Â Brrr… it was a chilly few weeks.. and even snow! Well, it is winter, so I don’t know why I am surprised.. but it was quite warm for awhile. A few things, just saw “Old Jews Telling Jokes” in Manhattan.. worth seeing! Nice to forget about everything and just laugh. Very therapeutic.
OK-back to cooking-also very therapeutic.

Crustless Meat and Onion Pie
The fancier version of meat loaf goes over the top with an onion-ring kind of topping that will have your family begging for more.
2 pounds ground beef
1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper, divided
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt of kosher salt, divided
3 large eggs, divided
1/2 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1 Vidalia or other sweet onion, peeled, halved, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 tablespoons water
1/3 cup all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon onion soup mix
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray the sides and bottom of a 9 1/2 inch spring form pan with nonstick cooking spray. Wrap the outside of the pan in foil to catch drips. Set aside.
Place the ground beef into a large bowl. Sprinkle in the panko, chili powder, thyme, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Add 1 egg. Knead to thoroughly combine and distribute the spices. Pat the meat into the pan, use a small offset spatula to even the top. In a small bowl, mix the ketchup, honey, Worcestershire sauce, and hot pepper sauce. Stir well. Pour over the meat and spread with a spatula. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk the remaining 2 eggs. Add the onions, oil, water, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, flour, baking powder, remaining 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and onion soup mix. Combine well. Pour on top of the glazed meat.
Bake uncovered for 1 hour. Release sides of pan. Transfer the pie to a platter.
