This has been a favorite of the "men at Estelle's"
for years!
It's an old Southern Living recipe that I often
served for lunch on a weekend
or for a busy weeknight dinner after
soccer practice! 

Rob had requested this
for at least one dinner when he came home for
the weekend! 
"Your wish is my command!"

1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped red pepper
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup Italian breadcrumbs

1 T. chili powder
1/2 t.salt
1 t. black pepper
1 t. Italian seasoning
1 unbaked pie shell
1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Brown chuck, onion and red peppers in a medium skillet
until meat is browned and cooked through. Drain fat.

Heat about 3 minutes. Remove from heat.

  1. My husband and grand daughter could eat this.

    And I would use a store-bought pie shell for this.. :-)

    Husband is making Stroganoff for tonight. They have regular noodles, and I have G/F. But probably won't bother with them. Just enjoy it, by itself. With salad. And Newman's Lemonade. :-)


    1. Stroganoff is my husband's favorite Tessa...he loves his over rice! Dinner sounds wonderful....hope y'all have a very great weekend ahead...we are a bit rainy down here!!!Love your new blog look!

  2. Betsy, It sure looks good. So easy . I love the pictures. The little fellow with the watermelon, is adorable. Blessings, xoxo, Susie
