BACON CHEESEBURGER PIE
I love bacon cheeseburgers so why not make it easy and do it all up in a pie plate? I wasn't quite sure how to go about it. I thought of the "Impossible Cheeseburger Pie" recipe from Bisquick and thought maybe I'd try to take that and do a low carb version. Then I thought of my bun recipe and thought why not just make the batter for that and pour it on top? That's what I ended up doing and I love the way it turned out. Then the burger part...what do I like on my burgers? Plus, ya gotta have that smokey grilled flavor right? So all in all I put it all in a pie and loved the way it turned out and so did my family. I hope you'll enjoy it as well. The pictures were taken in haste as an after thought, unfortunately when most of the pie was gone already! So they aren't tops, but you get the idea of what it looks like.
