Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 F, and grease 5 ramekins or an 8 inch casserole dish.
  • Brown ground beef in large fry pan, and slightly drain off some grease, not all (this keeps the meat moist and flavorful).
  • In separate mixing bowl combine all the dry, beef seasoning mix ingredients except for the water. Once dry seasonings are combined add water and stir.
  • Pour seasoning mix with water over ground beef in pan and stir. Heat pan to medium high and bring meat mixture to a boil. Turn heat immediately to low and cover. Simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Grind up raw cauliflower in processor until it looks like rice, or could use ricer or grater.
  • In a separate, large mixing bowl combine: cauliflower, and all the not” corn bread pie crust ingredients. Mix together thoroughly. Set aside.
  • Divide the ground beef mixture into five servings, and place a portion of ground beef at the bottom of each ramekin. Or, could spread all meat mixture at bottom of a casserole dish.*Shown in photo above.
  • Divide pie crust mixture in 5 servings and place a portion on top of beef mixture in ramekin. Or, place all crust mixture on beef mixture in casserole dish. Spread crust mixture, with the back of a spoon, around until beef is evenly covered with pie crust. * Shown in photo above.
  • Bake in oven for 23 to 25 minutes, or until pie crust edges are slightly browning, and center is slightly firm.
  • Remove from oven and cool a little. Add desired toppings and serve. Careful, as ramekin may still be hot.
