Cheeseburger Pie and Other Variations!

I stumbled upon Simply Suppers by  Jennifer Chandler while reading a few of my favorite blogs.  Then I discovered that I can acquire eCookbooks on Amazon and have them delivered to my PC rather than buying one of those Kindle devices.  Also, I am able to download to my laptop and leave that on the kitchen counter for my electronic cookbook!   Isn't life grande in this modern world?  She was the inspiration of my Mexican interpretation of a great tasting and quick supper!

Cheeseburger Pie

Casserole

1 9 inch pie crust; unbaked
1 tb oil
1 lb ground beef
1/2 c onion; fine dice
2 tb flour
1 tb Worcestershire sauce
  salt and pepper; to taste
2 lg eggs
1 c cottage cheese
2 md tomatoes, thin slice
1 c cheddar cheese; shredded
  Tabasco sauce; to taste
  ground cumin; to taste

Preheat oven to 400F.

Place the pie crust in deep dish pan. Flute edges, if desired. Chill until ready for use.

In large skillet, add oil, brown beef and onion. Cook until browned, about five minutes. Drain excess fat and discard.

In bowl, combine meat/onion mixture with flour, Worcestershire Sauce.   Season to taste with salt and pepper. Spoon mixture into the prepared pie crust.

In small bowl, stir together the eggs and cottage cheese. Spoon over the beef mixture. Arrange tomato slices on top of the cottage cheese and sprinkle with cheddar cheese.

Bake until set and cheese has melted, about 30 minutes.


My personal addition to this good dish. If fresh tomatoes are not available, I have taken a can of Rotel Mexican style tomatoes, thoroughly drained and used in place of the fresh tomatoes. Adds a nice Mexican kick also.

For more of a kick....a good splash of Tabasco on top of the cottage cheese mixture followed with a generous sprinkle of ground cumin.

Ohhh, cheeseburger pie sounds absolutely heavenly right now. :-) The sun has disappeared, clouds filling the sky, and it would be a perfect cold night for comfort food like this. :-)
