Updated February 16, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1 box (14.1 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Pie Crusts (2 Count), softened as directed on box
  • 1 1/2 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
  • 2 large onions, chopped (1 cup)
  • 12 oz prepared cheese product (from 16-oz loaf), cubed (about 2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup Thousand Island dressing
  • 2 teaspoons yellow mustard
  • 16 round dill pickle chips or 8 oblong dill pickle slices
  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame seed
  • Lettuce leaves
  • 2 plum (Roma) tomatoes, sliced

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Make pie crusts as directed on box for Two-Crust Pie using 9-inch glass pie plate.
  • 2
    In 12-inch skillet, cook ground beef and onions over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain.
  • 3
    Stir in cheese, dressing and the mustard. Reduce heat to low; cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cheese is melted. Spoon beef mixture into crust-lined pie plate. Arrange pickle chips over beef mixture.
  • 4
    Top with second crust; seal edge and flute. Sprinkle with sesame seed. Cut slits in several places in top crust. Cover crust edge with 2- to 3-inch-wide strips of foil to prevent excessive browning; remove foil during last 15 minutes of baking.
  • 5
    Bake 30 to 40 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Top pie with lettuce and tomatoes. Serve with ketchup and mustard if desired.

  • Here's an easy way to cover the crust edge with foil: Cut a 12-inch square of foil, then cut out an 8-inch round from the center. Place the foil "frame" over the pie.
  • Serve a crisp green tossed salad with this hearty pie. Then, treat everyone to milk shakes for dessert.
