1 -1/2 lb hamburger or ground turkey
1/3 cup medium salsa
1 egg
1/3 cup dried bread crumbs
1 chopped onion,
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp salt
Mix all this together and pat into pie tin to make a “crust.” Bake at 350° for 15 minutes. Drain or pat off fat with a paper towel.
Mix together the following ingredients and Mound this mixture in the “crust”.:
Mashed potatoes for 6
2 T butter
1 tsp celery seed
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp of any of the herbs used above
2 T sour cream if desired
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
Layer these on top and bake another 15-20 minutes: fresh tomato slices onion slices cheddar, jack, or American cheese slices parmesan cheese. Once baked you can keep this in the fridge, cut slices of it and "nuke" to heat up for the kids.

(makes 4 large sandwiches)
When Mom made these my sisters and I loved them! Mom would make a bunch and freeze them. We'd pop them in the oven for a hot lunch treat in the winter. Add a bowl of soup and you have a terrific dinner.

2 Cans (6-1/4 oz each) water pack tuna, drained and flaked
2 chopped stalks celery
1 chopped onion
1/2 C cubed American or cheddar cheese
1/2 C cubed pepper jack cheese
1 T Beau Monde seasoning or 1 tsp celery seed
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp paprika
2 T sweet pickle relish (optional)
1-1/2 C Miracle Whip or mayonnaise

Mix together. Cut a French Baguette into 4 equal pieces. Slice each piece almost in half horizontally. Tear 4-16" square pieces of aluminum foil and place bread in center of each. Spoon tuna mix into bread and gather foil around each sandwich leaving the top open 1". Put "bundles" in a baking pan and bake in a preheated 350° oven for 15 minutes or until cheese melts.
