cheeseburger two

My family loves pizza and I love the challenge of coming up with different kinds of pizza! I make it a personal mission to come up with new, easy, fun and yummy family meals. I also work full time in Sales & Marketing and have 4 active children. My time is short and my energy level low at the end of the day so fast is a must! We all know once the snack cabinet is open while waiting for food, appetites for dinner will diminish!

I had this idea for a simple cheeseburger “stir fry” and it just evolved into pizza!

“Cheeseburger stir fry”
Spray your heated pan with cooking spray. Cook 1/4 cup of diced onions until translucent then add one pound of ground beef. Cook/scramble beef thoroughly draining off the grease when done. While mixture is hot stir  in 3-5 tablespoons of ketchup and 1-2 tablespoons of dijon mustard. Taste the mixture and adjust to suite your taste.

Spread the cheeseburger mixture on your favorite pizza crust. I topped with american cheese but use whatever you like on your cheeseburger! You could also add cooked bacon (but I did not) for a bacon cheeseburger variety. Cook until crust is cooked/heated and the cheese is melted. Remove from oven and add your favorite cheeseburger toppings such as pickles, lettuce, tomatoes, ketchup, mustard etc.

For a gluten-free version for my son I simply skipped the crust and stirred the cheese into the mixture. I served it to him as the original “stir fry” mixture I envisioned.

 

For lunch I packed a slice in my Easylunchboxes container and included:

  • Mangos & blackberries
  • Snyder’s Gluten Free Pretzels

Sincerely,
Deb
