Cheeseburger Pie - Family Favorite

My mom has been making Cheeseburger Pie for as long as I can remember. It is about the only thing that involves cottage cheese that I actually like. I don't think I was much of a fan as a child, but it has become one of my favorites as an adult. (That's risotto in the background, but that's another post....)

Note that any recipes marked as a Family Favorites are ones that we make often (that seems obvious, right?) and/or truly adore. I do try to credit where I obtain each of my recipes, but many of the Family Favorites have been floating around the family for so long that I have no idea as to the original source for them. This is one of those.
