Cheeseburger Pie

Supposedly, this was a popular dish for teenagers in the 1960's, before pizza replaced it as a favorite party food.  Can anyone maybe 15 years or so older than me confirm this?  I made it for a church supper tonight; kids didn't care for it much but it was a big hit with the over-fifty set.
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons Bisquick
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/2 large onion, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 sliced tomatoes
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar
Mix 1 cup Bisquick with 1/4 cup water to make soft dough.  Line pie pan with rolled biscuit dough.  Brown ground beef with onion, season with salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce.  Sprinkle beef with remaining 2 tablespoons Bisquick, stir until thick. Put meat mixture in pir crust. Beat eggs and mix with cottage cheese, pour on top of beef.  Top with sliced tomato, sprinkle cheese over all.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
