Easy but only so-so
Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie
Betty Crocker Cookbook New Edition Copyright 2005
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 large onion chopped (1 cup)
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 oz.) I used Cabot 50% Light Cheddar
½ cup original Bisquick mix
1 cup milk I used Super Skim
2 large eggs
1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray 9-inch glass pie plate with cooking spray.
2. In 10-inch skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is brown; drain. Stir in salt (I added pepper too.) Spread in pie plate. Sprinkle with cheese.
3. In small bowl, stir remaining ingredients with fork or wire whisk until blended. Pour into pie plate.
4. Bake about 25 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
Makes 6 servings.
I know I've made 'impossible pies' in the past but it had been a very long time. I had some Bisquick in the cupboard so I decided to make one again. It was a bit bland but not bad. Not something I would rush to make again but not something I regret making or eating either.
The Betty Crocker Cookbook is a classic. I like the way they give optional measurements for things like onions, cheese, etc. I hate when a recipe calls for a small, medium or large onion - just tell me how much onion! I usually use sweet onions which are much bigger than yellow onions so it gets confusing for me.
I did my grocery shopping last night. Can someone tell me, when did celery get so expensive? I paid well over $2 for it last night, and it wasn't organic. Ouch!
Hey, don't forget this month's cookbook giveaway (US addresses only again, sorry). It's a good one.
Blast From the Past: Grilled Chicken Marinade from January 2006. I made this again this week and it's a really good marinade.
Question of the Day: Have you ever made an 'impossible' (Bisquick) pie?
