Cheesy Cheeseburger Bake

Last night I made a Cheesy Cheeseburger Bake and it really did remind me of a cheeseburger! I was in need of a recipe that would not consume my entire afternoon and I stumbled across this great concoction. I made it my own by leaving out the onions and adding jalapeños, but isn't that what cooking is all about after-all? The best part about the meal was that I had EVERY ingredient already in our house! That was the cherry that topped off this flavorful meal. 

Here is what you will need: 

  • 1 to 1 1/2 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 can condensed Cheddar cheese soup
  • 1 1/2 jalapeño finely diced
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 1/4 cups baking mix
  • 3/4 cup water or chicken stock
  • 6 oz shredded Cheddar cheese

  • Heat oven to 400 degrees F
  • Generously spray 13x9 glass baking dish with cooking spray
  • In 10 inch skillet, cook beef and jalapeño over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until beef is browned; drain. Then stir in soup and milk
  • In a baking dish, stir baking mix and water until moistened [add some cheese to the mixture, it's a great way to work in the sharpness of the cheese]; spread evenly
  • spread beef mixture over batter then coat with cheese
  • Bake for 30 minutes 

I loved this meal. It was quick, easy and so full of great cheeseburger flavor!! This is one of my favorite meals to date, even though it is mildly simplistic!! I love the the baking mix as the foundation of the meal... it is warm and flaky! I would recommend this to anybody.

Until next time, happy baking! 

Pippy also wanted to be part of the process last night... he stuck his cute little nose in anytime he could!!!
