Guaranteed to be a new family fave!

!chzbrgpie97 BLOGS


This is the basic recipe…use your imagination to make any ‘burger’ you like.  I topped mine with spicy ketchup and dill chips.

How about a Cowboy Burger – pinto beans mixed into the meat part…BBQ sauce slathered under the cheese topping.

Or some blue cheese crumbled in and roasted garlic.  Or feta cheese and Greek olives?  WOW!

Serve this with a fresh and crispy green salad and the family won’t miss the BUNS!




Vegetable Cooking Spray
1 pound ground beef OR  Vegetarian version:  1 pkg. Morningstar Crumbles
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil (IF USING VEGGIE MEAT)
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon Adobo seasoning OR 1 teaspoon Taco Seasoning
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh black pepper
1/3 cup crushed cheesy or buttery crackers (such as Cheezits or Ritz)
One 10-ounce can condensed tomato soup, undiluted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a deep dish pie plate with vegetable cooking spray and set aside.
Over medium-high heat brown meat or veggie meat (with olive oil) and onion and peppers. Drain if using beef. Stir in oregano, Adobo, salt, black pepper, cracker crumbs, and soup. Pour into the greased pie plate. Set aside.


1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard powder
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (or any variety you like)

In a small bowl mix together the egg, milk, salt, mustard powder, Worcestershire sauce, and cheese. Pour over the burger mixture, spreading cheese to cover top completely. Bake for 30 minutes or until topping is set and golden. Makes 10 servings.

    I recently read about TVP. I know you’ve said in the past that you sometimes eat nearly a vegetarian diet. I’m wondering if you’ve ever used TVP and if it would work in this lovely recipe?

    1. Linda says:

      It would…although when you rehydrate it use beef or vegetable broth or water and a beef/veggie bullion cube. The TVP really has not taste, to speak of, but it absorbs flavors very well.

      Probably 2 1/2-3 cups rehydrated TVP would be needed.

    Oh Linda…this is one of my favorites! My 18-year old picky eater loves this, too! I use ground turkey and extra sharp white cheddar is to die for! I know what we are having for dinner tonight.

    I like cheese burgers and cheese burger pizzas and a cheese burger pie sounds great!

  8. Jodi says:

    Wow, this Cheeseburger Pie is wonderful! I made is for my father who hates anything but a plain broiled steak or hamburger patty and he said it was good and went back for seconds (an extremely high praise from him lol). This will be a repeat, love the flavors and how quick it is to put together!

    Hello! I am going to be making this tonight for dinner. Is it okay to use just a pyrex dish and make it more like a casserole then a deep pie dish?

    1. Linda says:

      Absolutely…that would work just fine!

  11. ItsMoirach says:

    Okay so YUM! I put a little SF Ketchup on the side and that was like heaven. My gf enjoyed it as well. She is a non-op and had 2 heaping portions of it hahaha!

    An hour later I enjoyed myself some SF pudding for dessert.

    The meal was so good I had to enjoy a dessert 🙂 We are defintitely going to play w/ the recipe a bit and get creative.

    By chance, where can you get BBQ sauce that is SF? I can’t find it at local stores

  12. Linda says:

    I’m so glad you loved it!!

    This one is really good…and I’ve found it in some of my grocery stores here. But you might have to order some online.

    There are a couple others called Bellycheer and Nature’s Hollow…they are available at different low carb stores on line, and both really great.

    thank you linda!

    I have to say that this recipe is so good that I’m now making it once a week! Cheeseburgers were the one food that I was really missing and with this I am finally satisfied. Also my family just adores it. With some pickles and a salad on the side it is the perfect meal!

      Ducky…you’re just a cooking fool!! I’m so glad you found new family favorites…does my heart good!!!
