BACON TOMATO CHEESEBURGER PIE



Savory ground beef with garlic, ketchup and mustard.

Add two eggs

This is the cheese I use from PriceSmart (Costco)

Butter on top of grated Mozzarella in microwave-safe bowl.

After adding the Bake Mix and egg - keep mixing and add a bit of coconut flour until you have a lovely soft dough ball.

Soft dough ball flattened into a circle with my hands using plastic wrap

Rolled out into a circle bigger than my pie dish.

Lift rolled dough and gently place in pie dish, flute edges and use a kitchen scissors to cut thicker parts at the top to place around the top where necessary to make the edge neater (I'm not that good at it, as you can see, but you get the idea).

Cheeseburger Pie filled and ready to bake!

Baked and ready to eat!



BACON TOMATO CHEESEBURGER PIE

Using the Miracle Dough for a substantial crust, this Cheeseburger Pie will be an unforgettable meal.  I served it simply with roasted potato skins.  My husband said it reminded him of a Cheeseburger and fries and he accompanied the meal with a diet coke.

2 tbsp olive oil (30 mL)
11/lbs lean ground beef (0.68 kg)
2 tbsp water (30 mL)
2 tbsp low-carb ketchup (30 mL)
1 tbsp mustard (15 mL)
1 tbsp crushed garlic (15 mL)
11/tsp salt (7 mL)
1/tsp black pepper (2 mL)
2 eggs, fork beaten
5 slices bacon, cooked crisp and cut up
1 medium Roma tomato
1 cup grated Cheddar cheese (250 mL)
Miracle Dough:  (See Grain-Free Bake Mix below)
2 cups grated Mozzarella cheese
2 tbsp butter (30 mL)
1 cup Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2 (250 mL)
1 egg, fork beaten
1/tsp Montreal® Chicken seasoning (1 mL)

Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). In large frying pan, in olive oil and over medium heat stir-fry ground beef until turning brown.  Add water, ketchup, mustard, garlic, salt and pepper.  Continue cooking until the beef is cooked.  Stir in two eggs.

Miracle Dough: In microwave oven in microwave-safe bowl, melt Mozzarella cheese and butter together.  This takes 2 minutes in my 1200 Watt microwave oven.   Be careful when removing the bowl with molten cheese. Place Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2 on top. In small bowl, beat egg with fork.  Add Montreal® Chicken seasoning; beat again with fork to combine.  Add to Mozzarella cheese. Stir with a fork or mixing spoon to form a dough ball.  Knead a little to form a soft ball. Use a little extra coconut flour, if necessary.  Place on clean surface or use parchment or wax paper and using a rolling pin, roll dough out to be a bit larger than a 9-inch (23 cm) glass pie dish.  Place dough in pie dish and make a thick edge with the pastry.  Flute this edge with your fingers to make it look attractive.

Add cooked ground beef and top with 4 slices cut-up crispy bacon, tomato slices and Cheddar cheese.  Sprinkle with remaining bacon bits.  Bake 25 minutes and in last 8 minutes, cover pie lightly with foil.

Variation: For a Grain-Free version:  Use a bake mix made up of 2 cups (500 mL) almond flour and 2/cup (150 mL) coconut flour.  (7.5 g carbs)
