Coming up with family friendly recipes that don’t take much time to make can often be challenging.  Part of my mission on this blog is to help regular families put a well balanced dinner on the table most nights of the week.

This cheeseburger pie fits that bill in our house.  The only hands on time required is the time that it takes to cut up an onion and brown ground beef.  Whip up the custard while the beef is browning, assemble and pop it in the oven for thirty minutes.

Both of my kids are big fans of this.  My daughter claims it’s “absolutely delicious”.  It’s definitely not gourmet food, but it is certainly family friendly.

Serve it with some roasted vegetables, a big salad, or some cut up fruit, and you have yourself a great well balanced weeknight meal.
