Thanks so much Perfect Pixie! I made this a couple years ago and my hubby fell in love, I couldn't find the recipe again until now. The only change I made was: I mixed the beef with 4 ounces of processed american cheese and topped the pie with 4 ounces of shredded cheddar (sharp). Also, instead of serving the ketchup and mustard on the side I mixed in right in before baking. I also browned my beef with minced garlic and onions. Served with a side salad, always a hit.

This pie is pretty good. I decided to make this recipe in order to use up an old-ish jar of pickles, and I loved that it used up the pickle juice too. It does have a very strong pickle flavor, which is great for us pickle fans. I followed the suggestion of serving with a bit of mustard and ketchup on the side. This made a pretty tasty dinner, thank you for the recipe!

I loved this recipe! I made a few changes though... My husband and I dont like pickles. So I put in onions instead, and then used beef broth instead of the pickle juice. But it ended up being great. The whole family loved it.
