Cheeseburger Pie, Round 2

December 15, 2015

I’m going to be real honest here. I hate cooking. It’s a weakness. And something I don’t attempt to get better at as often as I’d like to. The usual suspects are my excuses: full time job, lack of time, too tired, and shocker, I would rather go to the gym! Hence why Dinners on the Dot have always been done by my friend Jane. She’s a wonderful cook but sadly has recently moved to Idaho. I know, tear! I’m hoping she will continue to contribute her genius beef, or cookie, recipes to this blog (hint, hint), but for now, I will stumble my way through the process and let you all know if I find anything that is worth mentioning or has been approved by Mr. Meet Your Beef. This one got rave reviews! Phew.

I’m not sure if you remember, but Jane posted a recipe for a delicious Hamburger Pie awhile back. If you are a seasoned veteran in the kitchen, stop right here and click that link. Make that pie instead. However, if you are more like me and on the Junior Varsity squad as it relates to cooking, follow along below. Biggest difference between the two recipes is this one below does not entail making a crust. Score!

With a craving for hamburger pie and a lackluster enthusiasm for spending my entire evening in the kitchen, I turned to the one and only, Pinterest. Who would have thought an old, simple Betty Crocker Recipe would be this great? Apparently, Betty knew what she was doing 😉

Here’s how simple it is…

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 9″ glass pie plate with cooking spray. In skillet, cook ground beef and chopped onion over medium heat until beef is browned. Drain. Stir in salt.

Spread the beef and onions evenly into the pie plate and sprinkle with a little cheese. Or a lot 🙂

Beef with a Buzz

March 13, 2015

People…People…People…. (If you don’t know the significance behind this, firstly, I pity you, secondly, you need to watch McClintock )

We’re going to start this party with one of my favorite childhood recipes. Let me tell you about a tyke…me. Here I am (on the right). We have always rolled hard, however, I feel we were rolling ESPECIALLY hard this day. Also, this is the perfect time to introduce you to the clown on the left, Kate from Salinas, and the Director of Operations in the middle, Sarge.

The three of us received this cookbook when we were little, some of these recipes still find their way onto our tables monthly. Today we are making ‘Q is for Quick Cheeseburger Pie’ (yes, I’m serious….put your gavel away and quit judging).

Just like with any project, preparation is key. So, I opened a bottle of wine for Brooke and myself, Reed opted for a beer.

Now: food. This recipe has it’s own recipe for Pat-in-Pan Pastry. While I am completely on board with patting it in, mostly because I am bad enough with a rolling pin sober, I prefer a different recipe. Pioneer Woman’s (we will call her P Dub–>credit to Rachel Aja) recipe for pie crust has a little more flavor. So get to pattin’ like nobodys’ business. Put that little number in the oven at 425 for 15 min.
