Cheeseburger Pie

For my first blog entry almost a year ago (when the only 2 people reading this blog were my kids), I attempted to cook and write about Mom’s infamous Cheeseburger Pie.  It was without a doubt my favorite dinner dish served.  The flavorful ground beef combined with heaping portions of shredded cheddar cheese, all sealed together with batter and baked to pie perfection- amazing!  As a kid, I had no idea I was eating Mom’s cheesy, no potato version of Shepherd’s Pie.  To me, Cheeseburger Pie was like a virtual trip to Wendy’s without leaving the comforts of our own kitchen.

As I expected, my kids LOVE this meal. In fact, it’s a two-serving dish for both. Not surprisingly, they favor my recipe tweaks with the substitution of ground chicken or ground turkey filling in place of the ground beef.

Either way, this is a dish not-to-be-missed.  It’s perfectly simple to make (I can now say that with confidence). With only four ingredients, it shouldn’t require any trips to the market (except for maybe the Bisquick mix).

It’s ideal for weekday dinnertime because in under one hour, you’ll have a hearty, hassle-free meal on the table!

So, what are you waiting for?  Get cooking.

  2. I just stumbled across your blog while looking for a healthy frittata recipe and was so surprised to see the handwritten copy of your Mom’s Impossible Cheeseburger Pie. I also lost my Mom 6 1/2 years ago and have her handwritten copy of the very same recipe. Thanks for putting me a smile on my face & warming my heart today on this cold & snowy Chicago day:)

    Best to you!
