Cheeseburger pie


For the crust

  • Preheat the oven to 180οC (350ο F) set to fan.
  • Grease a 28 cm round cake pan with the butter, dust with the flour, and set it aside until needed. 
  • Dust your working surface with a little flour and use a rolling pin to roll out the kourou dough sheet into a 30 cm circle.
  • Carefully transfer the sheet to the cake pan, covering its bottom and sides.
  • Spread a piece of parchment paper on the bottom and fill it with legumes as pie weights, so that the crust does not rise while baking.
  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
  • Remove the pie weights along with the parchment paper and bake for 10 more minutes.
  • Take the cake pan out of the oven and let it cool. 

For the filling

  • Place a pot over medium heat and add the olive oil. 
  • Sauté the ground beef for 4-5 minutes, until golden brown, by stirring with a serving spoon.
  • Finely chop the onion, the pepper, the garlic, and sauté them for about 3-4 minutes.
  • Add the tomato paste and sauté for 1 more minute.
  • Deglaze the pot with the red wine, add the canned tomatoes, the oregano, the parsley, salt, pepper, and mix. 
  • Cook for 4-5 minutes until the juices of the tomato reduce and then remove the pot from the heat. 
  • Transfer the filling into a bowl and let it cool.
  • Add the dry breadcrumbs and mix with the serving spoon.

For the bechamel sauce

  • Place a saucepan over medium heat and melt the butter.
  • As soon as the butter melts, add the flour and whisk well until there is a uniform paste. 
  • Cook for 1 minute and add the milk in 3 batches by whisking constantly.
  • Let the milk come to a boil and remove the pot from the heat. 
  • Add the mustard, salt, pepper, the 150 g cheddar, and whisk until the cheese melts.
  • Set the saucepan aside until the bechamel sauce is needed.

To assemble

  • Preheat the oven to 200οC (390ο F) set to fan.
  • Spread the ground beef mixture on top of the crust and make sure that it covers the whole surface.
  • Pour the bechamel sauce over the ground beef.
  • Sprinkle with the 50 g cheddar and bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes, until the bechamel sauce is golden.
  • Remove the pie from the oven and let it slightly cool. 
  • Cut into pieces, sprinkle with thyme, and serve -optionally- with BBQ sauce.
