“This pie is *so* good, if you love onions you will LOVE this, this recipe makes two pies! I most always add in dried chili flakes and a chopped jalapeno pepper in with the ground beef mixture to kick the heat up, one or two more onions won't hurt either, you can use frozen store-bought crusts if desired and the ground beef mixture may be made a day in advance and refrigerated!”

  1. Fit each pastry into the pie plates and flute edges as desired; cover and refrigerate until ready to fill.
  2. In a large skillet cook the ground beef with onion, bell pepper, thyme and garlic until the beef is well browned; drain fat.
  3. Mix in Dijon mustard, Parmesan cheese and chili sauce; simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Season with seasoned salt and black pepper to taste; cool to almost room temperature.
  5. Divide and spread the ground beef mixture over the pie shells.
  6. Top ground beef with about 1 cup grated cheddar cheese; set aside while cooking the onions.
  7. In the same skillet saute the onions in butter with 2 teaspoons sugar for about 20-22 minutes or until soft and just beginning to brown.
