Cheeseburger pie is like the winter version of a delicious BBQ'd hamburger. Kids (and adults) love this recipe!

Cheeseburger Pie Recipe

This recipe takes the flavours of a cheeseburger and puts them inside a pie crust. What child wouldn't love that?! I kind of think of it as the winter version of a hamburger. Cheeseburger pie has everything you would expect in a burger and if you want to, you can even serve it with ketchup and a side of fries!

Ingredients

  • 2 x 9" unbaked pie shells I buy the frozen variety
  • 2 eggs slightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup onion minced
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/8 cup mustard
  • 1 Tbsp. parsley flakes
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 - 1 1/2 lbs. lean ground beef
  • 2/3 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • paprika

Instructions

  1. Prick the pie crusts several times with a fork. Bake at 450° for 5 minutes until golden. Cool.
  2. In a medium to large bowl, mix eggs, milk, onions, seasonings, bread crumbs, and raw beef. Mix well. Spread beef mixture into the two pie shells. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes.
  3. Remove the pies from the oven and speak the tomato sauce over the tops. Sprinkle with the grated cheese, garnish with paprika and put the pies back into the oven.
  4. Bake an additional 10 minutes or until the cheese melts.
  5. Serve with a salad or fries (or both) on the side. My kids like to put ketchup on theirs.

Recipe Notes

This recipe makes two cheeseburger pies. For our large family, that's one meal. If you have a smaller family, you could easily freeze the second for another meal or use it for leftovers or lunches. If you're not going to eat the second pie, you can either freeze it raw and cook it the day of serving or cook it with other one, freeze it afterwards and reheat on the day of serving.
