Cheeseburger in a pie?

Yes I know it sounds gross.
And very American.
But yet we have made it three times since pinning it.
It is actually very tasty and very easy to make.
A real crowd pleaser and comforting to boot.

 It may not look hugely appealing but it is very tasty!
Here is the recipe from Anne Coleman:

  • 1 can crescent rolls
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion, OR 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/3 cup chopped dill pickle slices
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons dill pickle juice
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 cups shredded American cheese, divided
  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Unroll crescent rolls and press into the bottom and up the sides of an 8 inch pie pan.
  3. Cook ground beef in a skillet until browned. Drain well.
  4. Stir in onion, chopped pickle, ketchup and mustard.
  5. Sprinkle with flour and add pickle juice and milk. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly.
  6. Remove from heat and add 1 cup of shredded cheese.
  7. Pour into the prepared crust and bake for 15 minutes, or until edges of crust are golden brown.
  8. Remove from oven and top with remaining cup of cheese. Let stand until cheese melts.
  9. Garnish with extra ketchup, mustard and pickle slices. 
Now if you're a Brit like me we don't have crescent rolls so I just get puffed pastry and it seems to work fine.

In other news I have been busy setting up a new blog which reviews restaurants - mainly in Yorkshire, but some in London or on travels - it's called Yummy Yorkshire and has already recieved lots of page views but you could become my first official follower. What an honour hey?!

Shaping up - feeling 'hex'ed!

I have been seeing lots of hexagons around blogland recently.
I am loving all of the new products - but am trying to use up lots of old stash and scraps before I invest in some new stash.
I used my Making Memories Slice to cut out the hexagons and then I decorated them with washi tape. The turquoise backing paper was created using a lace 12by12 as a mask and then spraying with several shades of glimmer mist - in my make-shift spray booth!
I run out of ideas for titles and journalling when using holiday pics and so decided to make this layout about our different perspectives. How he is a glass half empty person and I am a glass half full person.

 I initially created this layout for one of Shimelle's challenges, but didn't manage to photograph it or blog it on time. The challenge was all about trying a new technique and coming out of your comfort zone. I enjoyed getting messy and having a go at some new techniques!
