CHEESEBURGER PIE

adapted from Ellen's Kitchen

 

i decided to make this a bit more healthy by using ground turkey, 1/2 cup nonfat-1/2 cup whole milk and substituting 2 egg beaters and 1 egg white for the 2 whole eggs. i also used reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese. season the ground meat to your taste. i used cumin, Mex. chili powder, garlic salt and a bit of oregano.
(original recipe below)

 

2 cups (1 lb.) cooked ground beef

 

1 cup chopped onion

 

2 finely chopped garlic cloves (optional)

 

1 cup milk

 

1/2 cups baking mix

 

1/2 teaspoon salt

 

2 large eggs...use real eggs, it's better

 

1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Grease 9-inch pie plate. Cook ground beef and onion until beef is brown, drain. Stir in salt. Spread in pie plate, sprinkle with cheese. Stir remaining ingredients with fork until blended. Pour into pie plate. Bake 25 minutes(30-35 at high altitudes) or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Makes 6 servings.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE...mine was definitely NOT done after 25 min. it was, however, getting nice and brown on top. when i stuck the knife in it was really wet so i tented with foil and kept it in for approx 10 minutes longer. just make sure you do the test because the top can be deceiving. also i let mine set for about 10 min before cutting and serving.

 

Variation: IMPOSSIBLE MEXICAN PIE: Season cooked drained hamburger with taco seasoning mix. Add 1 small can (4-6 ounces) drained diced green chilies. Garnish finished pie with chunky salsa and sour cream.
