Cheeseburger Pie

Have you Ever Heard of

CheeseBurger Pie???

…Me neither! ūü§£

But, My Kids LOVE it!!!

My MIL made them Cheeseburger Pie when she came to babysit last month, ¬†and now they are BOTH requesting it. ¬†That’s right….


So, I just had to share with you a dinner that I can add to the (very short) list I like to call: ¬†“Dinners Both Kids Will Eat”. ¬†These dinners, as we all know, are few and far between, so when I find one, I feel its my parental duty to share!!!

I made my first one this week, by request, and only have one picture taken right out of the oven, pre-slicing. ¬†The kids (and hubby!!!) gobbled it up so fast, I never had a chance to get a good pic of a slice. I’m sure I’ll be making this again next week. I’ll try and snap a pic then and update the post. ¬†As for now, I wanted to get the recipe out to y’all asap!!! Enjoy and share with all the parents you know! ¬†This ones a life changer! ¬†Nana made the original recipe from and I have made a few adaptations. ¬†Here’s my version below:

cheeseburger pie



  • Heat Oven 400¬į F. ¬†Make sure the oven rack is in the middle. ¬†Coat one 9-inch pie dish with Cooking Spray.
  • Warm frying pan over medium heat. ¬†Warm 1 tablespoon Oil. ¬†Add diced onion. ¬†Sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook for 5 mins or so until golden but not brown. Raise Heat to Med-High and add ground beef, salt, pepper, and dry mustard. Stirring occasionally until the meat is browned. ¬†Add Worcestershire sauce and stir. ¬†Then add garlic and cook 1-2 mins until fragrant, but not burned!!! Take off heat and Drain Off Fat. ¬†Spread cooked meat mixture evenly into the pie dish.
  • In food processor, pulse together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. ¬†Add the cold butter pats and pulse until mixture starts to look like breadcrumbs. ¬†Add milk and eggs and pulse until mixture is blended.
  • Pour batter over meat mixture in the pie dish.
  • Top with shredded cheese of choice (totaling about a cup).
  • Bake until set and a gorgeous golden brown. ¬†About 25-35 mins or until a knife inserted into the middle comes out clean.
  • Let cool for 5 minutes. ¬†Slice and served garnished with fresh chopped parsley or chives.


You can change this basic recipe up tons of ways!!! Simple additions depending on your families tastes and preferences.  Heres a list of some simple, delicious ingredients to add:

  • Mushrooms

If your kids won’t eat chopped Onion and Garlic, you can always try adding 1 tsp Onion Powder and 1 tsp Garlic Powder.

 Or try adding Sliced Scallions or Green Onion.
