Cheeseburger Pie for Dinner!

Daily Tidbit:  So I didn't have a plan for lunch, so I scanned the pantry and got inspired to try a canned Artichoke Hearts & White Bean dip.  I added 4 of my favorite things in the world:  cilantro - lemon juice - EVOO - garlic and voila!  A yummy dip was made.  I threw it on a Wrap for lunch.  The result was a super yummy and creamy (Vegan!) sandwich!

Cheeseburger Pie for Dinner!

Story/ Recipe:  So I bought a box of Bisquick to make pancakes for the kids and we saw this recipe on the box called "Cheeseburger Pie" that we decided to try, tweaking it a bit by adding lots of Veggies!

Brown 1 pound of Ground Beef, drain fat (I use paper towels to soak up extra fat as well),
add 1/2 tsp of salt, 1/2 White Onion, 1 cup of Corn, 1 cup of Peas, 1 cup of grated carrots, cooking everything until hot.  Transfer to an oven safe, greased pie plate or casserole dish.  Top with 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese.  In a separate bowl mix 1/2 cup of Bisquick, 2 eggs and 1 cup of Milk.  Once mixed, pour onto beef, veggies & cheese and put into oven at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes. 

Here is the official Bisquick recipe:

You can see my pic and their pic are a bit different!  We used less cheese and more veggies, but I enjoy taking a yummy recipe like this and making it just a touch more healthy for me and my family; that way we get the best of both worlds!

No Ice Cream Banana Split!

Dessert:   No Ice Cream Banana Split!
1 Banana, sliced
