  1. Tried this tonight. It was DELICIOUS!!! LOVED IT~~Definitely going into my Keeper file of favorite recipes. I even made my own pie crust for the first time and was so happy how it turned out. I LOVE all your recipes. Can’t wait to try more. Thanks for posting them.

  2. Making this now. But I used 13×9 dish, added more hamburger and omitted onion and BBQ sauce. Hoping it turns out ok since I forgot I needed to double ingredients seeing that I have a big family and used more beef for bigger pie. But wanted you to know someone else is looking at your recipes and trying them. :) And saved a few others to try later too. Thanks for sharing. :)

  3. would be wonderful if the author put up the nutrition panel as well as the recipe :-)

  4. Are you able to freeze this to use for once a month cooking?

  5. Just want to be sure I understand. There is not top pie crust – just the cheese, milk and egg combined and put on top? Looks delicious but I would have to omit a few ingredients that we don’t like – ie, mustard and onion.

  6. Just wondering…if I’m using a store bought frozen pie crust do I need to bake it first? Before filling and baking again? Or do I fill it and bake frozen all together? I’m a newbie to pie crusts so…better to ask than mess up dinner! Also, I’m making a variation by adding a packet of dry ranch seasoning to the beef mixture because I don’t have worscher sauce.

    • Oops posted too soon…I don’t have BBQ sauce either so I thought the ranch would add a nice flavor. Hoping it turns out! I just need to know what to do with the frozen crust!


    • You do not need to pre-bake the crust. :) I bet the ranch will add a great flavor! Enjoy and let us know how it works for you.

      • The ranch mix was great! I like that you can play with this recipe to make it work for you and your tastes. I was talking to a friend and I think next we will try to modify it to be a Mexican version…black beans, corn, spices…maybe some peppers…yum!

  7. I’m planning to make this over the weekend. I have the Panko bread crumbs but if you didn’t what do you suggest for a substitute ?

  8. What is the nutritional information for this dish?

  9. do i thaw the pie crust or use frozen?

  10. Hi! This looks amazing, but my fiancé is allergic to beef (I know, he doesn’t know what he’s missing!). Do you think this recipe would work with ground chicken or turkey instead? To make it fiancé-friendly? ;)

    • I haven’t tried it that way but I’m sure it would work and be delicious! I’d love to hear how it works for you!

    • Hey Natalie,
      We use ground turkey for everything pretty much and I just tried this wonderful recipe and it also works as well. Its a keeper and I will be making this for my family for now on. It is also so nice to try things new. Not the same boring stuff. Thank you Holly and I sure hope this helps Natalie. :)

  11. The picture looks like it has chopped up pickles in it. was this left out or picture off?

  12. Thanks for this recipe. I have been trying to figure out what to feed the Mr. on the weekends (Friday/Saturday). He does not like fast food and prefers that I cook. This is a great weekend meal idea and an on the go meal. I plan to make this meal this Saturday and I know he is going to LOVE it. Thanks again, and God Bless.

  13. We stumbled across this recipe a couple of months now and we absolutely LOVE it! We’ve probably made
    It once a week/2 weeks since we found it. The only thing we do not put in is onions (I won’t touch food if it has onions in it). This recipe is heavenly!!

  14. Made this tonight. Turned out great. The only changes that I would make would be to precook the bacon and to add more of the ketchup mustard and bbq sauce. The family loved it!!! Thank you!!!!

  15. My husband sounded skeptical/hesitant when I told him we were making cheeseburger pie for dinner, but then he ate the rest of mine that I couldn’t finish and had seconds. This was really good. We added some jalepeno slices to the ground beef mixture and a bit of garlic powder, plus extra black pepper. It’s an excellent recipe!

  16. I was working from home and took a break to start dinner. I just bought lean ground beef and wanted to do something different with it; found this recipe online and… WOW, this is a GREAT recipe!! My picky eater husband loved it too! I ended up making my pie crust from scratch because it was one thing I didn’t have on hand (I also didn’t have panko bread crumbs ~used regular breadcrumbs w/ a tsp. of water). Here is a website for a quick and yummy pie crust (used the food processor ‘quicker prep’ steps): I also put the assembled pie in the frig for a couple hours and then let it sit out for ½ hour prior to baking (only because I had to go back to work)… Thank you Holly for this wonderful recipe!!

  17. Came across this recipe earlier today and I made it tonight. Doubled the recipe and made 2 pies since a few of our kids were going to be here.
    Bad thing: Realized I had already used the 2 pie crusts I thought I had in the freezer.
    Great thing: Realized I had already used the 2 pie crusts I thought I had in the freezer!!! In place of them, I used one can of crescent rolls per pie and I am soooo happy I did!
    Everyone thought this recipe was ahhh-mazing! Other than using the crescent rolls in place of pie crust, I made it exactly as you posted. Even put tin foil around the edges of ‘crust’ the first 15 minutes and I’m happy I did or it would have been charred! Thank you for the wonderful recipe! I’m definitely going to be making this again and again along with trying out some of your other recipes. Have a wonderful day/night! :)

    • What a great substitute Mary! Thank you for sharing, you can’t be the only one who didn’t have pie crust handy! I’m definitely going to give that a try!

