Recipe: Cheeseburger in Paradise Pie...

This may not be the MOST healthy recipe that I've ever posted, but DAYUM - it is tasty and you can use ingrdients that make it more healthy.  I calculated 1340 for the whole recipe, so eating 1/4 would be only 335 calories and eating 1/2 of the pie would be 670.  Depending on how you "spend" your calories during the day, this is a very reasonable dinner, especially paired with a low cal side salad!


1 lb lean ground beef (I used 94% lean)
1 large onion (chopped)
1/2 teaspoon of seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
a dash or worchester sauce
1 cup of shredded cheese (I used fat free Mozzarella)
1 cup of skim milk
1/2 cup of Original Bisquick mix
2 eggs


Heat oven to 400°F.

Spray a 9 inch pie plate with non-stick cooking spray

Cook beef and chopped onion in a skillet over medium about 10 minutes or until beef is brown.

After the meat is browned, drain off all the excess liquid and fat - you don't want it in the pie and draining it will lose some calories!

Stir in salt, garlic powder and worchester sauce and then spread in pie plate.

Next, sprinkle the shredded cheese on top of the beef

Using fat-free cheese will save you over 300 calories for the whole recipe!!!  

In a small bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs and Bisquick. Make sure you try to get as many lumps out as you can.

Pour this over meat mixture.

Bake in oven for 25 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.

Hope you enjoy!!
