{Cheeseburger Pie}

Kevin was away last for a couple of days for interviews, so I took the opportunity to make a few kid-friendly meals.  Here is one of the new favorites....Cheeseburger Pie!  This is a Pinterest Find, but I didn't actually pin it, just wrote the directions down. Now the link is lost in the never ending abyss of recipes.  I would LOVE to give credit where credit is due, so if you have seen this, please let me know!!!

1 Prepared Pie Shell (We used Kroger Brand and it worked okay.  Now sure if the trouble was the brand or just me!)
1 lb of Lean Ground Beef or Ground Turkey Breast  (We used Ground Turkey)
1 Medium Onion Chopped
2 Garlic Cloves Chopped
1/2 Cup of Flour
2 tbsp of Pickle Juice (We used sweet bread and butter pickles, but next time I think I'll use Tony Packo's Sweet Hot Pickles & Peppers...the BEST!)
3 Slices of Pickles Finely Chopped
2 tbsp of Yellow Mustard
1 tbsp of Spicy Mustard
2 tbsp of Ketchup
1 tbsp of Steak Sauce
2 Cups of Shredded Cheddar Cheese

- Bake pie shell as directed on the package
- Drop the oven temp to 350 degrees once the shell is cooked
- Cook onions and garlic in a small amount of oil until tender, then remove from the pan
- Cook ground beef/turkey, adding any seasonings you typically use when grilling hamburgers. Grain grease.
- In a large bowl, add onion mixture to the ground beef.  After it has cooled a bit, also add flour, pickle juice, pickles, mustard, ketchup, steak sauce and 1 cup of cheese. Mix up and add to the pie shell
- Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.
- Remove from over and sprinkle the remaining cup of cheese on the top and return to the over for an additional 10 minutes.  Then, it's ready to serve!  Super easy and really yummy!
