Lazy Cheeseburgers

This may very well be the easiest recipe I have EVER made. I actually felt guilty about it afterwards. lol Taste wise, it isn’t exactly gourmet but it’s good, satisfying comfort food.  This gets my stamp of approval because even my 3 year old liked it! It comes together in a flash and the only thing I needed to chop was the garlic. I may become addicted to this stuff.  Instead of hamburger buns, I served it on top of the cheddar biscuits I made the night before, which gave it an extra shot of flavour. Good stuff my friends.
