Beef and Tomato Pie

"I bake this hot and hearty ground beef pie when my grandchildren come to visit," comments June Mullins of Livonia, Missouri. "They like its family-pleasing flavor," she informs. And you'll like that it costs just 57 cents a serving.

    Made this for dinner this evening substituting Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust for the biscuit mix crust . It was delicious! My husband and I both loved it!

    I made this last night with taco seasoning. Even with that I found the taste to be fairly bland. Was okay for a meal or two, but I won't be making it again. I like my biscuits baked soft and not crunchy. If you do too, watch the casserole and don't bake the entire time.

    This was good with white cheddar cheese, but I had to put 6 cups of fresh tomatoes on it to get the taste balance I wanted. I also had to add about 1/4 cup of flour to the biscuit mix after adding all the milk. 1/2 cup of milk might be better. This pie also needed a deep-dish pie pan, not a "9-in. pie plate".

    This was a tasty recipe - the family loved. I actually used a store bought pie crust and it still turned out excellent.

    This was just ok, won't be making again, the chunks of tomato with the hamburger and cheese sounded like a great flavor combo, but it wasn't! The meat turned out kinda dry. Good idea- but bad out come:(

    This was very delicious! My husband and I loved how crisp and flaky the crust was. It had a surprisingly large amount of flavor, as well. We added just a little bit of sour cream on top just before we ate it and it was rather delicious. :)

    I have made this pie for years, always in the summer when I have fresh tomato's. I also use taco seasoning packet in my ground beef, like making taco's. Sometimes, I had a can of refried beans, and a half cup of salsa. I always add some extra tomato's and extra cheddar. This is really good. I have made this for over 10 years now. A quick summer recipe... Very filling!!! Enjoy.
