In honor of National Cheeseburger Day, here is my version of a lower-fat cheeseburger casserole. I threw this together one day and, if I do say so myself, it kicks butt. Since I have a habit of not measuring, I’ll do my best with the amounts on the ingredients list. Your kids will love this. It tastes like a McDonald’s cheeseburger and fries–sans the 500 lbs. of fat per mouthful, that is. Okay, here we go:

Ingredients:

1 lb lean ground beef
1 can tomato paste
1 large onion
1/4 cup ketchup
2 T yellow mustard
2% American cheese slices
salt & pepper to taste
16 oz. jar of small round dill pickles
1.5 lb. steam-in-the-bag Yukon Gold potatoes

Directions:

Cook onions in a pan with a bit of oil until soft. Add beef and cook until brown. Stir in tomato paste, salt and pepper, ketchup and mustard. Meanwhile, cook the steam-in-bag potatoes in the microwave as per the directions on bag. Cut up cooked potatoes and line a greased 7″ x 11″ pan with them. Add meat mixture. Cover surface with American cheese slices. Bake at 350º F for 20 mins. or so until cheese has melted. Top with pickles and serve.

You’ll want to bring this to your next Super Bowl or tailgate party.
