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.
I hate to leave a poor review, but this just didn't turn out for us. The middle never actually set up even after almost an hour in the oven. I finally had to take it out because the crust edges were burning. We tried a couple of bites but just couldn't eat it as the center was a milky, floury puddle. We were all disappointed because the recipe sounded great and the pictures looked delicious. I'm not sure what could have gone wrong, but this one just didn't work.
I've been making this recipie for the last 15 years. The recipie came from a book Cooking with a Food Processor by General Electric. I add sliced mushrooms.. however you can also add frozen mixed vegetables for variation. I season my hamburger meat as I would my meat loaf or hamburgers...I do add a little more Worcestershire sauce than called for...it gives a more robust flavor....
I dont know if I really liked this, or if I was just so hungry, but I scarfed this down! It tastes just like a hamburger to me. Next time I think I will mix the cheese/egg mix in with the meat to make it a little less dense, and to add some more flavor to the meat mix. I didnt have a pie crust, and didnt have time to make one, so I used crescent rolls. I Unrolled them, and stretched a little in the pan. I think I will use those for now on when I make this. The buttery crust was really good with the meat mix. All in all, this will probably be on my meal chart in the future.
I can't say I loved this meal, hence the 3 star rating. It was a little to "eggie" for me. Surprisingly, although both my kids and my husband rated it a 3, they did eat it, which is a big bonus! If I could figure out a way to lessen the egg taste, and add more flavor to it, I would consider making it again. Doubtfull I will take the time to do either.
My kids and their friends thank you. (DH and I do too...lol) I made this the other night for dinner when the kids had friends overnight. They all ate this and asked for seconds (which to me is the biggest compliment). I made three pies and that was perfect. I served this was oven fries and brussel sprouts. Thank you for posting, I will be making this on a regular basis.
My family gave this 5 stars. DH and the 3 kids (age 2-12) ate it up and wanted more. I think I would like a little more flavor. I only had cheddar (not sharp), so that would help - swiss might be nice too. I had more that 1/2 lb of ground beef, so I probably should have used a little more salt and pepper. Also, my milk/egg mixture overflowed - I think I would cut back to 1.25 c of milk, and maybe use some 1/2 and 1/2 (I used skim).
Very tasty! I don't care for onion but used onion powder, and added some red pepper flakes. Looking forward to leftovers for breakfast!
