Bacon Cheeseburger Bake

Bacon Cheeseburger Bake

 

Ode to a cheeseburger what a wonderful thing
With pickles, onions tomatoes and cheese
I’m easy to please
With its buns and seeds it has no needs
Except to fill you up even if you get stuck
And yell oh shucks!
With its cousin the French fry
It tells no lies
With ketchup in your right
and the last fry in your left
Its just the burger on your plate
It truly is impossible to hate

Bacon Cheeseburger Bake - Savour the flavours of a cheeseburger with your fork! | @Emmmmrz www.emmmmerz.com/Cheeseburgers are amazing things, and this bake is no exception.
It has a buttery biscuit-y topping, and lots and lots of cheese throughout. NOT diet friendly! Definitely an absolute favorite around our home.

I own this neat little gadget called a salad shooter {Amazon Link}, that I use to shred cheese to save money and time. My son loves using it when he’s allowed to help, lol.

Filling:
1/2 14.5 oz can of diced tomato
1 cup chopped spinach
1 yellow onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 cup chopped fresh spinach, stems removed
1 pound ground beef
1/4 tablespoon chili powder
1⁄2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons paprika
1⁄2 teaspoon Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup diced cooked bacon
2 cups cubed cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

  7. Mix together biscuit batter ingredients until well blended, pour over filling.
