Easy dish youngsters love: cheeseburger pie

The Baltimore Sun

Lillian Burr of Baltimore was looking for a recipe for a cheeseburger pie. She was pretty sure it had some kind of a pancake topping but could not remember much else. Janet Morrissey, also of Baltimore, had a recipe for a cheeseburger pie that she found many years ago on a box of Bisquick baking mix. She said that her kids loved it when they were growing up.

This is a kid-friendly dish if there ever was one. It's a snap to make and has everything kids and grown-ups are bound to like.

When served with a green salad, it makes an ideal weeknight supper for the family.
