Impossible Runzas serves 6
From Arthritis H E Cookbook

In the army, they say: "The difficult we do immediately; the impossible takes a little longer." Well, when this recipe asks you to pour a blenderful of liquid over the browned meat and veggies you'll probably mutter, "Impossible . . . I can't believe this will emerge from the oven anything but a wet mess!" In this case, the "impossible" takes just about 45 min., so give it a try. Your taste buds will say thanks! (Never heard of runzas? I bet soon the entire country will love this old-timey Midwestern treat!)

8 oz. ground 90% lean turkey or beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 1/2 cups purchased coleslaw mix
1 tabl. chili seasoning
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 cup water
2/3 cup Carnation n/f dry milk powder
2 eggs or equivalent in egg substitute
3/4 cup Bisquick Reduced fat baking mix
1 tsp. dried parsley flakes
3/4 cup (3 oz.) shredded Kraft reduced fat cheddar cheese

Preheat oven 350 degrees. Spray an 8 x 8 baking dish with butter flavored cooking spray. In a large skillet sprayed with butter flavored cooking spray, brown meat, onion and coleslaw mix. Stir in chili seasoning and black pepper. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish. In a blender container, combine water, dry milk powder and eggs. Cover and process on HIGH for 10 seconds. Add baking mix, parsley flakes and Cheddar cheese. Cover and process on HIGH an additional 10 seconds. Pour mixture evenly over meat mixture. Bake for 35 - 40 min. Place baking dish on a wire rack and let set for 5 min. Cut into 6 servings

HINT: 2 cups shredded cabbage and 1/2 cup shredded carrots may be used in place of purchased coleslaw mix.

When I was looking through the Arthritis cook book I got today and saw this recipe I just had to post it. I too had never heard of Runza. Ann
