When my brother and I were still kids, our parents always brought us to our favorite fast food restaurants at least once a month. This was their way of indulging us and controlling our fast food intake at the same time. They both believed that if they deprived us of it, it would backfire. So, at least once a month, we got to enjoy those juicy burgers and yummy fries. In between our visits Mom used to indulge us at home by cooking a homemade, healthier version of our favorite fast food treats. My favorite has to be her burger and fries casserole, which was mostly composed of ground beef, lots of cheese, and fun-shaped potatoes.
This burger and fries recipe that I discovered over at Betty Crocker gives these fast food treats another make over. This time, it’s in the form of a pot pie. I think it’s a genius recipe! Even my niece and nephews will enjoy this. They can be granted this pie at least once a month. I am pretty sure that once those kids have a taste, they will never ever look at homemade pies the same way again. It can also be a way of reducing those trip to the fast food restaurants!
