I’m going to be real honest here. I hate cooking. It’s a weakness. And something I don’t attempt to get better at as often as I’d like to. The usual suspects are my excuses: full time job, lack of time, too tired, and shocker, I would rather go to the gym! Hence why Dinners on the Dot have always been done by my friend Jane. She’s a wonderful cook but sadly has recently moved to Idaho. I know, tear! I’m hoping she will continue to contribute her genius beef, or cookie, recipes to this blog (hint, hint), but for now, I will stumble my way through the process and let you all know if I find anything that is worth mentioning or has been approved by Mr. Meet Your Beef. This one got rave reviews! Phew.
I’m not sure if you remember, but Jane posted a recipe for a delicious Hamburger Pie awhile back. If you are a seasoned veteran in the kitchen, stop right here and click that link. Make that pie instead. However, if you are more like me and on the Junior Varsity squad as it relates to cooking, follow along below. Biggest difference between the two recipes is this one below does not entail making a crust. Score!
With a craving for hamburger pie and a lackluster enthusiasm for spending my entire evening in the kitchen, I turned to the one and only, Pinterest. Who would have thought an old, simple Betty Crocker Recipe would be this great? Apparently, Betty knew what she was doing 😉
Here’s how simple it is…
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 9″ glass pie plate with cooking spray. In skillet, cook ground beef and chopped onion over medium heat until beef is browned. Drain. Stir in salt.
Spread the beef and onions evenly into the pie plate and sprinkle with a little cheese. Or a lot 🙂
