Impossible (Easy!) Cheeseburger Pie

Posted on
If you have some ground beef/onion browned ahead of time,….I think a very young cook could make this!

Below:  Instead of putting the 1/2 cup grated cheese IN the pie, I sprinkled white cheddar cheese (extra sharp by Cabot) on top just as soon as I removed it from the oven.  This way, if there is someone who does not want cheese on their portion, it can more easily be accomplished.

Yield:  Six ‘hamburger pie’ slices.

I’ve had this recipe for what seems like ‘forever’, and I think it came from the back of a Bisquick® mix.  In checking, I see this recipe is still ‘out there’ in the world of recipes.  With a tossed green salad, this makes for the start of a quickly put together meal.   I’ve already added canned/frozen corn to the hamburger/onion layer, and that was good, too.

If you don’t have Bisquick® on hand, there are many websites with information on making up a batch of your own.  For example, take your pick:


  • 1 lb. lean ground beef, browned and drained
  • 1 large onion (1 cup of chopped), fried with ground beef.
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 or 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup Original Bisquick® mix
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs


  • Heat panggangan to 400° F.  Spray 9-inch glass pie plate with cooking spray.
  • In 10-inch skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is browned; drain.  Stir in salt.
  •  Spread in pie plate.   Sprinkle evenly with cheese.*
  • In small bowl, stir remaining ingredients with fork or whisk until well blended. Pour over hamburger/cheese mixture in pie plate.
  • Bake about 25 minutes, or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.

Makes 6 servings.

*Alternate way:  Instead of putting the 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese over the hamburger/onion layer, I waited until it came out of the panggangan to put it (cheese) on top; then returned it to the panggangan for just a minute or two so it could melt.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
