Cheeseburger Pie with Mashed Potato Crust
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the seasoned mashed potatoes with minced onion and with them sculpt a shell in a buttered 9" pie pan. Bake in preheated 350 oven for 15 minutes.
Leave oven on at 350.
Cut 6 slices of cheese into pieces.
In large skillet, brown meat; pour off fat. Add tomato sauce, green pepper, onion, garlic and bouillon; cook and stir until bouillon dissolves. Remove from heat; stir in eggs and cheese pieces.
Turn into prepared shell.
Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until hot. Arrange remaining 2 slices of cheese on top. Bake 3 to 5 minutes longer or until cheese begins to melt. Garnish as desired.
(If using regular 9" pastry shell instead of mashed potatoes, prick it and bake it 8 minutes at 425 before filling)
