Press the dough into a lightly greased 9 x 13 pan and pop it in the oven at 375 for 9 minutes… I got to use my new Le Creuset Stoneware that I have been testing out to see if it really is worth all the hype (and price)…
Truth be told, I cannot lie… I am sooo in love with it.
Side track with me for a moment…
My new oven has driven me crazy since the kitchen remodel. I had been burning everything except cookies in the top oven (I was using silpat liners and not having a bit of trouble… which was a little mind boggling considering the other issues) –at first I figured I was just learning the new oven… but after a while I about gave up and started baking most things in the lower oven… totally defeating the point of the double oven feature.
Enter my French friend Le Creuset… everyone claims it bakes so evenly and beautifully…
So, I decided to give it one last try and you know what?!? The four dishes I have baked since in the upper oven have come out perfectly!
No uneven browning.
No need to turn the dish half way through…
Mark me down as impressed.
Now I just need to take out a second mortgage to stock my kitchen with all their beautiful bakeware… I kid… about the mortgage.
I do figure that if they last a lifetime– like everyone claims– then eventually they will pay for themselves…eventually.
They do look pretty displayed too…
Anyhoo… enough of my inner bakeware struggle.
Pop that baby out of the oven after 9 minutes and set aside.
Now toss 1 chopped bell pepper in a skillet.
Add 1 lb of ground beef and 1 onion chopped.
So I usually place dollops across the top …
Miss Add insisted on yellow tomatoes!
