Hamburger Pie

Always looking for something new to do with ground beef.   Grilling is out right now, my grill is under several inches of snow with more on the way.   I ran across this recipe on Pinterest and thought I'd give it a run by the guys.   I made quite a few adjustments to get it by them, and it was mostly enjoyed by all.

They will not eat chunks of veggies, so I used minced dried onions, 1t celery salt and grated the carrots on a microplane.  I used Progresso Recipe Starter in Fire Roasted Tomato, and that hung Jake up a bit- next time I'll use something else or run it through the food processor.

I had debated making a potato side dish, but this turned out to be filling enough on it's own.

Heat oven to 400º.   Brown ground beef with minced onion and celery salt until no longer pink.    Drain grease.   Add carrot, garlic, tomato sauce, worcestershire, cheese and pepper.   Let cool slightly.

Fit bottom crust into pie pan and set on lined baking sheet.   Add meat mixture.   Top with second crust, fold under and crimp.   Brush with egg wash.   Slit top to allow steam to escape. 

Bake for 15 mins, drop temperature to 350º.   Bake for an additional 20 to 25 mins, until the top is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.

Can make ahead-
TO FREEZE: Let cool completely. Cover in plastic wrap and freeze. Cover in foil and place back in freezer.

TO SERVE: Unwrap, place pie on a baking sheet and bake at 400°F until heated through, 40 to 45 minutes.
