Cheeseburger Pie is an easy recipe that my whole family loves!

Lean ground beef and onions are combined with our favorite bacon cheeseburger toppings and spread into a flaky crust.  I add my favorite cheesy topping and bake until golden.

The results are an easy pie that is reminiscent of your favorite summer bbq meal!

How to Make Cheeseburger Pie

When summer arrives we’re always firing up the grill to make our favorite Jalapeño Cheddar Burgers serving them up with big bowls of Dill Pickle Pasta Salad!

Truly fewer things better than a great hamburger… except a bacon cheeseburger! This easy Cheeseburger Pie combines those same great flavors in a simple pie recipe.

Combining our fave flavors in an easy to make weeknight recipe is the best… loads of bacon, gooey cheese and lean beef packed into one casserole that everyone will rave about!

I like to keep this simple and quick so I pour the filling for this cheeseburger pie into a store bought pie crust (not deep dish).  If you have a homemade pie crust recipe you love, you can definitely use it in this recipe or get creative and make a crust with crescent rolls or even a Cheeseburger pie with a bisquick crust!

If you’re looking to keep this lower in carbs, you can skip the crust altogether… honestly this recipe is so versatile the options are endless!

I use lean ground beef in this recipe but you can certainly sub it for ground chicken or turkey if you prefer.

Once baked and bubbly, I let this hamburger pie cool for about 10 minutes and slice and serve.  I sometimes put out a fun plate of toppings for everyone to add to their serving… chopped dill pickles, sliced red onion and diced tomatoes to name a few.  We serve this with some Crispy Oven Fries and veggies and Ranch Dressing Dip for the perfect meal.

  1. This is one delicious looking pie. I almost got a heart-attack when I saw the words “bacon cheeseburger pie” written together – this is awesome!5 stars

  2. Made this last night and all three kids loved it! Thanks for sharing. I didn’t have enough BBQ sauce so subbed in steak sauce. Also added some American cheese slices for extra melty goodness. Will definitely make again.

  3. Pssst! Ignore my previous question if you wish.  Just read Linda’s comment where she increased the ketchup and skipped the bbq sauce! 

    Looking forward to trying this!


  4. This looks like something fun to fix for my monthly book club pot luck.

    Will it matter if I skip the BBQ sauce?  That is something I seldom use.  Kind of hate to buy the jar for 3 tablespoons. 


  5. I just wanted to tell you that I LOVE THIS RECIPE! It is on repeat in our home. All of us love it, it is super simple and quick to prepare, and tastes delicious! Diced dill pickles are a great topping. Thank you! I look forward to trying your other recipes.5 stars

    1. I haven’t tried it Brandy. You may want to bake it longer and only uncover the crust for the last 15 minutes. Let us know how it works if you double it.

    2. I’ve used deep dish crusts and tripled the recipe – it works perfectly. Same cooking time – everything is already cooked so all you’re really doing is cooking the crust and melting the cheese.

  6. I mixed it half and half with ground beef and ground moose. It was EXCELLENT! We’ll be making it again and again5 stars

  7. WOW!!!  AMAZING recipe & since it’s just me & my foodie hubby, there were leftovers for a few days!!  It reheats VERY WELL!!!  Some dishes actually reheat better than the original, because the flavors have more time to mix…  THIS IS DEF ONE!!!  It’s awesome right out of the oven, but it gets better with age!!
    WHEN (not if) I make this again, I will make a few changes…  I’ll def fry the bacon up first, then the burger onion mix, because we both prefer crunchy bacon & although completely cooked in the end, the bacon was the opposite of crunchy…  (some people prefer that & im not trying to judge…) also, I think a bit of garlic salt/powder would be a GREAT addition to th mixture!! (Again, we LOVE garlic…  not for everyone…)5 stars

  8. 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 recipe5 stars

  9. 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.5 stars

  10. I made this recipe the other day for dinner me and my family loved it, tasted so delicious. I used turkey meat instead it came out so good.5 stars

  11. 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!4 stars

  12. 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. 

  13. 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!3 stars

  14. 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.  

    1. There are no pickles in the photo, they might be onions that you’re seeing. Either way, pickles would be awesome in this recipe!

  15. 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.

  16. 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!

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

    1. There is no pickle in the recipe (although that would be a delicious addition). The bits you see in the photo might be onions. :)
