Cheeseburger Pie

This is another one of our Mom’s recipes. It is one of those feel-good country dinner meals that my family LOVES. Dinner pies are a great meal for when you just don’t have a whole lot of time to dedicate to dinner! It is cheap, easy, and uses ingredients you probably always have on hand!

Taco Pie Variation

For a little variation — just add a little taco seasoning to the ground beef and top with sour cream and salsa and you have a whole new meal.. TACO PIE! I honestly don’t know which one I like better. Try them both and decide for yourself (even though I am willing to bet you will like it both ways too)!

What To Serve With Cheeseburger Pie

It’s always tricky trying to find the right side dish to go along with casseroles or dishes like Cheeseburger Pie since many view it as a “one dish meal” (which is totally fine). However, if you are looking to add a little more to your dinner, you can try it with:

Tips for Making Cheeseburger Pie

  • Add shredded carrot or zucchini in with the ground beef/onion mixture to add some extra veggies (the kids won’t suspect a thing and it doesn’t alter the taste at all!)
  • Prepare up to 24 hours ahead of time. Just cover and refrigerate before baking. When ready to bake, pull out of the fridge and just bake it about 5 minutes longer than the original recipe
  • Top with sautéed onions or mushrooms before serving to kick it up a notch. You can even make it like a cheeseburger and add lettuce, tomato, and even pickles!
  • Our kids’ (and our dad’s) favorite thing to put on cheeseburger pie is ketchup. Give it a try!

  1. This is a great recipe. Tonight I decided to double it and cook in a 9×13 glass dish. I overcooked it a bit! 45 minutes at 400 was too long but we’ll still eat it. Next time I’ll cook it at 375 for 40 minutes and check it.

  2. 5 stars
    This is everything my family wants in a dinner and more! So much easier than firing up the grill. Love it for a quick weeknight fix! Thank you!

  3. What if you dont want to use a pie. plate and you want to make a bigger batch if you want to use a 9×13.would you double or triple it. Thank You

    1. If you are using a 9×13 I would just double the recipe. You could probably get away with tripling it but it would be quite thick. Hope this helps!

  4. Let me start off by saying I love your website!! I made your crock pot pork chops Tuesday night and the Cheeseburger pie Wednesday night! My husband asked me to make the taco pie as well because he loved it! I did season the ground beef with garlic powder and Lawry’s seasoning salt and pepper much like I would home made burgers and it was excellent. In fact, we packed the left overs for lunch today 🙂 Thank you so much.

  5. I tried this recipe because it sounded so easy and it was delicious! My three picky eaters gobbled it up with NO complaints! That never happens! Thank you!

  6. Both of these Pie recipes sound so good, and easy! Im putting them on my menu ( and grocery ) list! =)
