  • About


  • ½ pound sausage [or bacon] (or ½ can sardines)
  • tomato sauce
  • biscuit-mix
  • 1 teaspoon grated onion or chopped green onion


Spread sausage [or bacon or fish] thin in pie-pan or shallow casserole. Let heat in quick oven and pour off almost all fat. (Leave oil on sardines.)

Make one-half usual baking powder biscuit, mixing with tomato sauce [... or meat stock. It is a question of flavors. One good combination with bacon strips is milk in the biscuit-mix, plus a generous half-cup of grated cheese.] instead of milk or water. Add the onion and any chopped herbs you like. Pour over the sausage, and bake in hot oven until firm and brown [... about 20 minutes].
