Cheeseburger Pie

I don't like pie. Unless it's chocolate or pumpkin, I really dislike it. Which is unfortunate because Hungry Husband loves pie and I have the cutest pie plate if I were ever to make one. But I don't, because I'd rather bake a cake! Cake aside, I finally found a use for my pie plate! 

The best thing about this dish is that you really can't mess it up. You can throw just about whatever you want in it, and it'll still turn out delicious. Here's my rendition of Cheeseburger Pie.

1 lb. ground beef
Ketchup
Mustard
Worcestershire Sauce
Chopped onion
Hot Sauce
Milk
Shredded cheese
Flour
1 Can Pillsbury Crescent Rolls

Brown the beef. Add a few squirts of ketchup, a spoonful of mustard, a dash or two Worcestershire sauce, and a bit of hot sauce. Stir in the chopped onion. Add a bit of flour and a splash of milk to thicken things up. Sprinkle in cheese. 

Place half of the crescent roll dough on the bottom of the pie plate. You can pinch all the seams together. Add beef mixture. Top the beef with the rest of the crescent roll dough. Top with cheese if you'd like to!

Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. SO SIMPLE! And the best part is you can add anything to this dish that you would usually put on a burger. Such as:
Bacon bits
Chopped pickles
BBQ Sauce
Green bell pepper
The possibilities are endless. 

You can also omit anything you don't like! The original recipe that I came across a long time ago calls for chopped pickles. Hungry Husband hates pickles, so I don't use them. For the added flavor, I use the Worcestershire sauce. Delicious!

It also keeps well for great leftovers the next day. Enjoy!
Hungry pup could smell my cookin!
