Recipe Exchange

I had an idea a few weeks back about having a bunch of girls over, everyone brings one of their favorite and easy dishes with the recipe. I told the Relief Society Pres. about it because I thought it would be a fun way to get to know all the new women in the ward. So wham bam, tonight we’re having the activity at my house!

I can’t wait, I love hosting parties, I wish I could do it professionally. The only thing is that my house is a reck and I’ll only have an hour to clean it up. But nothing makes you move faster than procrastination, right?

So, what will I be making for tonight? I wanted to make beef enchiladas or stuffed peppers because both are fairly easy (and delicious), but I didn’t want to have to buy lots of stuff. Instead, I’ve decided to make the classic “Easy Cheeseburger Pie” recipe by Betty Crocker. It’s kind of lame, but it is a good recipe to share because there are only a couple of ingredients and it’s a quick meal to make and eat. I posted about this dish last July, back when I cooked all the time. I recommend substituting the ground beef for ground turkey, limiting the cheese a bit, and using reduced sodium bisquick. That way, your mom won’t be as worried about your health!


1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1 large onion, chopped (1 cup)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 oz)
1/2 cup Original Bisquick® mix
1 cup milk
2 eggs


  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Spray 9-inch glass pie plate with cooking spray.
  2. In 10-inch skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is brown; drain. Stir in salt. Spread in pie plate. Sprinkle with cheese.
  3. In small bowl, stir remaining ingredients with fork or wire whisk until blended. Pour into pie plate.
  4. Bake about 25 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
