Cheeseburger Pie

I meant to make this Jack-O-Lantern Cheeseburger Pie from Southern Living back in October for Halloween, but I never got around to it. Nevertheless, the recipe stuck with me.

Instead of assembling flat on a baking sheet, I did this more like a pot pie. I left out the cute design, but you could certainly customize the top to suit a particular occasion.

This was absolutely delicious...all the flavor of a cheeseburger complemented with a flaky, buttery crust.

It seemed a touch dry to me (although it reheated "looser" the next day), so I topped with a dollop of ketchup. And, don't forget the pickles!

1 pound ground beef
2 garlic cloves, minced
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup ketchup
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1  tablespoon mustard
1 package refrigerated piecrusts

Brown beef with garlic, salt and pepper. Drain and transfer to bowl. Add ketchup and Worcestershire sauce and allow to cool. Add cheese and mix to combine. Line greased pie plate with one piecrust and brush with mustard. Fill with beef mixture. Top with second piecrust and crimp edges to seal. Brush with egg/water mixture and cut a few slits in top to vent. Bake at 425 degrees for 30 minutes or until top is golden brown.
