Hopefully, I can now blog merrily along without further interruptions.
Today I thought I would share this meal I recently prepared with these simple ingredients and some mashed potatoes.
These humble ingredients turned into this very tasty Cheeseburger/Mashed Potato Pie.
My son used to love this when he was at home.
The first thing I do is put 1 pound of burger in a glass pie plate. Just quickly even it out. Don't pay much attention to how nice the sides look because they won't stay like that anyway. Season to your liking. I just used salt/pepper.
Bake on 350 degrees for 20 minutes. See how it shrinks down from the sides? That's why you don't want to fuss with it. Drain off all the fat. I then added some caramelized onions & celery and sprinkled assorted cheese crumbles on the bottom. Use any cheese your family likes.
Add a layer of mashed potatoes. Add more cheese. I used American cheese slices here because of its melting qualities. Cover this cheese with more mashed potatoes and sprinkle more cheese on top. I used sharp cheddar on top. Bake another 20 minutes or until heated through.
When it comes out of the oven, you can add a little green garnish. I used some of my own chives that I froze this fall as well as some celery tops.
Let it sit about 10 minutes before cutting.
MMMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm......Serve with a side of green beans for a very easy and tasty dinner.
