Bacon Cheeseburger Upside-down Pizza/Bisquick
Since Larry grilled for us last night, we had the ingredients on-hand for the Bacon Cheeseburger Upside-Down Pizza I had planned for last night, and the Chicken Veg-all Casserole, I had planned for tonight. I allowed the kids to choose between the two. Guess what they picked? Bacon Cheeseburger Upside-Down Pizza, of course! Logan ended up eating with a friend after church, so it was just Larry, M.C. and me for supper. I didn’t cook the cheese sticks tonight since there was more than enough of the pizza for the three of us.
Ways I saved money:
I buy my ground beef in bulk packages.
I used store-brand cheese and pizza sauce.
I used a coupon on the Bisquick.
I bought the bacon during a BOGO (Buy One, Get One) special.
I don’t use a lot of recipes with specialty ingredients. I had pre-cooked and frozen both the ground beef and chicken. These things make it easy to be flexible with our meal plan when a change arises, without food going to waste.
Ways I saved calories:
I drained and rinsed the browned meat to remove as much fat as possible.
I used reduced-fat Bisquick. I usually only buy reduced-fat Bisquick. If I am preparing a dish that I want to have more fat, I just add a bit of oil or melted butter to the batter. This saves buying two different varieties of this product, and it’s one less box in the pantry.
