    6 servings


  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1-3/4 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced

    Did not like at all... didn't like the flavor combo of the sour cream and Italian seasoning with the blue cheese. Would not make again.

    I liked this, and I think my husband REALLY liked it... next time I'll use about 1/2 this amount of bleu cheese, though.

    I did a pizza variation for my kids with pizza sauce base and mozzerella cheese.

    This recipe is super easy to assemble and bake, it is a real time saver with a great flavor! My husband also really enjoys this recipe because it is loaded with beef and blue cheese - his favorites. Highly recommended :)

    Made this for the husband and he LOVED it and he is hard to please at times. The recipe was very simple and very fast and we are already planning on making it for my parents
