Ya'll. This was the absolute best. When I read the ingredients, I thought meh, how special could it be?
Wrong, space ranger. It was amazing.
It's super easy to make, with ingredients you probably already have.
1 lb of lean ground beef
6 slices of bacon
1 onion (I used yellow)
8 oz shredded cheddar (I used sharp)
6 dill pickle spears
1/2 cup mayo
Garlic powder, s&p, Lawry's seasoning
1/2 cup of Half and Half
Now, before you begin. The recipe I had originally said 1/4 cup of chopped onion. Ya'll know I can't chop veggies right, so I put the entire onion in the processor, and pulsed until it was mush. I knew it would evaporate when I cooked it, so no worries.
One more thing- buy good bacon. I bought a cheap $3 pack, KNOWING BETTER, and it was just meh.
I convinced myself that while I was browning the beef and onion, that I could just throw the bacon in the oven to cook simultaneously and that it would be okay.
Don't be like me. Cook it in a skillet.
Heat your oven to 350°.
Brown the meat and onion. I seasoned it generously with s&p, Lawry's, and garlic powder.
Cook the bacon.
I put 6 pickle spears in the processor and pulsed.
Of course you can just chop them up, but I am lazy.
Drain the beef, the bacon, then add the pickles to the beef/onion/chopped bacon.
Stir, then dump it into a baking dish.
Sprinkle the cheese over the meat/onion/pickle mixture.
Take 3 eggs, the mayo, and the half and half, and stir the mess out of it.
Pour it over the meat/pickle mixture, and bake it for 30 minutes.
When it came out of the oven, I meant to take a picture.
Scott had already dug into it and I said "WAAAIIITTTT!!!".
He covered up the missing chunk with his dirty work hands and went "HERE!!" LOLOL.
This is so so yummy. You get bites of the cheese, the pickle, the pulsed onion....
If you're the kind of person that enjoys biting into onion, chopped it the way to go.
I am not that person.
You can also tell the difference between Scott and I.
I used a real bowl, and garnished mine with more cheese, and some of the rest of the bacon that I cooked.
He used a Cool Whip bowl, and slathered it in ketchup.
Your taste buds will thank you.
I enjoy sports, binge watching TV, food, reading, and slightly bearded men.
