Cheeseburger Pie

This cheeseburger pie tastes so much like its namesake—right down to the pickles in it! We home-school our children so I like easy recipes like this that get them involved in cooking. —Rhonda Cannady, Bartlesville, Oklahoma

    I have made this dish several times usually adding an additional ingredient or two to change it up. It's easy and delicious!

    The only thing I would change about this recipe is to save 1 cup of the cheese and sprinkle over the top before baking - I think that makes for a more attractive presentation. Loved the taste!

    I decreased the pickles a bit as they were too strong for my family's tastes, but this was really good!
