Hunter’s Pie

There is nothing better than seeing people enjoy food that you just made. But sometimes it’s just too much work to throw together a crazy delicious meal. You had a hard day at work or the kids were just too much today! From this came the inspiration for this BOOMSHAKALAKA MEAL! I wanted to create something that was EXTREMELY simple yet so tasty and flavorful that you have to stop yourself from eating more! The Hunter’s Pie!

First take your  2 – 8 oz blocks of pepper jack cheese and grate it up into a bowl (if you bought bagged cheese this doesn’t apply)

Take a 9x9 or 13x9 baking dish and spray the inside of the dish with cooking spray (olive, canola, vegetable) it doesn’t matter 🙂

Next pop open 1 can of your crescent rolls, and spread it across the bottom and up the sides of the baking dish.

Then melt about 2 Tbs of butter in a bowl in the microwave and lightly baste the crescent roll dough in the baking dish. (Don’t go crazy! Just baste enough to make it glossy. We are going to use the melted butter again)

Then warm up your skillet (preferably cast iron) and brown up your meat and onions with some salt and pepper (to taste).

Once meat and onions are cooked, remove skillet from heat and add diced jalapenos to the meat and onions. (add as much or little as you like) I like to use about 3 to 4 heaping table spoons and when I say table spoon I mean the one you eat your cereal with…haha

Then take your meat, onion, and jalapeno mix and your shredded cheese and repeat as follows: Layer of meat – Layer of cheese – Layer of meat – Layer of cheese

Then take your remaining crescent roll dough, open it and top the pie, pinching the edges to seal in the meat. Lightly baste the top of the pie with the melted butter and put it in the oven for 25 – 30 min, or until top of pie is golden brown!
