Zucchini Hamburger Pie

We had this for dinner tonight. Since I have zucchini from the garden and tomatoes from the garden, it's only right to use them. This has a really nice flavor.

Zucchini Hamburger Pie

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 lb. ground beef
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic salt
  • 1/2 cup diced green pepper
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried parsley flakes
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg; lightly beaten
  • Single pastry crust
  • 4 cups sliced zucchini; divided
  • 2 medium tomatoes; thinly sliced
Directions:
  1. Brown meat with onions, salt and garlic salt; drain. Stir in green pepper, oregano, parsley, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and egg until well mixed; set aside.
  2. Spread 2 cups zucchini in pie pan or casserole dish; cover with meat mixture. Top with tomato slices and rest of zucchini. Cover with pie crust, cutting steam vents.
  3. Put into preheated 350° oven and bake 1 hour or until crust is lightly browned.

The original recipe called for a double pastry crust, but there seems to be too much liquid in the filling so that the bottom crust turns out soggy. It is better with just the top crust.

This sounds interesting. Do you think it would work with yellow squash instead of the zucchini?

Yellow squash would probably be fine. I just like zucchini better, and that's what I have.

I was going to take pictures, but it wasn't really anything special to look at. I suppose I could go take a picture of the leftovers...