  18. This was so good!! Dad came back for 2 more servings. I added sliced mushrooms to the ground beef mixture. I had a 2lb pkg of ground beef. I doubled all but the cheese mixture. I made one pie and froze the remaining beef mixture. I will either make another pie or thought maybe making individual pies in muffin pans or mini tart pans and make the cheese mixture at that time. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

  19. This is a new family favorite!! I didn’t add the bread crumbs, Tonight I am making it with a gluten free crust.

  20. Made this, but added chopped pickles and finely chopped garlic…also didn’t use bbq sauce (not a fan), so I used an avocado ranch dressing instead…soooo good! Next time I think I’m going to add chopped jalapeno and make a bacon lattice! Thanks for the recipe!

  21. Why is deep dish pie crust not recommended?

  22. Hey Holly,

    I know your blog for quite a while now, thanks to pinterest,
    This week, i was able to try out the first recipe of yours – the cheeseburger pie.
    Well, I changed it a bit (I always do that – it depends on what I have at home), but I can’t tell you enough about the compliments I got. Every person who tried it wanted the recipe afterwards, no kidding.

    I am so happy to try all the other stuff I have already saved in my “Try-out”- file.
    So well, thanks. You’re doing a great job. Also the pictures are delightful to watch.


    PS. Sorry for any mistakes I made, I am not a native… Happy cooking everyone!

  23. Hi Holly, This pie looks great! with the hubby recovering for Cancer and our diets changing to accommodate him and what he can and cannot eat, I have been looking for some beef recipes that would appeal to his appetite and ability to eat. Thanks for all the great ideas, I may add some chopped pickles into this as well :)

  24. Sounds yummy, I must try!

  25. I plan on making this one night but making it vegetarian. I can’t wait!

  26. What. Size pie plate do I use?

  27. I am going to make this tonight. I can’t help but notice it looks like pickles are in he pie yet you omitted them from the recipe. Was this in error?

  28. Hi, I live in the uk and I’m always looking for mince beef recipes for my son who claims to dislike so many things like bolognese, shepherds pie etc. I’d really like to try this and I’ve bought some shortcrust pasty to use but it’s not baked yet. Do I need to bake the crust first before adding the filling? Thanks

  29. I used turkey and did not have to drain. Thanks and More Bacon….Thanks!

  30. This is a very good recipe….the first time I made it i use half cheddar and half mozzerella. It was very good. Now I am cooking one exact. Taste just like a bacon cheeze burger….

  31. Add some green chile or jalapeños for a little extra zip.

  32. I just wasn’t crazy about the flavor! I guess if I tried again I would def not put mustard or bar b que sauce!! But thanks for sharing. I like trying new things!!

  33. You are a great person and I hope that I can make the bacon cheeseburger pie as great as you can.

  34. My boyfriend is wanting me to make this for dinner, but I’m in need of suggestions for what to serve with it? Thanks!

  35. I’m making this tomorrow night. I was wondering if I put pickles in it how much and what kind?? Dill or what?

  36. Was a little dry could you add an egg to the meat/ bacon mixture?

    • I haven’t tried adding an egg to the mixture. If you are finding it dry you might like to add some extra sauce or even chopped mushrooms which have moisture.

  37. I have a picky eater and more enduring if the barbecue sauce or any of the spices are really strong tasting. Also if I wanted to make the filling in advance, would you store it in a separate container or do you think I could add it to the piecrust? It might make it to soggy…Thanks, it looks great!

  38. This is what’s for dinner tonight. It’s ready to go in the oven now.

  39. Holly the picture looks like it has little pieces of pickle chopped in. Did you add pickle? I think I might. This looks great.

  40. Hi, your picture looks like your pie has pickle in it? But there is no mentiom of pickle in you recipe?

  41. I made this pie for dinner tonight and it was a hit! Followed the recipe precisely except I did use a deep dish pie crust. All of the ingredients happened to fit perfectly. It was so delicious my 1 year old ate almost a whole slice to himself! Will definitely make again and again!

  42. I’ve made this a few times now, according to the recipe.
    The only thing I recommend is par bake the crust first, or bake lower and slower as it’s really easy to get a soggy bottom on this pie.
    We licked the platter clean. Thanks for the great recipe.

  43. I am anxious to try this.  However, the photo looks like there are pickles in it.  Pickles are not one of the ingredients listed. Since I always get extra pickles, I know they would be good either baked in the pie or chopped and scattered on top after it it baked.  

  44. I had fun making the pie. My family loved it and today I’m going to try mini pies in my muffin pan. I added pickles to the recipe, yum!

  45. This was tasty, but I found that there was too much filling for the pie crust (I bought tenderflake). I would have had enough for two pies. I did add pickles because I’ve ha bacon cheeseburger pizza with them and it was amazing. Overall a tasty, quick weeknight recipe. 

  46. My family loved this! I used sliced potatoes on the bottom in place of the pie crust. My husband said it was cheeseburger and fries :) Very good!

  50. I have made this several times now and my family (4 boys) love it! I followed the recipe exactly the first time but personally food it kind of sweet. Since then I have made it by increasing the ketchup and leaving out the barbecue sauce.

  51. I made this tonight for my wife and I. It was awesome. I added chopped pickles and then sprinkled some on top after it baked. This is a great dish and I will be making it again. Thanks for the cool recipe
