Ready In:
1hr 25mins




  • Lightly grease a 9 or 10-inch pie plate.
  • In a large skillet brown the ground beef with onion, garlic, bell pepper, oregano and chili flakes (if using) drain fat, season with seasoned salt and black pepper, then mix in 1/4-1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese.
  • Stir in the tomato sauce and mushrooms; simmer for about 10-12 minutes.
  • Unroll one package of crescent rolls and separate the dough in triangles; arrange the triangles with pointed ends to the center, then press the edges together to form a pie shell.
  • In a bowl beat together 2 egg yolks and 3 egg whites until well combined.
  • Pour HALF of the egg mixture over the pie shell.
  • Spoon the meat mixture into the shell over the egg mixture.
  • Arrange the cheese slices over the beef mixture, then top with remaining beaten egg mixture.
  • Unroll the second crescent roll package, then place four sections of dough together to form a 12x16-inch rectangle; press edges and perforations together, then roll the dough into a 12-inch square.
  • In a small bowl whisk 1 egg yolk with 1 tablespoon cold water.
  • Brush the edges of bottom crust with yolk/water mixture, then place the dough on top of the beef filling; trim, seal and flute edges.
  • Cut small two slits in top of the crust, then brush the top dough with yolk/water mixture; sprinkle with about 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese if desired.
  • Loosley cover the edge with a foil strip to prevent browning.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.
  • Cover the center of the pie loosley with foil and continue to bake for about 20 minutes longer.
  • Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.

    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!
