My husband battled with me over the name of this recipe. He calls it a “fancy burger with fries,” while I call it a “taco pie.” I can see his point. The potatoes on the bottom are like fries, while the meat and condiments are rolled into one filling on top. But the spices are what give it that taco-like flavor for me. And I like to add black olives and guacamole to mine—very taco-like. In the end I had to go for calling it a taco pie, because I couldn’t bring myself to call it fancy 🙂 Even if it is just a burger and fries in a different format, is it really fancy? Haha, I don’t think so. But isn’t it sweet that my husband thinks it’s fancy?
Paleo Taco Pie
1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup finely chopped sundried tomatoes
1 tsp Herbamare
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp dried oregano
2 tbsp fresh chopped basil
1/3 cup almond flour
2 tbsp arrowroot flour
3 whisked eggs
For the “crust”:
white potatoes or sweet potatoes, about 2
- Set the oven to 350F
- Cook the beef, onion, and garlic over low to medium heat, until the beef is browned. Drain the fat.
- Add the beef, onion, and garlic to a mixing bowl with the rest of the ingredients.
- Line a greased pie dish with potatoes, sliced about 1/4 inch thick, and seasoned with Herbamare. Overlap them slightly.
- Pour meat mixture over potatoes and spread evenly. Cover (I use and upside down stainless cookie sheet) and bake for about 30 minutes.
