A progressive meal or recipe hop is a party in which each successive course is prepared and eaten at the residence of a different host. It's a frugal and fun way to share meals with friends that has been around for decades, perhaps even centuries. Because each person is only responsible for one course of the meal it can be very frugal. The travel and company of sharing the meal at different residences makes it entertaining and fun. Plus, it's a great way to pick up new recipes, tips, and ideas. With the help and expertise of some other fantastic women bloggers we've decided to host a virtual progressive meal (ours will last all day). Hopefully, you will find this virtual progression not only fun, but you'll find some wonderful new blogs to follow and pick up some new recipes and tips. I've included the daily menu, along with the links for each course. Each blogger has contributed a favorite recipe to share with you. I hope you'll enjoy this very special event. Feel free to leave your hostess feedback as we plan for our next progressive dinner.
I'm kicking it off with a recipe that I've modified to the liking of my daughter and I. It's a great fill in for pizza! A fresh green salad, pasta salad, or even chips go great with your pizza pie and keep it from being a heavy meal. Let me know what you think.
2 cups Original Bisquick® mix
1 cup milk
4 ounces thinly sliced pepperoni and salami
1 1/2 cups shredded Mozzerela (6 ounces)
1/2 cup sliced or chopped green and black olives (optional)
Italian or Pizza Seasoning (optional)
Step 1 - Optional, but cuts out a LOT of fat and grease.
Spread the pepperoni out on a layer of paper towels (2 or 3 thick) and cover with a layer of paper towels. Microwave for about 10-15 seconds. Remove from microwave and roll the paper towels like a scroll. Set the pepperoni aside and repeat with the salami. You may need to use fresh paper towels.
Heat oven to 400°F. Spray round pie size baking dish with cooking spray. I prefer to use a glass dish.
Stir Bisquick mix, milk and egg in medium bowl with wire whisk or fork until blended. Spread half of the batter in baking dish. Sprinkle with about 3/4 c of cheese, then a layer of pepperoni, salami, and olives. Top with the remaining cheese. Spread remaining batter over top. Sprinkle the top with pizza
**I like olives, but my daughter doesn't, so I only put olives on my side. When I sprinkle the top with seasoning, I make sure to only sprinkle my side so I know which side has the olives.
Bake uncovered about 29 minutes or until golden brown and center is set. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Bake about 3 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting.
I occassionally use ground Italian sausage in addition to the other meats, but make sure that it is well drained because it tends to be very greasy.
This recipe is modified from The Betty Crocker Baked Turkey, Cheddar and Bacon Sandwich recipe.
