Taco Bake

Some days, I make something, and even though I'm plenty full, the flavor is SO amazing I want seconds..and thirds...and then maybe lick the spoon while cleaning it all up. I know I'm not the only one ;-) 
This...is one of those meals...for me, anyway! 
My cravings are psycho from one day to the next, and today it was taco casserole. Problem? I'm not gonna do my usual packages crescent roll recipe.
Off to cyber land to find a perf recipe!
(How DID people live before online recipe search anyway?)
And, because things are super easy to find online, this was in the oven (recipe below with all my modifications) within a half hour of initial craving onset. Dinner at 4? Sure, why not! 

Taco Casserole 
Crust:
4oz cream cheese
3 eggs
1/3 cup cream
1 tsp taco seasoning
Butter
Shredded cheese

Blend cream cheese and eggs together well. Add cream and taco seasoning and mix again. Grease a 9x13 with butter and sprinkle an even layer of shredded cheese on bottom of pan. Top with cream cheese mixture. Bake on 350 for a half hr. 

Meanwhile:

Brown 1lb ground beef with 1 chopped onion
Stir in:
1 cup pizza sauce
4tsp taco seasoning
Drizzle of milk or cream

Evenly spread on baked crust mixture. Top with some shredded cheese and return to oven for 15/20 min or until bubbly.

Serve with: 
Green onion
Tomato
Sour cream
Avocado
Shredded lettuce
Etc


Lunch tomorrow? I think yes! :-)
