Fall is here, and the evenings are getting cooler. That means it is the season of soups and casseroles! I am not big on making casseroles, mainly because my family just doesn’t eat them. They don’t like too many things combined in one dish. They are kind of strange like that. My husband and son both eat all of one thing on their plate, before moving onto anything else. My husband won’t even put any side dishes on his plate until he has finished his main course. Crazy people, I tell ya’!

This Italian hamburger pie though, they both ate up quickly. Probably because it didn’t have a lot going on. You could doctor this up, and add some veggies if you wanted to. I just stuck with the basics.

This is my take on one of my husband’s favorites from his childhood – a simple hamburger casserole found in Bisquick cookbooks. This does take about 30 minutes in the oven, but less than 15 minutes of hands on time. Perfect amount of time for you to help kids with homework, or get some laundry folded. Whatever you need to get done on busy weeknights while it cooks.

I served this hamburger pie with a side salad for a quick and healthy dinner. If you have an extra few minutes, you could even whip up Lemon Garlic Vinaigrette for your salad. Leftovers of this were perfect the next day for lunch. This cheesy pie would also be excellent with Julia's Roasted Garlic and Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes Recipe.
