  • ** Meat **
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup diced onion, fresh OR frozen
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black fine grind pepper
  • ** Batter **
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 envelopes Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup very warm water (120° to 130°F)
  • 2 tablespoons corn oil
  • ** Toppings **
  • 1/3 cup Thousand Island salad dressing
  • 8 pickle slices OR 1-1/2 tablespoons relish
  • Ketchup and mustard, to taste
  • 6 slices American cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon whole white sesame seed


Brown ground beef over medium-high heat, breaking up beef with a spoon as it cooks.  Add onion, salt and pepper; cook until almost tender (about 3 to 4 minutes). Remove from heat; drain if necessary.

Mix batter ingredients in a pre-sprayed 9-1/2-inch deep dish pie plate while meat browns.

Top batter with salad dressing, followed by the cooked meat mixture; spread evenly over surface of dough. Layer with pickles, ketchup, mustard and cheese slices.  Sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired.

Bake by placing in a COLD oven; turn oven to 350°F.  Bake for 30 minutes or until done.
