Oh so you want a cheeseburger?

Who the heck doesn’t want a cheeseburger? One time I ordered a burger without cheese. The response, along with a puzzled look – what’s a burger without cheese? I should have used the witty skills and replied “a hamburger” but I didn’t. Instead, I replied with some lame answer, something about not wanting to eat dairy during that particular time. Yawn.

No joke, this recipe is so super duper easy to make. You’re only gonna dirty up two dishes while prepping this – your skillet and a small bowl for mixing. Be sure to use an oven-safe skillet so you can go from stovetop to oven in a cinch. Can you guess which skillet I used?

    OK, if I knew there was going to be mushrooms involved, I would have definitely voted in favor of this! (duh … philly) Creamy, cheesy skillet dinners? Yes please! I hear you on the dairy thing (I’m lactose intolerant) – they always look at you like you are crazy!

    • says

      I’m pretty sure I am lactose intolerant as well! When I cut out dairy or only eat small amounts that have no or low lactose, I don’t get horrible stomach aches. But if I over indulge, I totally pay for it. And yes, they do look at you like you are crazy!!!

    What a great dish – I loved that you used gnocchi in this! It looks fabulous with all the gooey cheese and ready in 30 minutes too? Sounds perfect – sign me up!

    I’m new to using gnocchi, so forgive me if I appear ignorant, but I’ve been reading over the directions for the recipe trying to figure out where the meat mixture meets up with the gnocchi. Is the meat mixture served over the top of the gnocchi after it comes out of the oven? Is the gnocchi on the bottom of the meat mixture or mixed in? Do you recommend fresh or frozen gnocchi?

      Hi there Denise!

      Somehow I missed adding that step to the recipe when I was entering it into my post. You would mix in the gnocchi after you add in the veggies to the mixture. I have updated the steps so you will see it reflected there.

      I’ve never used frozen gnocchi. I purchased the packaged whole wheat variety that was located on the pasta isle in my grocery store.

      Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions! :)
