THIS WAS MY GO-TO dish for many years and I don’t know why I’ve gotten away from it. I don’t remember who gave it to me, but I vaguely recall being at some party and tasting it and insisting the hostess share her recipe with me. (If you remember giving it to me, please let me know and I’ll happily give you all the credit!)
You can tell this card has spent a lot of time on my countertop. You can probably also infer that I am not the tidiest cook, and you would not be wrong.
Here’s the recipe, with the baking instructions that were on the back of the card.
DRIED BEEF HOT APPETIZER PIE
1 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
2 Tablespoons milk
1/2 cup sour cream
2 1/2 ounces dried beef, shredded (or chopped fine)
2 Tablespoons green bell pepper, finely chopped
2 Tablespoons scallions, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In medium bowl, with a hand mixer, blend cream cheese, milk and sour cream. Add everything else except for walnuts and stir in by hand until well blended.
Spray an 8″ pie plate with cooking spray. Place mixture in pie plate and spread evenly. Top with chopped walnuts.
Place in preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes, till bubbly.
Serve with sliced baguettes or crackers.
