Cheeseburger Pie

I've been asked about Cheeseburger Pie. This recipe came to me years ago from my mother-in-law. When it didn't "taste like mom's" I gave up trying. I pulled the recipe out for this week hoping to add something to my list of menus and to give my hubby a smile. Maybe enough time has passed for him to enjoy it. = ) I'll be leaving out the green peppers, I like them but they don't like me. And I'll add a couple of cloves of garlic.

Cheeseburger Pie

1 lb. ground beef
1/2 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs
4 oz. can tomato sauce
Cheese topping (see below)
9" pie crust

Preheat oven to 425. Brown beef, onion, green pepper. Mix in rest of ingredients except cheese topping. Spread in pie crust. Spread cheese topping over meat mixture. Bake 30 min.

Cheese Topping
8 oz. (2 cups) grated cheddar cheese
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 tsp. Worcestshire Sauce

Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Reserve to pour over meat mixture.

okay, so i'm a little late on the commenting - BUT I have to tell you that this is my hubby's favorite favorite favorite food! His mom used to make it for him all the time, and I'm continuing the tradition by making it for him too. We pour cheese soup on the top, but that's the only difference. How neat!!
