A couple of days ago, on the way home, I made a detour. Due to the hectic day at work, I stopped (not for take out, as one might first think) at my favorite thrift store and took a look around for a little time out. As it turns out, it was a splendid day to stop, because I found this lovely cookbook.....
|Portland's Palate Cookbook, inside you, will find delicious recipes!|
When I got home, Terry said, I think I have seen this book before and he proceeded to read through it once again. A few minutes later, I heard things like "wow this looks good", "that sure sounds good" and finally, "You know, I think I have the bug now.".
Since the man is healthy and I knew he wasn't sick, I pretty much knew which bug he was referring to...the cooking bug. Tonight we had a delicious Hamburger Pie. Now don't let the generic name fool you, this is wonderful.
|Hamburger Pie, so very delicious!|
adapted from: Portland's Palate
1 pound lean ground beef
1/4 c dry seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 c tomato sauce (1/2 of a 8 oz. can)
1 T dried minced onion
1/4 t chili powder (we used Arizona Dreaming from Penzey's)
1 c sliced mushrooms
1 green pepper, seeded and diced (we used a roasted pepper - love that flavor)
2 c seasoned croutons* (we made our own, see below)
1 c shredded cheddar cheese
1 large tomato, sliced
Combine the ground beef through eggs, combine well. Press into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate.
In a separate bowl, beat the egg, and combine with remaining ingredients except for the sliced tomato. Mix well, layer on top of the meat mixture. Top with sliced tomatoes.

Bake 40 minutes or until done in your oven.
*Early in the day: Preheat oven to 350. Lightly butter 2 slices of bread, sprinkle with your favorite seasoning. Cut into small squares. Place in single layer on a baking sheet or pan. Place in the oven, and turn oven off. Let them dry while you are free to go about your day. When you need croutons to make dinner, just open the oven!
