1 pound lean ground beef or pork sausage*
1 cup chopped red bell pepper
1 large (1 cup) onion, chopped
1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1 (24-ounce) jar thick-style pasta sauce
1 (2 1/4-ounce) can sliced pitted ripe olives, drained


2 Land O Lakes® Eggs, room temperature
1 cup milk, room temperature
1 tablespoon Land O Lakes® Butter, melted
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese


Heat oven to 400°F.

Combine ground beef, bell pepper and onion in 12-inch skillet. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, 6-8 minutes or until onion is softened and beef is browned. Drain off fat. Stir in mushrooms, pasta sauce and olives.

Spoon mixture into ungreased 13x9-inch baking pan. Top with cheese slices. Place into oven while preparing topping.

Beat eggs in bowl at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until light and lemon-colored. Add milk and melted butter; continue beating 1 minute. Stir in flour and salt, with wire whisk, until smooth. Pour mixture over hot filling, spreading to cover filling completely. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Bake 25-30 minutes or until top is puffed and golden brown. Do not open oven door during baking. Serve immediately.

*Substitute 8 ounces sliced pepperoni. Do not cook pepperoni; add with mushrooms.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

This was really easy, and there were no leftovers. Only took me six slices of deli cheese to cover the whole dish.
I like how easy it was to make and my family really liked it. It was exciting to see the finished product when I first took it out of the oven...but I will leave that to surprise you. I will probably make it again but will spice it up a bit more. Thanks for sharing!
My husband hates it when I try new recipes, but he had seconds of this and ate all of the leftovers. A great recipe!
My kids love this recipe! The top puffs up different every time so it's a real adventure and totally delicious. Easy, too!
very good, quick and easy
My family absolutely loves this recipe. We've made it for company and always get rave reviews. Comfort food at its finest, and it serves up nicely, too.
