This recipe has defiantly made it into our rotation! We had it last night for dinner and loved it!

Cheeseburger Pie

1 pre-made pie/pastry crust
1 lb. lean ground beef (or elk)
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 c all-purpose flour
1/3 c dill pickle juice
1/3 c milk
1/2 c chopped dill pickles
2 c shredded cheese, divided

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F

Crumble ground beef into a large skillet and brown over medium heat. Add onions and garlic, saute. Drain grease from mixture (with elk burger, I never have to drain!!!)

Sprinkle beef mixture with 1/4 c flour, Stir in pickle juice, milk, chopped pickles, and 1 c shredded cheese. Spoon into pie/pastry shell.

Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Sprinkle top with remaining cheese and bake an extra 5 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and the top is nice and bubbly.

Note: You can also add diced tomatoes and shredded lettuce to the top after it's done, just like a real hamburger! Also make sure you add the pickles and the pickle juice, that is what makes this dish!!!!!!
