What’s For Dinner Wednesday!

Welcome back to “What’s For Dinner Wednesday!” This week I have not felt like cooking. AT ALL. So when today came I was thinking- JUST DO TAKE OUT. But of course I am going to cook- it’s not going to be fancy, but it’s going to be fast and yummy… a nice hearty meal.

Ninja’s Hamburger Pie- Potato Crust, Just plain yummy.

Stuff Ya Need:

  • 1lb of Ground Beef
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves pressed garlic
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 2 cups mashed potatoes
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3/4 cup vegetable stock
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

Stuff To Do:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F/180C.
  2. Brown the ground beef in a skillet until no longer pink and drain off any fat.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a second skillet. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is soft , Usually about 8-10 minuets.
  4. Add the carrots and cook for about 5 minutes more. Add the frozen corn (no need to thaw it)… Cook for another 5 minutes.
  5. While the meat and vegetables are cooking, stir together the mashed potatoes and the egg until they are creamy.
  6. Grease a 9 inch/22 cm pie plate and spread the potato mixture into the plate, building up the sides to form a crust. Set this aside.
  7. Add the cooked ground beef to the cooked vegetables.
  8. In a small bowl, mix together the chicken broth and the cornstarch. Add this to the beef and vegetable mixture.
  9. Add the salt and pepper to taste. Stir and cook for a few minutes.
  10. Spoon the beef and vegetable mixture into the mashed potato crust,making sure to smooth it out evenly.
  11. Bake for 35 minutes, or until the crust is lightly browned on the edges and the filling is hot.

I usually serve with a Salad….. YUMMERS!
