (I use PAM) 8 inch round glass (or pottery) baking dish. Sprinkle top with remaining cheese and poppy seeds. Pour melted butter over the top. Make 20 to 25 minutes. Serve hot with butter.

This goes well with soup. Tonight I served it with Beef Barley soup with vegetables. This recipe is a no-brainer.
Cut a lean piece of beef (steak is best) into small pieces (1/4 by 1/2 inch). Brown in canola oil. Remove from pot and toss in onion, garlic and scallions. Brown lightly. Add chopped carrots, tomato, frozen peas, chopped celery, chopped mushrooms, or any combination thereof and the browned beef. Season with salt, pepper, paprika and herbes de Provence. I added some chopped sage because of the bounty crop. Add beef broth and water and 1/2 cup of barley. Cook until barley is tender. Check seasoning and adjust if necessary. I added 1/2 packet of Knorr's vegetable soup recipe, the kind you use for dips, but this is not necessary.

I am always exhorting my writing group to eat beef. It's not necessary to eat prime rib or burgers or rib eye steaks. Lean beef is fine, in smallish servings twice a week. Builds up your energy and immunity. All that good Zinc.

Another beefy favorite is the old time Swiss Steak.

Brown a nice piece of round steak in canola oil. Remove from pan and brown a sliced onion. Put meat back in skillet and add salt, pepper and a generous sprinkling of marjoram. Then pour an 8 oz. can of tomato sauce over the whole business. Cover and simmer gently until tender. Serve with salad, and mashed potatoes. Yum! Easy and delicious.

Bon Appetit!
