Food You Can Eat: Meatsie Pie

Midcentury cooking strikes again

I don't think serving this as horse duvers is a great idea.

First things first:  This is a terrible, terrible, terrible name for what is essentially a crustless pizza.

A caveat before we get started:  Canned milk is the same as Evaporated Milk.  If you used Condensed Milk, you will be very, very sorry.

Here’s what you’ll need:

1 Lb. Ground Beef

⅔ Cup Canned Milk

½ Cup Cracker Crumbs

Salt and Pepper, to taste

1 Sm. Can Pizza Sauce

8 Oz. Mozzarella Cheese, shredded

Mix together ground beef, canned milk, cracker crumbs and salt and pepper.  Spread into an 8 x 8 pan. 

That’s a hunk of meat right there.

Pour pizza sauce evenly over the top and sprinkle with cheese.

That’s a 13oz can of sauce.
I was lazy and got a bag of shredded cheese. Mozzarella is a bitch to shred.

Bake in a 350-degree oven for 25 minutes.

25 minutes was just right.

Can be served either as a main course, or cut into bite-sized cubes for hors d’oeuvres.

This is actually pretty good.  I don’t really have a reason to make it again, other than to feed it to my neighbors, so this is probably a one-and-done for me.

  1. Diners in New York used to, and probably still do, offer “Italian” cheeseburgers, which is exactly this, a hamburger patty topped with sauce and mozzarella. I make these every so often, much to Better Half’s disdain. He gets cheddar-topped cheeseburgers made on the stovetop, while I put my “Italian” cheeseburgers in the broiler. It never dawned on me to forgo the bread and make a whole casserole dish’s worth.
