Hamburger Pie

Susan Feliciano


OK, nothing fancy. I made this one up when the kids were small because I didn't feel like making and frying individual hamburgers, and besides I was out of buns and didn't want to run to the store.
Now it's one of the "comfort food memories" of our family.

20 Min


35 Min


1 lb
ground beef
1 medium
onion, chopped very fine
1 can(s)
crescent rolls or other pastry of your choice
1/2 c
ketchup (approximate)
a few squirts of mustard
salt and pepper
1/2 c
mayonnaise (or more if you like)
2 c
grated cheddar cheese
6 slice
bacon, cooked and crumbled (optional)
dill pickle slices or pickle relish (optional)
chopped tomatoes, optional
shredded lettuce, optional

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350°F.
Brown the ground beef and the onion in a medium skillet over medium heat. Cook just enough to get the pink out; do not let it dry out.
Spread the Crescent roll dough like a crust over the bottom of an 8x12-inch baking dish.
Spread the crust with the ketchup. I didn't measure this amount exactly; I just squirted it on until I had enough to spread out. Add a few squirts or squiggly lines of mustard on top of the ketchup. The kids can do all the steps for the crust; they get a kick out of it.
Add salt and pepper to the ground beef, and stir in the mayonnaise until all is well-moistened. Spread the beef mixture evenly over the prepared crust.
Bake for 20 minutes. Then put the cheese evenly on top. Continue baking for another 15-20 minutes, until cheese melts and the crust is done to your liking.
Let cool slightly, about 5 minutes. Cut the pie into squares to serve. Top each serving with the bacon, dill pickle slices, lettuce, tomato, or any other toppings you like on your hamburgers.
ANOTHER OPTION: If you like the taste of a Big Mac, use Thousand Island dressing instead of the mayonnaise.
