This is my version of the Bisquick classic 'Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie'. My hubby loves his bacon and garlic so I've add those ingredients to to the mix. I've found it gives this sometimes bland recipe a new kick. I've even thought of adding 1/4 cup of Bulls Eye barbecue sauce. If anyone tries it, let me know how that turns out. Hope you gals enjoy this quick and easy crowd pleaser!
