Sourdough Topping

  1. Make the sourdough topping by adding all topping ingredients to medium-sized bowl and stir well. Watch as the batter rises and bubbles up with the addition of baking powder! So fun.


  1. NOTE: Cook ingredients in oven safe pan. If you don't have a pan that can be cooked on stove top and then transferred to the oven, you can cook your filling ingredients in a regular pan and then transfer to a casserole dish.

  2. Preheat oven to 400F.

  3. Sauté garlic in some olive oil, then add meat and cook until browned. Add in remaining veggies and herbs of choice and let cook until slightly tender. You don't need to fully cook the filling on the stove as it will be baking in the oven for 25-30 minutes.

  4. Once cooked, pour sourdough topping on top and transfer to oven. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until topping is golden brown and fully cooked through.

  5. Serve right away with a big side salad.
