Cheeseburger Pie

Have you Ever Heard of

CheeseBurger Pie???

…Me neither! ūü§£

But, My Kids LOVE it!!!

My MIL made them Cheeseburger Pie when she came to babysit last month, ¬†and now they are BOTH requesting it. ¬†That’s right….

I. SAID. BOTH.

So, I just had to share with you a dinner that I can add to the (very short) list I like to call: ¬†“Dinners Both Kids Will Eat”. ¬†These dinners, as we all know, are few and far between, so when I find one, I feel its my parental duty to share!!!

I made my first one this week, by request, and only have one picture taken right out of the oven, pre-slicing. ¬†The kids (and hubby!!!) gobbled it up so fast, I never had a chance to get a good pic of a slice. I’m sure I’ll be making this again next week. I’ll try and snap a pic then and update the post. ¬†As for now, I wanted to get the recipe out to y’all asap!!! Enjoy and share with all the parents you know! ¬†This ones a life changer! ¬†Nana made the original recipe from www.chowhound.com and I have made a few adaptations. ¬†Here’s my version below:
