Bacon Cheeseburger Pie Recipe

Our family loves hamburger and easy ground beef recipes, we also love cheese, bacon and pies.  My toddler may have eaten almost as much as I did the first time I made this recipe.  She was going nuts eating cheeseburger PIE.  She kept asking for “More PIE please.”  This is the definition of mealtime success for me!

We’re on day four of the back to school time routine.  This routine totally changes our little people.  Our waking times, our bedtimes, the necessity to eat dinner without putting it off for another hour.  Life is getting more rigid again.  When the effort and difficulty increase in one area another area has to get easier.  For us meals have to get easier while still providing a variety of food groups.

Crock Pot Sloppy Joes has been a traditional school year recipe and we love all of the easy recipes using ground beef that we can find!

Cheeseburger Pie has meat for protein, cheese for calcium, the bread crumbs have carbohydrates or energy, vegetables top each piece for vitamins and minerals and bacon for flavor! Serve with Air Fryer Baby Potatoes or Air Fryer Broccoli for a complete meal!

This recipe was adapted from a recipe my mom has had for years and the only regret is that I didn’t make this sooner in life!

Cheeseburger Pie Without Bisquick

Our farming family raises beef cattle, so we always have plenty of ground beef in the freezer.  We always enjoy a classic hamburger and this Cheeseburger Pie with Pie Crust takes a classic meal to a whole new level of enjoyment!  Cheeseburger Pie is one of our favorite easy meals with ground beef that tastes great all year around. We love this version that is made without bisquick.

I think this hearty dish that is more palatable and easier to eat than a loaded cheeseburger.  Meat mixed with sauce and bread crumbs is easier for me to eat and more enjoyable, so that’s another reason I love this recipe!  The sauce helps keep the hamburger really moist which is also a plus.  The bread crumbs and tomato sauce almost taste a meatball in a pie crust.

Topped off with a think layer of cheese and bacon make a perfect blend of flavors for a family-friendly meal.  We like to serve lettuce, tomato, and pickles on the side.  Some of us like a lot of salad with our cheeseburger pie and others in our family prefer to eat smaller portions similar to what would actually be served on a cheeseburger.

Tips for Making Bacon Cheeseburger Pie

  • Store boughten refrigerated pie crust or homemade pie crust both work well
  • Fold edges of pie crust down so they don’t stick up above the pan, this will help prevent excessive browning
  • If edges of crust are browning too quickly cover with foil
  • We prefer using bacon bits, but chopped pieces of bacon would also work well
  • Freshly shredded cheese is preferred for melting better, but I often purchase shredded cheese and it tastes great too
  • Top with any sauces and vegetables that you enjoy

  3. Mary Giletto says:

    Can I top this with another pie crust?

    1. Jennifer @ Plowing Through Life says:

      Hey There! I’m very intrigued with this idea. I have not tested topping with another pie crust, but like the idea. I assume it would definitely increase cooking time if adding another crust. Please let me know how it turns out if you give it a try 🙂

  4. Can I substitute ground chicken. And use pasteurized cheese

    1. Jennifer @ Plowing Through Life says:

      Hey There! I haven’t tested that variation, but I imagine there are a lot of great ways to put a spin on this recipe. Please let me know how it works if you give it a try. Thanks 🙂

  5. Store bought. Boughten is not a word.
