Cheeseburger Pie

Quick middle of the week dinner, my kids loves it, hubby loves it and I love it too.

It's super easy to make and I'm sure you have all the ingredients needed already, why not give it a try?

I actually made two pies from this recipe, I was able to divide the meat mixture into two pies, made one with the American cheese and one with Pepper Jack, this way I have an extra pie in the freezer for a quick weekend lunch.

CHEESEBURGER PIE

1 unbaked (9-inch) pie shell
1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 teaspoon instant beef bouillon granules
3 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
8 slices American cheese, divided

Preheat oven to 425 F. Bake pie shell for 8 minutes, remove from oven.
Reduce temperature to 350 F.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat; add beef. Cook until brown and crumbly, about 5 minutes.

Add tomato sauce, onion, bell pepper and bouillon. Cook until bouillon dissolves; remove from heat. Add eggs and flour, mix well.

Tear cheese slice into small pieces. Stir cheese into beef mixture; spoon into pie shell. Bake pie for 25 minutes or until filling is heated through.

Cut remaining cheese slices into triangles. Arrange triangles in a spoke fashion on top of pie.
Bake for another 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Cut pie into wedges.
