Cheeseburger Pie Recipe

By

This hearty cheeseburger pie makes a great meal with a salad or fresh sliced tomatoes.

Ingredients:

  • Crust:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • .
  • Filling:
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 4 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup pizza or spaghetti sauce

Preparation:

Into a mixing bowl sift together flour and salt; cut in shortening until it resembles coarse meal. Cut in butter until it resembles small peas. Add milk; stir with a fork until all dough holds together. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a circle about 1 1/2 inches larger than inverted pie plate (12 inches). Fit loosely into pie plate; fold edge to make a high standing crust rim. Flute around the edge and prick inside with a fork in several places. Bake pie crust for 8 to 10 minutes at 450°, or until lightly browned.

Meanwhile, prepare filling. In a large skillet over medium heat, break up beef and brown with the onion; drain off excess fat. In a mixing bowl combine eggs, milk, 1 cup of the cheese, salt, oregano, and pepper. Stir in meat mixture. Spoon into prepared pie pastry. Reduce oven temperature to 325° and bake pie 40 to 45 minutes, or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Spread top with pizza sauce; bake an additional 10 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 to 1 cup of shredded cheese. Cut into wedges and serve hot.
Makes 6 servings.
