Miss Cindy's Cheeseburger Pie!

by Cindy Rippe

This recipe is one of my family's favorites! Who doesn't love a good cheeseburger?? Not only does it taste like a cheeseburger from a local drive through, but it's MUCH cheaper--about $1.20 a person. So if the holidays left your wallet a little empty, you might want to try this one out! It's SOO easy. Don't be intimidated by the crust-- I use canned crescent rolls! Serve it with a side salad and you have a quick easy meal your family will love!  

 Here's the recipe:

Ingredients

  • 1 can crescent rolls
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion, OR 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons dill pickle juice
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 cups shredded American cheese, divided

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Unroll crescent rolls and press into the bottom and up the sides of an 8 inch pie pan.
  3. Cook ground beef in a skillet until browned. Drain well.
  4. Stir in onion, chopped pickle, ketchup and mustard.
  5. Sprinkle with flour and add pickle juice and milk. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly.

  7. Pour into the prepared crust and bake for 15 minutes, or until edges of crust are golden brown.
  8. Remove from oven and top with remaining cup of cheese. Let stand until cheese melts.
