California Cheeseburger PieFrom henrie 8 years ago
- 1 box (15 oz) refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box shopping list
- 1 1/2 lbs lean (at least 80%) ground beef shopping list
- 2 large onions, chopped (1 cup) shopping list
- 12 oz prepared cheese product (from 16 oz loaf), cubed (about 2 cups) shopping list
- 1/2 cup thousand island dressing shopping list
- 2 tsp yellow mustard (I did not add this) shopping list
- 16 round dill pickle chips or 8 oblong dill pickle slices (I did not add these either) shopping list
- 1/4 tsp sesame seed (I did not use these either) shopping list
- lettuce leaves shopping list
- 2 plum (Roma) tomatoes, sliced shopping list
How to make it
- Heat oven to 375. Make pie crusts as directed on box for two-crust pie using 9-inch pie plate.
- In 12 inch skillet, cook ground beef and onions over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain.
- Stir in cheese, dressing and the mustard. Reduce heat to low; cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cheese is melted. Spoon beef mixture into crust-lined pie plate. Arrange pickle chips over beef mixture.
- Top with second crust; seal edge and flute. Sprinkle with sesame seed. Cut slits in several places in top crust. Cover crust edge with 2- to 3 -inch-wide strips of foil to prevent excessive browning; remove foil during last 15 minutes of baking.
- Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Top pie with lettuce and tomatoes. Serve with ketchup and mustard if desired. I served mine with miracle whip also.
- An easy way to cover the crust with foil: cut a 12-inch square of foil, then cut out an 8-inch round from the center. Place the foil "frame" over the pie.
