Walking to the Oven for Some Cheeseburger Pie!

Well, as promised last Monday here is one of my most favorite recipe's in the world! Yes, I know it's actually Tuesday, but I claim a do-over for my Monday!  It did not follow the pre-approved plan one bit!   God bless Janet Fox for giving this recipe to my mom so many years ago!  LOVE CHEESEBURGER PIE!

Here we go, get your pencils out or your copy and paste buttons ready!

First,  you need to bake a pie crust.  I just happened to have one in the fridge, so POOF! in to the oven it goes!

Now, you brown a pound of hamburger.  Yep it's from our cows, and Yep, there's a bit more than a pound here.  You will find I am not always big on exact measurements, especially if it's something important, like, uhmmmm.... rum!

While the hamburger browned and de-fatted itself in my Pampered Chef micro steamer that we all love, I put the rest of the goodies in a big Pampered Chef mixing bowl. 


 Cheddar Cheese, Milk, and Eggs:

Milk, measured in liquid end of my PC measuring cup!  LOVE THAT THING!  And then, I put my four eggs in there, and whisked it all together with a little...you guessed it....PC mini whisker!   I should have sold this stuff I LOVE it so much.

 Italian Seasoning, adding the amount that goes along with the same principle as adding rum in a cake recipe!
 Pour all into your shell
 Bake 40-45 min. then take out and add....
 Pizza sauce!
 Back in the oven for ten then out again for the yummy cheese!

 DANG!!!!Ok, I forgot to turn the oven off because Little Bear was upstairs waiting for me to put her make up on for our last Halloween event, and I did not want her to turn herself in to the Bride of Frankenstein.  No real harm done, just really melty cheese!

 Mommy's peice of the pie after the trick-or treaters finally turned in for the night!  Ahhhhhh!  Comfort food!

Here's the recipe all in one place:

Cheeseburger Pie

1 pie crust, baked
1 lb. hamburger (or a bit more!), browned and de-greased
3/4 C. onion (TG doesn't like 'em so I left them out.  I LOVE onions!)
1 large can mushrooms
4 eggs, slightly beaten
1 C.  shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 C. milk
1 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
1/2 t. Italian seasoning ( I used "a bit" more than that!)
1 C. pizza sauce
1 C. shredded mozzarella cheese

Pour all ingredients except pizza sauce and mozz. cheese in a baked pie shell.  Bake for 40-45 minutes. at 350.
Take out, add pizza sauce over pie, and bake 10 minutes more.
Take out, cover top with mozzarella cheese and set back in oven to melt (TURN OVEN OFF!)
Remove when cheese is melted and serve!

Happy Hunk of Meat Monday!

  7. oh my lord, this looks incredible! i must try it asap! wow.

  8. This looks awesome! Thanks for linking up too!

  10. I made something like this once but it had dill pickle chips just under the top crust and sesame seeds sprinkled on top! I should dig that one out. The kids would love it!

  11. This looks super yummy. The best part is that I can make it low-carb by leaving off the crust.

  12. The recipe looks great and awesome cooks use awesome tool. Spotted several tools from the pampered chef. Use to be a consultant but traded my apron in when the grand babies started to arrive
