This dish really is like eating all the best parts of a cheeseburger. Forget the bun. Don't go near the french fries. (Unless you are making some turnip, rutabaga or jicama fries as per the instructions in the March Diner News) These can be held in your hand or eaten with a fork. You choose. I happen to like the taste of the dill pickle. It really makes for an authentic flavor. Truth told, I sometimes divide my mixture and make some without the pickles. Poor sad boy who doesn't do pickles.
This recipe is forgiving. The full Multiply Meal uses a can of diced tomatoes. For the single version, you have a choice. This time, I used a fresh roma tomato. If you don't have fresh you can sub 1/4 cup of a mild salsa.
1 lb ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion
8 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 roma tomato or 1/4 cup mild salsa
1/4 cup yellow mustard or spicy brown mustard
2 tbsp dill pickle relish
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
Brown the ground beef with the onion. Drain. In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, eggs and mayonnaise until no lumps remain. Stir in the ground beef mixture, chopped tomato or salsa, mustard and pickle.Reserve 1/4 cup of cheese for topping and stir the remaining cheese into the mixture. Pour into a casserole dish and bake 40 minutes or until set in the center. Alternately, spoon mixture into silicone baking cups. Place cups on a rimmed cookie sheet and bake 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees or until set in the center. Cups will rise then fall when cooling. 6 very generous portions. (you may choose to make it 8-10 servings depending on calorie goals)

I serve this simply with some lettuce and a squirt of sugarfree ketchup. Yum.
