Bacon Cheeseburger Upside-Down Pizza

I started again with a recipe from the first section of the book "One-Dish Meals Cookbook. I didn't think this would turn out, but it tasted like "More" and we were pleasantly surprised.
6 slices bacon
1 lb lean ground beef
1 med onion, quartered and sliced
1 med bell pepper cut into bite sized strips
1 (14.5 oz. ) can chunky style pizza sauce
2-3 plum tomatoes, chopped
6 thin slices of Cheddar cheese
6 slices bacon
1 cup milk
1 Tbs oil
1 Cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt

1. Heat oven to 400 Cook 8 strips of bacon until crisp. Drain on paper and st aside. They didn't need to tell me that. What else was I going to do with them?
2. Brown beef with onions and pepper. Crumble 6 strips of bacon and add them and pizza sauce to beef mixture. Spoon into ungreased 13 x 9 baking dish. Sprinkle evenly with tomatoes: top with cheese slices. I goofed and forgot to buy the tomatoes. Oh well.
3. beat eggs slightly. Add milk and oil: mix well. Add flour and salt: beat 2 minutes at medium speed. Pour evenly over cheese slices. Crumble remaining 2 slices of bacon: sprinkle over top.
4. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes or until topping is slightly puffed and deep golden brown.

Where I have been

Cha asked why I have not been posting. Good question. First, I was hacked into and lost the blog on my computer. Second, Mom had a stroke the day after Christmas and I have been 100% taking care of her. No time for thinking about cooking.

I will get back to this soon with new recipes.
Are you still out there?
