Dorothy’s Cheeseburger Pie

By Dorothy Zehnder      



1 pound ground beef, cooked

¼ cup chopped onion

½ cup evaporated milk

½ cup ketchup

⅓ cup fine dry bread crumbs

¾ teaspoon Bavarian Inn All-Purpose Seasoning or salt

⅛ teaspoon dried oregano, crushed

1/8 teaspoon black pepper

1 8-inch unbaked pie pastry shell

4 ounces process American cheese, shredded 1 cup (or your choice)

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce



Cook ground beef and chop as preferred, with onion if you like. Drain if needed.  Thoroughly combine ground beef, onion, evaporated milk, ketchup, crumbs, Bavarian Inn All-Purpose Seasoning (or salt), oregano, and black pepper. Spread in unbaked pastry shell.

Bake in preheated moderate 375º oven for 35 to 40 minutes. In the meantime, toss together cheese and Worcestershire. Remove pie from oven and spread cheese mixture on top of pie. Bake 10 minutes more. Remove from oven; let stand 10 minutes before serving. Garnish with dill pickle slices. Yield: 6 servings.


Dorothy’s note: This is very good. I used an unbaked pastry shell or you can try a baked crust.
