Sloppy Joe Pie (p1)

I'm not sure where this recipe originally came from but "techbunnyo" posted this recipe on the SB forum and its really WONDERFUL! The ingredients seems really odd to me but I went ahead and made it just as the recipe said and I was so surprised. I've made this a few times and have been very happy with the flavor and texture. It's even better and more "sloppy joe" flavored the next day. The simple custard is almost a bun-like topper and the entire dish is wonderful!


Meat mixture:
1 pound ground beef
1/3 cup onion, chopped (1 1/2 ounces)
2 stalks celery, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup tomato sauce
2 teaspoons Splenda
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 oz ff cheddar cheese, shredded


2 eggs
1/2 cup mayonnaise (used light, and slightly less)

1/4 cup ff half & half
4 ounces ff cheddar cheese, shredded

Brown the hamburger with the onion, celery and garlic; drain fat. Add the tomato sauce, Splenda, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, salt and pepper. Mix well and let simmer, uncovered, about 10 minutes or so just to blend the flavors. Mix in about half the cheese and put the meat mixture in the bottom of a greased glass pie plate. Spread remaining cheese over the top. Beat the eggs in a small bowl and whisk in the mayo and cream. Pour custard mixture evenly over the cheese. Bake at 350ยบ for 30-35 minutes until nicely browned. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.
Makes 6-8 servings
(6 servings - 4.5 net carbs each) (8 serving - 3.5 net carbs each) --less if using the 1/2 and 1/2, and light mayo
