Q is for Quick Cheeseburger Pie - ABCs of Homeschooling

This is a recipe that Sophia has been looking forward to making. The Quick Cheeseburger Pie is from the children's cookbook Alpha-Bakery, and was easy to make. Everyone enjoyed it, and it will be one that we'll be making again.

The Quick Cheeseburger Pie has all the components of a cheeseburger: meat, onions, cheese, pickles, and a crust (which acts like the bun). It can be eaten plain or dipped in ketchup and mustard if you want to make it taste even more like a cheeseburger.


Pat In The Pan Pastry (below)
1 pound hamburger
1/2 -3/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup flour
1/3 cup dill pickle juice
1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup chopped dill pickles
2 cups shredded cheese


Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Prepare pastry (below), and pat in bottom and up sides of round pan 8 inches x 1 1/2 inches. Bake 15 minutes.

Cook beef, onion, and garlic in pan until brown, drain. Sprinkle with salt and flour. Stir in pickle juice, milk, pickles and 1 cup cheese. Spoon into dish.

Bake 15 minutes, sprinkle with 1 cup cheese bake until crust is golden brown, about 15 more minutes

Pat-In-Pan Pastry

1 1/3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening


Mix these together then cut in 1/2 cup shortening with pastry blender or fork until the size of tiny peas. Sprinkle with 3-4 tablespoons water, 1 tablespoon at a time. Stirring with fork after each addition. Mix lightly until all flour is moistened and pastry almost cleans from side of bowl (add 1-2 teaspoons water if necessary.)

Pickles and I don't agree, but the rest of it sounds really good! I'm waiting to see what you make when it comes to Z--LOL! ;)
