This is from our Church cookbook, it's very simple and so yummy! Something different when you don't know what to do with ground beef. Serve it with mashed potatoes or French Fries and the kids will love it. This is the kid friendly version, you can spice it up with some chiles or hot pepper sauce if you want to. We like it as is served with HP sauce.
- 1 unbaked 9-inch pie crust, chilled
- 1⁄2 lb ground beef
- 1 medium onion, finely chopped
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
- 1 1⁄2 cups milk
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 minced garlic clove (optional)
- Brown ground beef with onion and garlic, drain fat off well.
- Stir flour, salt and pepper over browned beef.
- Spread mixture in pie shell.
- Spread cheeses over this.
- Whisk milk, eggs and worcestershire sauce together and carefully pour over ground beef and cheddar.
- Bake at 400 degrees F for 35-40 minutes.
This was only okay. We ate it, but it was too quichey and liquidey for our tastes. Next time we're going to try it with a LOT less milk and a LOT fewer onions. The onions were just overpowering and we didn't even add them all. Just wasn't a favorite at our house.
Okay, after reading reviews I tweeked this a bit .. and a warning-I'm a bit of an unorthodox cook :) I accidentally had the oven at 415 degrees but it worked. I baked the crust for 10 minutes before adding anything in it. I browned the hamburger and garlic in one pan and for some reason put the onions in another, and then decided to add a package of taco seasoning to the onions. I put the hamburger and garlic into the crust and then put a little over a cup of sharp cheddar cheese, as well as some Colby Monterrey jack cheese. Then I realized I hadn't put the onion/taco seasoning mix in so I put that on top of the cheese. Then mixed it up a bit and put more cheddar cheese on top. I used a little less than 1 cup of milk, and 3 tbsp of Worcestershire sauce. I cooked it in the bottom rack of the oven for about 20 minutes! Took it out and it was great! DH loved it, I thought it was yummy but next time I will use a little less taco seasoning. We also topped with sour cream :) Thanks for the great recipe!
I am giving this three stars because the cooking time is more like an hour- the center does not cook unless the pie is on the bottom rack which I did after the 40 minutes. The 400 degrees overcooked the top of the pie. I decreased the amount of milk to 1 cup, added one more tablespoon of worcestershire to make 3 total. Also I would recommend the deep dish crust. I sauteed onion and added extra garlic with the hamburg along with red pepper flakes, sage, paprika, fresh basil, salt and pepper, 1/4 cup of tomato sauce, chopped broccoli, mushroom, and sundried tomato. It tasted great after it finally cooked. I would also recommend beating th milk/egg mix until they become foamy so the texture of the pie is more firm. Next time, I will bake the crust for 10 minutes before filling as it was too soft on the bottom.
