Ground Beef Pot Pie Casserole Recipe

A rich and creamy ground beef pot pie with plenty of meat, carrots, peas and green beans covered with a layer of Red Lobster Biscuit Mix is some of our best comfort food.

Also known as a Ground Beef Cobbler, there is no stirring necessary in this recipe to make this easy family dinner.

We love a ground beef casserole from our Cheesy Beef and Hashbrown Casserole to our Hamburger Cabbage Casserole.

This Ground Beef Pot Pie recipe is typically made in a 9 x 13″ dish but can but cut in half to fit in a pie plate.

Use Bisquick or add even more cheddar flavor with a box of Red Lobster Biscuit Mix. If you want a quick homemade pie topping use the dry ingredients in our Cheddar Bay Biscuits.

Why This Hamburger Pot Pie Recipe Works

  • A short cut that makes this hamburger pot pie special and so easy is using a box of Cheddar Bay Biscuit mix just like we do in our Chicken Cobbler.
  • This creates a wonderful blend of protein, vegetables and carbs in a single meal.
  • Serve this easy ground beef casserole with a simple green salad for a dinner the whole family enjoys.
  • Not needing to stir saves time and makes a stress free recipe.

Ingredients Needed

  • Ground Beef – lean beef, cooked, crumbled and drained.
  • Mixed Vegetables – a bag of frozen mixed carrots, peas, corn and green beans.
  • Cream of Onion Soup – cream of mushroom soup or cream of celery works well if you enjoy that flavor profile.
  • Beef Broth – Better than bouillon takes less space in the kitchen and has a richer taste.
  • Bisquick or Red Lobster Biscuit Mix – A flour based mixture that creates the pot pie “crust”.
  • Milk – Helps activate the crust and make the casserole a little richer.
  • Butter – Slices arranged over top of the baking mix for extra flavor.
Ingredients to make ground beef pot pie are butter, biscuit mix, garlic powder, milk, ground beef, mixed vegetables, cream of onion soup, pepper and beef broth on a wooden counter top.

Another simple family meal that people enjoy is this Vegetable Pasta Bake. We love having a variety of casseroles in the dinner rotation.

Recipe Tips

  • Use anywhere from 1 to 2 pounds of ground beef to adjust how meaty the casserole turns out.
  • Don’t forget to include the separate packet of seasoning mix in with the flour.
  • Cream of mushroom and cream of celery soup make great substitutes to the cream of onion soup which is a more neutral flavor.
  • If using Bisquick feel free to add a layer of shredded cheddar cheese to the casserole and seasoned salt or other generous seasonings to the ground beef.
