Halloween Cheeseburger Pie

Have some fun this Halloween.


·         1 lb. ground beef
·         1 onion (chopped)
·         2 garlic cloves (pressed)
·         ½ tsp. pepper
·         ¼ cup ketchup
·         1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
·         15 oz. refrigerated pie crusts
·         1 tbsp. prepared mustard
·         3 cups shredded Monterey jack cheese (divided)
·         2 tbsps. water
·         1 large egg
·         food coloring (red)
·         food coloring (yellow liquid)


1.       Cook first 5 ingredients in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until beef crumbles and is no longer pink; drain. Stir in ketchup and Worcestershire sauce; cool.

2.       Unfold 1 piecrust, and place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Spread mustard evenly over crust. Stir together meat mixture and 2 cups cheese; spoon onto center of crust, leaving a 2-inch border.

3.       Unfold remaining piecrust, and cut out a jack-o'-lantern face, reserving pastry cut-outs to use as a stem. Place crust over meat mixture; crimp edges of crust, and fold under. Place stem on top of jack-o'-lantern face.

4.       Whisk together 2 tablespoons water, egg, and 1 drop each of red and yellow food coloring; brush over crust.

5.       Bake at 425*F (220*C) for 20 minutes; remove from oven, and brush again with egg mixture. Fill eyes, nose, and mouth with remaining 1 cup cheese. Bake 5 to 10 more minutes or until golden brown.

Happy Cooking
