Makes 9 servings at 7 freestyle smart points or 5PP
1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1 large white onion, diced
1 large green bell pepper, diced
2 tablespoons brown sugar

Preheat oven to 400°F.
In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef until browned. Add the diced onion and bell pepper and let sauté until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, dry mustard and garlic salt. Add the tomato sauce and ketchup and stir until well combined. Let mixture simmer over low heat while you prepare the topping.
For the topping, add the flour, baking powder and salt to a large bowl. Stir in the milk, melted butter, and eggs until well combined. Fold in the shredded cheese.
