I'm always on the hunt for easy weeknight meals... things that I can put together pretty quickly after school with items that I typically have on hand. When I came across this recipe for Cheeseburger Pie I knew that the kids would love it and I had everything in the pantry and refrigerator and so I went for it. Everyone at my house loved it so I thought I'd share!
What you'll need...
- 1 lb ground beef (I use 93/7)
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup shredded cheddar
- 1/2 cup bisquick
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 2 eggs
- a few pinches of salt
Step 1 - Brown the meat with the onion. When it's cooked and drained, mix in a few pinches of salt.
Step 2 - While the meat is cooking, mix together 2 eggs, 1 cup milk and the 1/2 cup Bisquick.
And spray a pie plate with cooking spray.
Step 3 - Pour the meat into the bottom of a pie plate and top with cheese.
Step 4 - Pour the Bisquick mixture over the meat and cheese.
Step 5 - Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes. I did 30 minutes and it was a little too brown on top, but still super tasty.
There you have it! Crazy easy and my kids gobbled this up. I served it with carrots, banana slices and yogurt and put a leftover slice in each of the boys lunch boxes for the next day.
So this definitely isn't gourmet ;) or super pretty to look at, but here's my plate after I took the picture...
And this was after I fed the kids their multiple helpings :)
So, if you're looking for a crazy easy dinner (or lunch!) idea, try this one out. I think it would be great with Italian sausage for breakfast as well.
Happy Thursday, friends!
