Delicious Cheeseburger Pie
Everyone loves my cheeseburger pie. It's so easy, and it's great comfort food. What I am getting ready to tell you next might sound crazy in light of this decadent sounding recipe, but keep an open mind. In October of 2013, my family and I began a journey toward better long-term health. How did we do this? We have started eating mostly organic food. We use a service in the Charleston, South Carolina area called Healthy Home Foods. We get our meats, veggies, and fruits, and a few dry items from them. We still buy our cheese at the grocery store, but we use Horizon Dairy cheeses which are hormone-free and steroid-free. Now, I did say mostly organic, not all. It would be difficult to go totally organic in our society, but it's possible to cut out a lot of the GMOs, pesticides, and other junk we consume.
This just happens to be a recipe that started out with me following the back of a box when my husband and I got married. Over the years, I have made my own changes here and there. Here in the south, we take food to people who are sick, just moved in, just had a baby or just had a death in the family. This is one recipe that has fed many such families.
Keep in mind that while Bisquick is not organic, you can choose the gluten free formula that cuts out the genetically modified wheat. This is a huge help to people like me, who have become sensitive in some way to some genetically modified organisms, like wheat.
Whether you choose gluten free batter or original batter, this is a recipe that can be made with other batter mixes from the health food store with adjustments according to the box.
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: about 45 minutes
- 1/2 cup Bisquick Mix (regular or gluten free)
- 2 eggs

- salt & pepper

- garlic powder
- NOTE: If using gluten free Bisquick, the amount of some ingredients will change...3 eggs, 1 cup milk, and half cup mix)
- Brown your ground beef in a pan, seasoning with salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder.
- Using a non-stick casserole dish, spread your browned meat on the bottom.
- Mix up your Bisquick, eggs and milk in a separate bowl and set aside.
- Spread at least half of the cheese liberally across the meat in the casserole dish.
- Pour on the batter.
- Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
- Place in a preheated oven (400 degrees) for 25 minutes.
- You can top with any of your favorite cheeseburger add-ons such as pickles, lettuce and tomato, or bacon!
- Don't burn your mouth!
This is the gluten free version that I personally can use. But if purchasing, please take care to use the alternate instructions at the end of my recipe.
Pamela's is currently working toward a Non-GMO certification. This means that not only is it gluten free, you can bet it's free of genetically modified ingredients otherwise. That's great news! Be sure to use batter instructions on the package and not the batter instructions in my recipe.
Good old-fashioned regular Bisquick. My recipe applies to this one.
