Because you friends are so special to me - and so are these recipes - I'm starting a new "feature" here called "Red Box Recipes". So what are those? They are a lot of very special recipes that have been carefully and lovingly stored - on handwritten recipe cards - in a slightly battered, somewhat-falling-apart dear old red box - by my late Mom. So in a sense - I'm doing this as a tribute to her, too - because she was one fabulous cook! And my very dearest friend as well as . . .well, the best Mom a girl ever had!!!!!! I grew up on these recipes - some of them date back to the 1930's - nothing like some good old-fashioned deliciousness!!
So here is the first recipe -
Fry Pan Pizza
2 Tablespoons shortening - to grease a cold skillet.
1-1/2 Cups Bisquick
3/4 Cup Milk
Mix these together, and spread in the skillet.
Top with -
1/2 pound meat
1 small can of mushroom pieces - cut up
1 can tomato paste
Oregano and Romano Cheese on top
Bake 10 - 15 minutes at 325 degrees in skillet, or 25 - 30 minutes on pizza pan in oven.
We had this many times on Saturdays, as a special treat! I can still see my Mom putting it all together over her electric skillet - good times!!! Hope you enjoy it, too!
