Impossible Cheeseburger Pie
Here we have Impossible Cheeseburger Pie.
Just What Is Hamburger?
Ground beef that has been shaped into a patty cooked and served between a split hamburger bun. Some sources trace the first record of the hamburger to a menu from Delmonico's Restaurant in New York in 1834, despite its name relation to the city of Hamburg, Germany. The popularity of the hamburger soared in the 1920s with the advent of White Castle roadside resturants, which led the growth of the fast food burger chain industry. Today a family favorite, hamburger patties are often cooked outdoors on the grill and served with a variety of condiments, including lettuce, tomatoes, onions, ketchup, mayonnaise, mustard, and pickles. If a slice of cheese is added to the mix it becomes a cheeseburger.
Just because ground beef is cheaper doesn't make it a better buy than ground chuck or ground round. Expect more shrinkage in recipes made from ground beef because most of the fat cooks out. But let me tell you another secret here. The cheaper ground beef will always make a better tasting more flavorful hamburger because of the higher fat content.
Ground beef is beef that has been put through a meat grinder. It's mostly used for hamburgers. Ground beef must be at least 70% lean according to federal regulations. Ground chuck must be at least 80 % lean, while ground round must be 85 % lean. Generally, the more fat theground beef contains, the paler the meat will be and the less expensive it will be.
I prefer the flavor and texture of burgers and meatloaves made from ground chuck. But if your going to add seasonings to your burgers use the cheapest hamburger available for the best flavor. Ground beef is also perfect for spaghetti or carne sauces, just be sure that you drain it well.
Ground Beef Storage
Ground beef is much more perishable than roasts or steaks, which means it has a shorter shelf life. Immediately freeze any ground beef you don't plan to use with in 2 - 3 days. And be sure that you refrigerate leftovers containing ground beef within 2 hours after cooking. Frozen ground beef will keep up to 2 weeks in its original packaging, but for longer storage drop the wrapped package in a large zip lock bag. You can then freeze it up to six months. Shape into individual patties or loaves before freezing, if desired and you have the time.
