1 unbaked pie crust
8 slices American processed cheese
1 lb hamburger meat
1/2 cup tomato sauce or thick tomato juice
1/2 small green bell pepper, chopped
1/3 cup chopped onion
1 tsp beef bouillon
3 beaten eggs
2 tbsp all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Bake the pastry shell 6 minutes; remove from the oven and lower the oven temp to 350 degrees.

Cut 6 slices of the cheese into smaller pieces.

In a large skillet brown the meat and pour off the fat.  Add the tomato sauce, bell pepper, onion, and bouillon to the skillet.  Cook, stirring, until the bouillon is completely dissolved.  Remove from the heat and stir in the eggs, flour, and cheese pieces.  Stir to combine well and pour into the crust.  Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until hot.  Arrange the remaining cheese on the top of the pie and return to the oven for 3 minutes or until the cheese melts.

Serve with potato chips and I add a dill pickle most of the time.

I love, love, love cheeseburger pie. Only thing I do differently now is make it was either a gluten-free crust or a GF biscuit crust (sort of like what we had in the school cafeteria of my youth). Mmmmm...xoLinda
