TIPS & TRICKS FOR SUCCESS


TIP #1: Press the ground beef mixture firmly into the pie pan, avoiding any holes or gaps. The goal is to ensure that the egg mixture does not seep through cracks.

TIP #2: Spray the pan with cooking oil or rub it with butter to prevent sticking when you remove the pie from the dish.

TIP #3: Drain excess fat and liquid from the ground beef when you are sauteeing, as this will help make the pie crust more firm.

    How much taco seasoning did you add? This is left out of the ingredients list. I love your recipes – my boyfriend is new to carnivore, so I have to keep it interesting for him. This is making him happy! Thank you.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both educative
    and engaging, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy I came across this in my hunt
    for something concerning this.
