"Bacon Cheeseburger Potato Pie"

I just had to share this recipe that I found on Pillsbury.com for Bacon Cheeseburger Pie. Oh my, but it is good!

We still have quite a bit of hamburger from a bulk order from a local butcher. I needed to try something new and this looked great. Plus, I usually will always have all the ingredients on hand.

Plus it makes 8 servings, so it's great for a big family.

Ingredients for meat mixture:

1 1/2 lb ground beef

1/2 c bread crumbs or crushed saltines

1/4 c chopped onion

1/4 c ketchup

2 tsp mustard

Salt & pepper

Mix this together, then press into pie plate and make sure you press it all up the sides. Bake in a preheated oven at 375 deg. F for 20 mins.

Rest of ingredients;

4 medium cooked potatoes

2 tbsp butter

1/2 c milk

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 c cheese

3 slices cooked bacon, crumbled

2 tbsp green onion, chopped

While meat is cooking mix;

Potatoes, butter, milk, garlic power, salt and 1/2 of the cheese.

When meat has cooked 20 mins, remove from oven and pour off any drippings. Then spread potato mixture over it. Bake for 20 mins more.

After 20 mins, remove from oven and sprinkle remaining cheese and bacon. Bake for 10 mins.

Remove and sprinkle with green onions.

Slice and serve with salt and pepper and sour cream. I think it was the sour cream that made this my favorite way to eat hamburger, because I really don't like hamburger. But you can bet I'll eat this again!
