Easily be the most popular pie for kids

This can easily be the most popular pie for the youngest crowd. It takes a while to make but the feedback is wonderful. The dill pickle juice really gives the pie a zesty taste.

Good as Red Robin

I have made this recipe twice now, and it has been a huge hit both times, and the critcs were all three and under. I did add a few ingredients, which may have helped. I just thought about what I like on my "real" cheesburgers and used that for inspiration. For example, I added some grilled onions when cooking the beef and I poured in a little Wicersire sause too to add a little flavor to the beef. The pickles flavor was strong, which was great, since I like pickles. I would recommend this for anyone who is tired of making the same old hamburgers or anyone looking for a creative way to make ground beef. Enjoy.

This was such a simple recipe. This is definitely a meal that the kids love - and the pickles add a nice touch.
