Easy Vintage Dinner

This is also from the 21st Pillsbury Bake Off: Denver Sandwich Ring, Top Prize in the Convenience Mix Division. Made by Mrs. Thelma Yearwood of California.

1 1/2 cups Pillsbury Hungry Jack Buttermilk or Extra Lights Pancake and Waffle Mix

1/3 cup cooking oil

1/4 cup milk

1 egg

1 1/2 cups cubed cooked ham

1/3 cup finely chopped onion or 1 tablespoon instant minced onion

1/3 cup chopped green pepper

Oven 425 degrees

Combine pancake mix, oil, milk and egg; by hand stir until blended. Stir in ham, onion and green pepper; mix well. Drop by heaping tablespoon in a ring around edge of ungreased 12 inch pizza pan or cookie sheet. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes.

Now, Mrs. Yearwood made this with a Cheese sauce, but I didn't want to. It was delicious as is, and very easy to do. Even my 3 year old loved it.

Now, I also made Banana-Chip Bars from Better Homes and Gardens Homemade Cookies Cook Book, c1975. The recipe required 25 minutes of baking - at 40 minutes, the middle of mine were still not done. Here's a photo from about 30 minutes of baking. The outer ones were tasty, though. I've made many successful recipes for holiday cookies from this book, but I don't think I'll pass along this recipe.

My son has an ear infection and we are trapped inside. It's a good time to go through cookbooks and find some new treasures to try from days past.
