Beer Cheeseburger Pie with Dill Pickle Potato Chip Crust
This was the first recipe I ever cooked. Well, a variation of this, devoid of beer and with the inclusion of Bisquick. I was 9 and my mom asked me to pick a recipe I wanted to cook. I had no idea where to start. I didn’t know anything about cooking; I’d never even turned on a stove, or picked up a measuring cup. But I did know that I liked cheeseburgers and I liked pie, that’s pretty much all I needed to know when I read the title. We served our mash-up dinner with potato chips, which were used as scoops towards the end of the meal. A flavor and texture combo that was a solid win.
There is something about the food you first fell in loved with that will never leave you: cheeseburgers, pie, potato chips, pickles. Those will always be food that will comfort in a soul-satisfying way that the foods we fell in love with as adults just can’t.
My obsession with the new flavors of Kettle Brand Chips was renewed when I found out that have a dill pickle flavor. DILL PICKLE POTATO CHIPS! This is not a drill! They’re exactly what you want them to be and it just so happens that they pair excellently with both cheeseburgers and beer.
