Hamburger Pie

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.

    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

How to Make Hamburger Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. 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.
  3. Spread the Crescent roll dough like a crust over the bottom of an 8x12-inch baking dish.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. ANOTHER OPTION: If you like the taste of a Big Mac, use Thousand Island dressing instead of the mayonnaise.
