|* BEEF & MUSHROOM ROLL
(from Susan Ward Merk)
1 lb. ground beef
1 small onion, minced
Cook beef until brown then add all ingredients except last 3 and simmer for 10 minutes; drain off fat and blend in flour; cook until thickened then cool. Roll biscuit dough in 12 x 9 rectangle; spread with beef mixture to ½ in. from edges. Moisten edges with water and roll like jelly roll; pinch edges together. Put roll on greased cookie sheet and brush with milk. Bake at 425° about 30 min. Cut in slices and serve with heated gravy. (If dough is not fully cooked in middle of roll, return slices to oven for a few minutes at a time.)
HAM & SCALLOPED POTATOES
4 - 6 baking potatoes (sliced thin)
Put potatoes in ice water and set aside. Melt butter over low heat, add flour and blend 3-5 min. Slowly stir in milk then remaining ingredients, constantly stirring to avoid lumps. Heat until cheese is melted. Drain & dry potatoes. Combine with onion, ham and corn and mix gently. Place all in 2½ casserole and pour sauce over mixture.
