Double the quick cheeseburger pie recipe. Skip the crust. Fry up as much bacon as will fit in your cast iron skillet and set aside. Saute the onions and garlic, then add the meat. Season with chili powder, cumin, pepper, and Lawry's Seasoned Salt. Swap cornstarch in for flour, using less than half as much. Add probably more than 2 c cheese, and add the now-crumbled bacon back in along with the pickles. Bake in a 9x13 casserole dish. Put the rest of the cheese on 15-20 minutes in, and then bake until melted and bubbly.

mmmmm, meat

I am taking advantage of the vegetarian's absence to make dinner with meat this weekend.

I made Ted Lindeman's fantastic sourdough cornbread with bacon grease instead of oil or butter, and used bacon grease in the pan. It's got just a hint of bacon flavor, especially at the crusty edges.

I also made Quick Cheeseburger Pie. The recipe calls for an 8-inch pie pan, but all three of our pie pans are 9.5 inches. It worked out all right though; I had 1.3 lbs of ground beef, rounded up on all my other measurements, and filled the dish completely. There wasn't any crust to fold over the edge of the pan, though. I could have probably gotten extra crust if I'd rolled out the dough, but it's designed to be smushed into the pan and is very soft.
