lean (at least 80%) ground beef
shredded Cheddar cheese
Original Bisquick® mix
I have been making this since I first saw it on the Bisquick box. Like other reviewers, I add more seasoning to the beef, such as a pack of taco or chili mix. I also add a can of black beans and a small can of chopped green chilies to the meat mixture. I also use a combination of shredded cheeses and put a layer of diced tomatoes in between the meat and the cheese. This is a very easy and quick meal.
I’ll make it again, but will flavor the beef more. I liked the idea of a taco seasoning packet from another reviewer, or I might just do more onion and lots of garlic. Chili powder? I don’t know. I think I’d like it with corn in it, but my family overruled me on that one.
Haha. Some really hated this recipe. Some thought it was 'bland'. Well, duh. If you treat this as more than a concept recipe, you are probably going to be disappointed. After all, who eats PLAIN cheeseburgers? (My little cousin, but that's besides the point.) I dressed this as I would my regular burgers. Layers were: hamburger (seasoned with garlic and onion powder), crumbled bacon, raw onions (mm, crunchy), chopped dill pickles (trust me), cheese, homemade buttermilk biscuit (dough that I had in the fridge). When it was cooked, I plated it on top of whole leaf lettuce, would have added tomatoes if I had 'em, and thousand island dressing. It was tasty, casserole-y, and cheeseburger-y. Get out there and experiment. Recipes are not set in stone. (Unless it is creme brulee, I'm pretty sure that's set in stone somewhere... in France.) Thanks for a good start to a decent supper.
I make this about once a month and my kids just love it. I am always seeking to find what can be added and one of mine and my husbands favorites is a can of mushrooms, green pepper and swiss cheese. I have to make two for my large family and make one with American cheese, bacon, tomato, and onion, and when it comes out of the oven top with shredded lettuce. This is my children's favorite way. I love this dinner served with season curly fires or tater tots. I also make the morning of and keep refrigerated until cooked. This is a GREAT and healthy dinner to make on a snap. Just Love It.
Fool-proof and tasty. I cut down the onions by half and chopped them finely to make the recipe more kid friendly, and then squirted a layer of ketchup between the burger and cheese layer which gave it a very nice flavor. I'm giving it five stars not because it's exceptional, but because it's tastes good and is VERY easy to make.
My mother used to make this all the time and she would do the same, add this here, there , to our liking. She would also use other bisquick recipes too. Very helpful to a single widowed mom of two small children, it was a keeper for her tight schedule, better than fast food, or boxed dinners! TY for reposting this as this is fond memories and surely be served at my table!
Quick, easy, and very adaptable. I used ground turkey and browned it with a half package of onion soup mix, along with the onions. I also mixed cheddar and mozzarella cheeses. Great for a last minute rush meal!
**UPDATE** Just for the heck of it, I tried this again tonight w/ sloppy joe mix in the meat... Mmmmm, an equally delish. variety!!!
I think my mom was making this when I was a kid! Tonight I served it to my picky college student and she liked it. Next time I'll try the taco seasoning idea and maybe pepper jack for the cheese.
