    1 loaf


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup ketchup

  • In a skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Add onion, cheeses, ketchup, 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper; set aside. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and remaining salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Using a fork, stir in milk until mixture forms a ball.

Place seam side down on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cut into slices.
