TASTEFUL THURSDAY: Cheeseburger Bake

Happy Thursday My Friends!

Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence, Lord. PSALM 89:15
Today, I made a legit dinner, as I had some time in the afternoon to really cook, and some ground beef in the fridge.

Growing up, my mom has always made the dinner of our request on each of our birthdays. For me, that was usually either meatloaf or spaghetti as a kid. And that sounded so good for dinner tonight, so I whipped up my own recipe for a dairy-free cheesy meaty goodness– but feel free to substitute real cheese for the Daiya!

definitely not the prettiest, but deliiiicious

Again, I actually didn’t measure any of these ingredients, so the below are estimates! 😛
Cheeseburger Bake
Recipe Yields 1 Serving
1/4 lb ground beef
3 slices smoked ham, shredded
1 egg
1 Tbsp oats
1/2 Tbsp mayonaise
3 Tbsp shredded cheddar cheese, or dairy-free substitute (I used Daiya Cheddar Shreds)
1 tsp soy sauce
salt and pepper
2 Tbsp ketchup
1 tsp oregano
1. In medium bowl, combine ground beef, 2 slices ham, egg, oats, mayo, cheese, soy sauce, salt and pepper, and 1 Tbsp ketchup until consistent. 
2. Press mixture into a small, un-greased baking dish. Top with remaining 1 slice shredded ham, remaining ketchup, and oregano.

3. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes; allow to cool about 10 minutes before serving.
