Cheeseburger pie? For serious? I yelled at Lee a little when he told me he was making this. After all, we ARE trying to eat more healthily. But sometimes, you just have try the deliciousness.
This crustless pie is a lot like a very meat dense quiche. The egg is a little surprising, but livens up the flavor of the whole dish. And of course, when you add cheddar cheese to the top of anything, that makes it even better.
Now, most of you out there are going to use ground beef for that and that's cool, but we used a ground venison and pork mixture that we had on hand. We served ours with the Polenta Fries that we posted last night... a perfect pairing!
