Are you having one of "those" days? The kids are pulling on you from every direction (literally, one has your pant leg and won't let go), the husband is late at work again and you have a full night of 9-to-5 office work to do? The last thing you want to worry about is dinner, right? Why not serve up this one-pot, incredibly delicious cheeseburger pie?
This savory pie is filled with all the flavors your family loves in regular cheeseburgers, but is served up in a unique fork-and-plate kind of way. This will be such a hit, you may even get a few minutes of silence while they are gobbling it up.
