Best-Ever Cheeseburger Pie

This recipe is a favorite of mine from my mom's collection of yummy recipes. It is delicious, and I would also say a safe dish to serve with guests because it has some pretty basic ingredients. The great thing about this recipe is it already has your basic food groups before you even add sides: meat, veggie, dairy, starch. I usually serve it with salad, and sometimes I'll do sweet potato fries. So good!!

Here are the ingredients:

Start by chopping the onion. I'm not crazy about onions, so I usually do about half of a small one. Use your discretion here. There is no wrong amount!

Saute the meat and onion, add salt & pepper.

Use your butter or cooking spray to coat a 10" pie dish or 8" square dish. After the meat is thoroughly cooked, put into greased dish.

Top with the tomato, and then sprinkle with basil and cheese.

Mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl.

In a medium bowl, beat eggs with oil and milk.

Add the flour mixture and mix until it's not lumpy.

Pour the batter over the meat in the pie dish.

Now you are ready to bake it!

Bake at 400 for about 30 minutes, or until lightly brown on top. And voila! You now have a yummy dish that serves 4-6.

Hope you enjoy this recipe! Michael likes to add Lawry's seasoned salt to his helping. I'm sure it would be good with some other seasoning, too - chili powder maybe? Have fun experimenting!
