Cheeseburger Pie/ Breakfast Pie

1 lb. lean ground beef (or 1 lb. HOT breakfast sausage)
1 small onion, chopped
1 cup heavy cream
3 eggs, beaten
green chiles (if desired)
4 cups grated cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees; grease baking dish. Brown beef in large skillet with chopped onion over medium heat. Remove from heat, stir in cream, eggs and 3 cups cheese, season to taste. Pour mixture into baking dish; top with remaining cheese. Bake for 30 minutes (or until set and cheese is lightly browned.

This recipe is from Suzanne Somers' Fast and Easy cookbook as a protein/fat meal suited for Level One. We have also made this dish with HOT breakfast sausage for a yummy casserole type breakfast meal (I also added sliced mushrooms and of course, green chiles).

Serves 6-8
