Delicious Cheeseburger Pie

Who doesn’t like cheeseburgers? They are an all time American favorite. This cheeseburger pie is one of my family’s favorite recipes. Mine too, as it is really quick and easy to make. It’s really quite healthy too. Lean ground beef, onion, green peppers and cheese. Add a flaky pie crust and you have a low fat, delicious and inexpensive meal!

If you prefer to make this even healthier you can use ground venison instead of ground beef. I use venison in most of my meals in place of beef, as it is much lower in fat and no preservatives or other “additives”. You can also use a low fat cheese and no or low fat milk.

Ingredients

  • 1 pie crust, uncooked
  • 1 pound ground beef, lean
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 8 oz can tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese or colby jack, shredded
  1. Heat oven to 425 and bake the pie crust until just beginning to brown then set aside. In a medium skillet, cook hamburger, onion and green pepper until the hamburger is browned and drain. Mix in the salt, pepper, bread crumbs and ½ cup of the tomato sauce and mix well. Pour ingredients into pie crust.
  2. Beat the egg and milk together. Add the seasonings and cheese. Mix well. Pour the cheese mixture over the top of the pie and place in the oven at 425 just long enough for the pie crust to finish browning and the cheese mixture to melt.
  3. Mix the remaining tomato sauce with ½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce and pour over the pie just before serving.

Add sliced pickles on the side or maybe serve with some potato salad! Your whole family will love this!

Hello pstraubie! I have never tried to cheeseburger pie from Bisquick, but I think it would be too much dough for me too. This one would be much lighter. I thank you for passing this on to your daughter, I hope she enjoys it! Thank you for stopping in! Angles and Hubhugs back to you, my friend! :)

Patricia Scott from North Central Florida on December 14, 2012:

Good morning

The only cheeseburger pie I have ever had was one from Bisquick and while it was okay there was too much dough to suit me. this one looks much lighter and while I do not bake these types of dishes now, my daughter does so I am passing it on to her. thanks for sharing with us.
