Posts Tagged ‘ hamburger ’

One of our family’s favorite dinners is my mom’s good old Hamburger Pie — topped with mashed potatoes and cheese.  Since we are watching our carbs, I needed to create a low-carb version in order to satisfy the craving!   I used the same ingredients for the “pie” portion, but did a faux-potato topping.  Surprisingly, it was very good and satisfying!  Yay!

 

 

 

 
 

 

  • 1 lb hamburger
  • 1/4 c chopped onion
  • 1 10 oz can fine-chopped tomatoes
  • 1 8 oz can French cut green beans
  • 1 tsp crushed garlic (or garlic powder)
  • salt & pepper to taste

Brown the hamburger; add the onion and rest of ingredients, mix well.  Simmer on low heat for 20-30 minutes.  Pour meat mixture into pie plate or casserole dish.

Preheat oven to 350.

Topping:

  • 1/2 c mayonnaise
  • 1/4 c sour cream
  • 1/4 c cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese (I used 4 cheese blend)
  • 5-7 shakes of Tabasco
  • pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together well.  Pour evenly over the meat mixture. 

Bake for 30-35 minutes until top is lightly golden-brown.

Dig in and mangia bene!

P.S.  Dave loved this, so next time I am doubling the recipe!
