Impossible Bacon Cheeseburger Pie


This may not look like much, but to quote my hubby last week... "This is my all time favorite thing that you cook."  Say what?!?!?!?!  I have done a lot of cooking throughout our marriage, so this is not a statement I take lightly, (which is why I made it for him again tonight.)  Now let me just say that the reason he may like it so much is because he LOOOOOOOVES cheeseburgers, but I can't get over how much he "mmmmm's" when he is eating this.  It makes me happy.

Let me also say that the only reason he even tasted this was because I am so dang tired at the end of the day that I have been looking for SUPER fast, easy recipes to make for dinner so that I can feed my family every night.  Last year I was diagnosed with MS, and honestly, it's been a pretty tough year, but I'm able to cope because of little adjustments, like cooking simple meals on the nights I'm really tired.  

My mom used to make "impossible pie" for us growing up sometimes.  She made ham & cheese, taco, tomato, onion & cheese, the possibilities are pretty much endless as to what you can put in it.  You just basically fill your pie pan with whatever you like, then pour over a mixture of Bisquick baking mix, eggs and milk.  

Knowing my hubby like I do, I figured I was pretty safe with bacon cheeseburger ingredients.  This recipe is super quick to prepare, takes 20-25 minutes to bake, and will satisfy the pickiest of eaters.  I sometimes throw lettuce and chopped tomatoes, onions and pickles on the top of mine.  Mike just eats his with some extra ketchup.  You can just serve a fun salad on the side if you aren't sure.  Here's how you make it:

(Note, this makes 2 pies!)

Ingredients
  • 12-16 oz bacon
  • 1 1/2-2 pounds hamburger
  • 1 tsp salt 
  • 1 Tbsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar 
  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup Bisquick baking mix
Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Spray two 9inch pie pans with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a skillet, cut up the bacon in to little bits with kitchen shears, (I cut several slices at a time), and cook over medium high heat until crispy.  Drain on paper towels.  
  3. Get rid of any remaining bacon fat in the pan, then in the same skillet, brown the hamburger meat with the salt, onion powder and pepper.  Once it is cooked through, stir in the ketchup.
  4. Put half the hamburger mixture on the bottom of each pie pan.  Sprinkle half the cheese in each pan on top of the hamburger.  Sprinkle half the bacon in each pan over the cheese.  
  5. In a blender, add the milk, eggs and Bisquick baking mix and blend until smooth.  (Note:  I always put in wet ingredients in to the blender first so the dry don't get stuck on the bottom.) 
  6. Gently pour half the mixture in to each pie pan over your other ingredients.  
  7. Bake for 20-25 mins at 400 degrees.
I know what you are thinking... but you should at least try it.  Your fam will love you!
