Default Cheeseburger Pie

Bitterly cold days call for warm comfort food beats going outside in the frigid temps.

Stupid easy to make and makes the joint smell good plus you have a hearty dinner at the end of it all. Serve with a nice salad.

1 - Deep dish glass pie plate
1 - Pillsbury crescent roll tube
1 - 15 oz can tomato sauce
2 lbs ground meat (I used 1 lb 90% lean ground beef and 1 lb ground bison)
8 slices American cheese
onion powder, to taste
black pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Spray pie plate lightly with non-stick spray. Press seams together (or use the kind that is just a sheet with no perforations) of crescent roll dough to form a pie crust into pie plate. Set aside.

Brown ground meat (about 8-10 minutes per pound); can do on stove top in pan or even microwaved, doesn't matter. Drain fat and crumble into pieces.

In a bowl, mix tomato sauce with ground meat. Add onion powder (I don't measure this, but 1ish tbsp is about the amount) and black pepper (I don't measure this either, but 1 tsp is about the amount). Mix thoroughly.

Fill pie shell with meat filling; cover with slices of cheese (you'll need to piece together cheese slices to cover entirely).

Bake at 375 about 20-30 min or until crust is nice and brown (check the bottom for brown-ness; this is why a glass pie plate is preferable). Cool and cut into slices.

*This recipe is adaptable in that you can edit the spices/cheeses/meat to have whatever 'spin' you want...think taco seasoning and Monterey Jack/Cheddar for a Mexican version, etc.
