Plantation Ham Pie

2 tablespoons butter or margarine
3 cups cubed cooked ham
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1 medium onion, sliced
2 cans (10 1/2 ounces each) condensed cream of chicken soup
1 cup milk
Parsley Pinwheels (below)

Heat oven to 425°. Melt butter in large skillet. Cook and stir ham, green pepper and onion in butter until ham is golden and onion is tender. Stir in soup and milk. Heat just to boiling, stirring frequently. Pour into ungreased baking dish, 8x8x2 inches;place in oven. Prepare Parsley Pinwheels; arrange on hot ham mixture Bake uncovered 20 to 25 minutes. 6 to 9 servings.

Parsley Pinwheels
2 cups Bisquick baking mix
1/2 cup cold water
1/2 cup snipped parsley

Stir baking mix and water to a soft dough. Shape dough into a ball; knead lightly 5 times on floured cloth-covered board. Roll into rectangle, 12×7 inches. Sprinkle parsley over dough. Roll up tightly, beginning at long side. Cut into 9 equal slices.

The trick to non-soggy biscuits on meat pies is the filling! Be sure it’s hot when you top it with biscuits, keeping it in the oven – as in this recipe- while you stir up the biscuits.

    This is a delicious “old” recipe. My family loves the ham mixture that goes over the top of the biscuits. I hate to see negative comments about old recipes, especially when they have not tried the recipe. But this recipe is missing the baking time and the temperature.

      Hi Beverly, The recipe description I saw for this recipe said to preheat your oven to 425° & then bake for 20-25 minutes. That sounded a bit “warm” to me, so I’d keep an eye on it while baking. 😊 (I also hate when people make fun of these recipes, especially if they’ve never had them). My mom had the Betty Crocker Recipe Card Library when I was growing up. I remember my dad, in particular, loved this Plantation Pie dinner. He called it “Ham Biscuits”!! Brings back good memories of growing up… My mom made delicious dinners 6 nights a week….and we always sat down promptly at 5:30. ❤ 😊

    This is a DELICIOUS recipe that my mother used to make, and still does! She subscribed to these Betty Crocker recipe cards, and we had so much fun looking forward to the arrival of the next set and to trying new things. I make this for my family, too, and it’s one of my daughter’s favorite meals.

      My mother also had these cards. I used to have them also. I wish I could get them again. This is a great recipe. My family loves it. Especially after Christmas when we have honey baked ham.
