Cheeseburger pot pie is a simple, home cooked comfort food that will both please and nourish your family.
This cheeseburger pot pie is the perfect meal for busy families like my own. With the start of school comes chaos which will be a stark and difficult contrast to the laid back life we’ve been living. That chaos will no doubt take a toll on all of us. My mom recently told me that I looked old. My reply was simple; of course, I look old, I am a tired, mom-taxi to three kids.
I have a love hate relationship with the whole busy schedule thing. I love that our kids are active, that they have hobbies, interests, friends, and teammates. They are learning life skills in their individual and team sports that will help them as they grow older. I am also keenly aware that over-scheduling and placing too many demands on kids and their time can be detrimental to their development not to mention how it can disrupt family life. So how do we find the balance?
My Other Recipes
I don’t have that answer. I do, however, have an answer on how to get dinner on the table. This cheeseburger pot pie is so easy and is perfect for those lucky nights when the whole family makes it to the dinner table. Kids love cheeseburgers and that flavor is replicated in this easy pot pie. I use lean ground beef in this recipe. Lean beef is an important part of a healthy diet for kids. Research shows that including lean beef daily as part of a healthy diet can help lower cholesterol levels. For student athletes and active kids, there is no better choice than beef. The protein in beef helps build muscle and strong bodies.
A cheeseburger has to have ketchup, mustard, pickles, and cheese; so does this pot pie! Your kids will love biting down onto the seasoned biscuits that make a fun crust for this pot pie. The saucy, cheesy, meaty filling make this a family-friendly dinner that you’ll come back to over and over again. Want more fun beef recipes? Try these Taco Hand Pies and BBQ Beef Walking tacos!
