This recipe is adapted from a Pillsbury cookbook I have called Budget Ground Beef Recipes. It originally used frozen meat balls but Pat and I both agreed that it sounded icky, so I decided to modify it! Check out the recipe below!
|1||pie crust (I used a Jiffy box mix because I was in a hurry!)|
|1/2 lb.|| ground beef (I added a small diced onion to this while cooking)|
|1||cup corn frozen, fresh, or canned|
|3/4||cup shredded Cheddar cheese (3 oz)|
|Heat oven to 375°F. Cook ground beef and diced onion until no longer pink and season with salt and pepper. Roll out pie crust onto a round pizza pan or cookie sheet to form a large circle. Spread ground beef mixture in the center of the crust leaving a couple of inches around the edge.|
|In small bowl, mix corn and 1/2 cup of the salsa. Spoon the corn mixture over the ground beef and sprinkle with 1/2 cup of the cheese. Fold edge of crust over filling, leaving an opening in the middle.|
|Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until crust is deep golden brown. Sprinkle with the rest of the cheese. Bake 3 to 5 minutes longer.|
|We used lettuce, sour cream, and the remaining salsa as topping!|
It came out really good! It maybe could have used a little more spice in the ground beef mixture? But got Daddy's seal of approval!!
Since the crust mixture made 2 crusts we wrapped up the rest and used it the next morning to make homemade poptarts! My friend and I decided this would be a fun thing to make since our kids really like them! Check out her post here.
