April 16, 2012

With tax day just a few days away, we could all use a little more money in our pockets and some delicious food in our belly.  This cheeseburger pie from Bisquick is a cheap and easy meal for any night of the week.  This dish only costs approximately $1.20 per serving (that's hard to beat!).  Serve this cheeseburger pie with a simple iceburg lettuce salad and all you'll be missing is the bun.
