RECIPE BACKSTORY
I read some reviews on this recipe and some were saying this tasted like a McDonalds Cheeseburger well guess what? This dish was so much better than that and put McDonalds to shame in my opinion! A great cheeseburger without the bottom bun which means less carbs right? We loved this and I think I loved it the most since I could of, but didn't, eat the whole thing! Everything about it tasted like a cheeseburger! My DH would have liked the pickles to have been smaller diced but I "chunky" diced them and they were perfect! This dish will be on the menu again soon! Sooooo Delicious! The only things I changed in this recipe is to brush the top with a beaten egg and not milk and I upped everything else that goes in it since I had more than a pound of ground beef, which was a good thing because all of it was eaten! I listed the ingredients the way I made it! I found this recipe on Pinterest and you can find some awesome recipes there!
