One prepared pie crust
One pound ground beef
¼ cup ketchup
Four servings of instant mashed potatoes
Finely shredded cheese
Webber’s Chicago Steak seasoning (optional)
Half of an onion, diced
To make Harry Potter inspired Quidditch Pie, brown one pound of hamburger in a skillet with half a diced onion and a sprinkling of Webber’s Chicago Steak seasoning. Cook thoroughly and drain, add ketchup then set aside. Make instant potatoes according to package instructions. If desired, you can add one can of your favorite vegetable to the mix. Drain the water from the can and stir the vegetable into the finished mashed potatoes. Cover a deep dish pie pan with one prepared pie crust. Add drained hamburger to the crust. Top with mashed potatoes and smooth them out to cover the beef. Add a generous amount of shredded cheese to the top and place in the oven at 350 degrees until the crust is golden brown, about 15 minutes. Cut and serve hot.
One can refrigerated crescent rolls
One can pumpkin
¼ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon each, ginger and nutmeg
Harry Potter and his Hogwarts classmates loved the Pumpkin Pasties on the Hogwarts Express food trolley. This recipe, inspired by the Harry Potter films is a fun dessert for fans to enjoy. Simply, unroll the crescent rolls and cut each on into thirds and set aside. Add remaining ingredients to a bowl and mix together. Gently shape each crescent piece into a circular shape and place in the bottom of a mini-cupcake pan. Add filling with a small spoon until filled and bake in a 325 degree oven until the crusts are golden. Remove and cool.
In addition to your Harry Potter inspired meal and dessert, you might like to try a tasty beverage.
Butterbeer is a favorite among Hogwarts students. The easiest way to make this treat for your Potter fan is to add butterscotch ice cream syrup to a bottle of cream soda. Stylish Butterbeer printable labels will add a bit of style to the yummy drinks. Serve cold in the bottles or warm over a low heat on the stove or in a crock pot and serve over ice cream in a sturdy mug.
These Harry Potter inspired treats should get you in the mood for the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows release. They are especially good when served with a Harry Potter movie marathon.
