Cheeseburger Pie

This one is a classic from my childhood. Mom always made it in a pie pan, but I love it so much that I calculated the volume of a pie pan and expanded the recipe to fit perfectly in a 9×13 pan. So it no longer looks like a pie but I’ll still call it that. This isn’t quite how Mom used to make it, but I think she’ll approve of my modifications.


  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/2 diced onion
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 1/4 cup Bisquick
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 4-5 strips of bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese


  • Grease or spray a 9/13 pan and preheat the oven to 450.
  • Cook ground beef over medium heat along with the onion.
  • Beat milk, Bisquick, eggs, salt and pepper until smooth
  • Pour the Bisquick mixture into a pan along with the meat, onion, and bacon.
  • Sprinkle with cheddar cheese
  • Bake about 30 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean
  • Serve with ketchup
