    This recipe goes back many years and is still a family favorite ---shredded old cheddar can be replaced with the cheese slices if desired.

      Not a big surprise, a Kittencal recipe that is a BIG hit in our house. Everyone loved this, asked me immediately to repeat it soon. Another big bonus: my 4 1/2 year old is undergoing chemo, his appetite is quite hit or miss....he asked for this for dinner 3 nights in a row, also, I saw him scooping up crumbs of it and piling it on his fork, his Oncologist and I THANK YOU Kittencal!!

      This is absolutely wonderful! Tastes like a wonderfully fancy creation served in an expensive restaurant - not at all like a humble hamburger pie! And easy to make too, although I admit I skipped the last couple steps and just put it in the oven with no foil - but did put it on a cookie sheet. Thanks for sharing this keeper which we will be having often!
