Ok, so not the most appetizing photo, but it was really tasty...I swear. I have a sick boy at home today and between him and the other two I have been running around as busy as a one-arm coat hanger.

CHEESEBURGER PIE adapted from Southern Food 
1 9 inch pre-made pie crust
1 pound lean ground beef
3/4 cup chopped onion
1 garlic clove, minced
4 eggs, slightly beaten
1 can (10 3/4oz) cheddar cheese soup
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 cup pizza or spaghetti sauce
1 tablespoon steak seasoning
1 tablespoon steak seasoning sauce (I used A1)

I used a pre-made pie crust, fit it loosely into pie plate; fold edge to make a high standing crust rim. Flute around the edge and prick inside with a fork in several places. Bake pie crust for 8 to 10 minutes at 450°, or until lightly browned.

Meanwhile, prepare filling. In a large skillet over medium heat, break up beef and brown with the onion; drain off excess fat. In a mixing bowl combine eggs, soup, salt, oregano, steak seasoning, steak sauce, pizza sauce and pepper. Stir in meat mixture. Spoon into prepared pie pastry. Reduce oven temperature to 325° and bake pie 50 to 55 minutes, or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 to 1 cup of shredded cheese. Cut into wedges and serve hot.
Makes 6 servings.

I made some modifications to the original recipe because I like more seasoning then some recipes call for. This is a keeper for me and it is always good to have something different to do with ground beef.
