Bisquick french roll 1950+
Ron Hannah
Does anyone have the receipe for this .
It consisted of mince meat, green peppers, onions rolled in Bisquick biscuit doe and baked, I cant seem to find the old recipe that I had, the Kids really loved it.

Can any one help?

There are quite a few recipes of this type, usually called something like "Hamburger roll ups", "hamburger pinwheels", etc. Most are rolled, then cut into individual rings, then baked, here is one:

1/4 c. chopped onion
1 tbsp. chopped green pepper
1/3 c. chopped celery
1 lb. ground beef
3/4 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. flour
1/2 c. water
1 recipe Bisquick biscuits

Cook onions in hot fat until golden. Add green pepper, celery, ground beef, salt and pepper. Cook slightly. Sprinkle with flour; mix well. Add water. Cook until thick, stirring constantly.

Make biscuit dough with Bisquick, roll out to about 1/2" thick. Spread meat mixture over all and roll as for jelly roll. Cut and bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes.

Serve with hot mushroom sauce made of 1 can mushroom soup and 1/2 can milk.

Another of the recipes there is this one from a wwII cookbook:


1/2 cup minced onion
2 tablespoons fat
3/4 pound ground beef
1 teaspoon salt
Dash of pepper
1/3 cup fine soft bread crumbs
1/3 cup milk
Biscuit dough (page 24)

Saute onions in fat in covered saucepan 5 minutes; measure 2 tablespoons and add to meat with salt, pepper, bread crumbs, and milk; mix well. (Ground lamb or cooked meat may also be used.)

Mix biscuit dough (ellen's note: with 2 cups of flour/Bisquik), adding remaining onions to flour with shortening. Roll dough into 129-inch rectangle. Spread with hamburger mixture and roll lengthwise as for jelly roll, wetting edge to seal. Cut in 12 slices; place, cut-side up, on greased baking sheet. Bake in hot oven (450 F.) 20 minutes, or until done. Serve hot with Green Pea Sauce. Makes 6 servings.

Green Pea Sauce. Make 2 cups medium white sauce, browning butter and adding 2 bouillon cubes. Add 3/4 cup drained cooked peas.

Did you ever find the recipe? I am looking for it and all the recipes for pinwheels or roll ups don't fit.
Kelly, if you want a specific recipe, you must describe it in detail. There are literally hundreds of Bisquick and hamburger roll ups available as recipes.
