It is all made in one pan, with just a few ingredients. I really wanted to create a meal that had all the cheeseburger flavor with a lot less work, and fewer dishes. This is the one!

This is an American classic in a pan. I have also gone ahead and added bacon, because you know, a cheeseburger needs bacon!

Cheeseburger in a skillet is a crowd pleaser. If you have any left, it stores perfectly in the refrigerator for a few days.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            Can I add to this recipe?

You can certainly add to it. You could add spices, jalapeno pepper slices, red pepper flakes or any number of ideas.

            Can I make this gluten free?

You should use gluten free pasta to make this a gluten free meal. To make it dairy free, use a vegan cheese instead.

            Can I store leftovers?

You can place any leftovers in an airtight container and keep it in the refrigerator for 3 days.

            How do I reheat this dish?

When you want to reheat you can use the microwave until it is heated through, you can place it in a pan and add a little water or beef broth,  stir well and heat on the stove top.

You could add beef broth to the pan, cover with aluminum foil and bake it for 30 minutes, stirring once or twice to mix well.
