Ingredients: For the crust: 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed 1/4 cup cold water 1/2 teaspoon salt For the filling: 1 lb ground beef 1 small onion, finely chopped 1 clove garlic, minced 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano 1/2 teaspoon dried basil 1/2 cup ketchup 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Instructions: Prepare the crust: In a food processor, combine the flour, cold butter, and salt. Pulse until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Add cold water, one tablespoon at a time, and pulse until the dough comes together. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and shape it into a disk. Wrap it in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Preheat the oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Make the filling: In a skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef until browned. Drain any excess fat. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic to the skillet. Cook until the onion is softened. Season the mixture with salt, black pepper, dried oregano, and dried basil. Stir in ketchup and Dijon mustard, mixing well. Let it simmer for a few minutes. Assemble the pie: Roll out the chilled dough on a floured surface to fit your pie dish. Place the rolled-out dough into the pie dish, pressing it against the bottom and sides.
Pour the beef mixture into the crust, spreading it evenly. Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese over the top of the beef mixture. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve: Allow the cheeseburger pie to cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
