Hamburger Pie

This is like a hamburger "quiche"  Good for brunch or dinner.  Most often I use cheddar cheese, but have used jalapeno, or pepper jack cheese, even American cheese.  I make this about once a month. A foodie friend on a message board shared the recipe with me several years ago.

Hamburger, or Bacon Cheeseburger Pie!
Hamburger Pie
1/2 cup Bisquick
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1/2 cup chopped onions,
1 lb. hamburger
1 large tomato
1 cup shredded cheese of choice
Salt and Pepper to taste
Optional: 1/2 cup cooked chopped bacon

Brown hamburger and chopped onion with whatever seasonings you like. Drain.
In a bowl, beat together Bisquick, milk and eggs. Stir in cheese.

Spread hamburger into a greased 9 inch pie plate.  Pour Bisquick mixture over the meat.  Bake in 400 degree oven for 25 - 30 minutes or until golden brown on top. Take out of the oven and top with sliced tomatoes, then sprinkle more shredded cheese on top.  Put back in oven until cheese melts. Cool slightly. Serve with Secret Sauce: mayo, ketchup, bit of brown mustard, onion powder and S&P all mixed together.

Cooked chopped bacon can be added, with the ground beef:  it's like a cheese/bacon burger pie! Or crumble cooked chopped bacon on top with the tomatoes and cheese near the end. Serves 4 - 6.

Estimated cost: $5.00 or less.
