How to Make Impossible Cheeseburger Pie

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
  • Oil a pie plate, 9-inches. Set aside
  • In a large saucepan, 12 inches, pour oil, onion, and bacon bits. Over medium heat stir and cook until the onions are soft and translucent.
  • Add the ground beef, using a wooden spoon, and break it into pieces.
  • Sprinkle the salt, ground pepper, paprika, and onion powder. Cook over medium heat until the meat is no longer pink.
  • Add the ketchup and mustard. Mix to combine. 

  • Sprinkle half the shredded cheese over the meat mixture and mix so the cheese can melt throughout the meat. 

  • Pour half the meat mixture into your prepared pie plate
  • *THIS STEP IS OPTIONAL BUT SO GOOD* Take your American cheese slice and cut or tear them in quarters. Place them over the meat in the pie dish.

  • Pour the remaining meat mixture into the pie plate.
  • Sprinkle the remaining shredded cheese over the meat. Set aside

  • In a medium mixing bowl combine the Bisquick, milk, and eggs. Whisk until all ingredients are combined.

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • Give it a Mexican twist by using seasoned ground beef!
  • Add pieces of bacon to the ground beef as it cooks to make bacon cheeseburger pie. 
  • You can double the recipe and bake it in a 13×9 pan. You will need to increase the cooking time for about 5-10 more minutes.

Impossible Cheeseburger Pie
Can you freeze Cheeseburger pie?

Yes! This recipe freezes incredibly well. Cook as directed and let it completely cool. Once cooled wrap in foil and place in the freezer. It is best if you cook your cheeseburger pie in a freezer-safe container so you don’t have to transfer it to one. This will keep for up to 3 months. 

When you are ready to enjoy it, you may cook it frozen. Just keep covered with aluminum foil. 

You may also thaw it in the fridge overnight and heat it back up in the microwave or oven if you prefer. 

Why do I put the sliced cheese in between 2 layers of meat? 

You will want to put the cheese in between the two layers of meat because when you put the sliced cheese on top of the meat mixture it floats when adding the Bisquick and can burn. Putting in between the layers, it melts, making it more like a cheeseburger.
