Yes, it does taste like a cheeseburger and is even better the next day when you microwave a wedge for lunch!
I paint the plate with ketchup and mustard and serve with Wickles Spicy Pickle Chips, or even lettuce and tomato, just the way I like my burgers. It is intentionally left rather ‘unseasoned’ except for the ketchup, salt and pepper… just like a burger.
- 1¼ pounds very lean ground beef (or ground sirloin or buffalo or even soy crumbles)
- 1 medium onion, diced
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- ¼ cup Heinze low sugar ketchup, found in most supermarkets
- ½ cup Inspire Protein Kitchen Pancake Mix
- 1 cup milk
- 2 eggs
- 4 ounces Cabot 70% Cheddar, shredded (Grating your own cheese is less expensive and no chemical additives. Use half of an 8 ounce bar of cheddar)
- Burger toppings - Ketchup, mustard, onion, and Wickles spicy pickle chips in my house
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray 9 inch pie plate, especially around edges, with non stick cooking spray.
- Cook the ground beef over medium high heat in a non-stick skillet for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently to break up the meat into fine pieces. Add the onions and saute an additional 2 to 3 minutes, until tender. Spoon off any fat in pan (I even use my kitchen tongs to sop up any grease with a paper towel) Stir in ketchup, season with salt and pepper and spoon into the prepared pie plate.
- Combine Inspire Protein Kitchen Pancake Mix, milk, and eggs in a small bowl until blended, stir in the cheese. Pour over the meat mixture in pie plate. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
- Cut into wedges and serve with toppings.
