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. I am using a Pillsbury frozen crust. I am just concerned that the crust will come soggy if baked frozen. Also, is there a way that I can make this ahead of time and just reheat for company?

    1. If your pie crust is frozen, I would let it defrost about 10-15 minutes before filling. Other readers have also had great results reheating this dish, or freezing and reheating leftovers for later! I would love to hear how it turns out for you, Dolores.

  2. This was such a fantastic recipe. I did par bake the bacon first. And I would say either less of barbecue sauce, or omit it. It made it a little on the sweet side. But it’s all opinion of taste.4 stars

  3. This is one of those rare recipes that is just perfect the way it is. Don’t change a thing with this and it comes out perfect every time.

    My family gobbles this up every time I make it and it never disappoints. I have made it with a homemade pie crust as well as a store bought one and it doesn’t seem to make much of a difference.

    It’s easy to make and fast to the table. Thank you for sharing this.5 stars
