Back when my husband and I were newlyweds, I found a recipe for Impossibly Easy Chicken and Broccoli Pie on the back of a Bisquick box, and it quickly became one of my go-to recipes. Inexpensive, easy to prepare, and simple ingredients that I could keep on hand made it a total winner -- oh, and it tastes pretty good, too!
At some point we got a little weary of it, so I hadn't made it in quite awhile... But then I recently stumbled on this Impossibly Easy Mini Blue Cheeseburger Pies recipe. My kids are total suckers for any recipe that's miniaturized like this, and hello, cheeseburger pie??? They love the flavors of blue cheese and French fried onions, so I was excited to give it a try.
Just like the original chicken and broccoli pie, the crust for these mini blue cheese cheeseburger pies is formed by a simple mixture of Original Bisquick mix, milk and eggs.
You simply pour a tablespoon of it into the bottom of each muffin cup, top it with some of the blue cheeseburger mixture, and then pour another tablespoon of the Bisquick mixture over the top. With a few minutes left to bake, you sprinkle some French fried onions over the top, so that they can brown a little.
Just as I'd hoped, my family loved these mini blue cheese cheeseburger pies! Since so many recipes start with a simple ground beef and onions mixture like this, you could even cook up a big batch of that ahead of time and portion it out to freeze, saving some time. I'd recommend dividing it into 2-cup portions to freeze -- about 4 cups should do it for this particular recipe (so you'd thaw two portions).
P.S. While the kids loved them as is, my husband and I like to drizzle homemade buffalo sauce over the top of them. It's ah-mazing!!!
