Bacon Cheeseburger Potato Pie

1 1/2 lbs. Lean ground beef
1/2 cup plain breadcrumbs
1/4-1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tsp. prepared mustard
1/2 tsp. salt
3 slices bacon
1 1/4 cups water
3 Tbsp. butter
1/4 tsp. garlic powder(can use extra if desired)
3/4 cup milk
2 cups instant mashed potatoes
1 cup shredded cheese, divided in half
1 medium tomato, chopped
2 green onions, sliced

Heat oven to 375*F. Combine ground beef, breadcrumbs, onion, ketchup, mustard and salt; mix well. Press hamburger mixture in bottom and up sides of an ungreased pie pan. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. While meat mixture is baking, cook bacon until crisp. Drain on paper towels, cool and crumble. Discard bacon drippings. In medium saucepan, combine water, butter and garlic powder. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add milk. With a fork, stir in potato flakes. Then stir in 1/2 cup of shredded cheese. Remove partly baked “crust” from oven, pour off any fat. Spoon potato mixture into crust evenly. Return to oven for another 10-15 minutes or until meat is thoroughly cooked and potatoes are heated through. Remove pie from oven. Top with tomato, remaining cheese and crumbled bacon. Return to oven and bake 5 minutes longer. Remove from oven and top with green onions. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
