This easy and Low Carb Cheeseburger Pie is a quick dish that’s full of flavor. This old Americana classic typically is a cheeseburger skillet type of dish (a Bisquick cheeseburger pie 9×13 style with a crust). A hearty but lighter version that I created that the family loves is a low carb cheeseburger skillet without Bisquick or ANY crust. Trust me when I say that this low carb cheeseburger pie is heaven coming out of the oven and into your mouth because there’s a secret sauce in this bacon cheeseburger pie that’ll knock your socks off.
Low Carb Cheeseburger Pie
This yummy dish was huge in 1950s households until a more famous “pie” came along and stole the spotlight – the pizza. This cheeseburger pie recipe is one of my faves because it’s one of those quick low carb meals that uses only one skillet and just a few simple ingredients. This easy low carb cheeseburger pie just so happens to be the 19th in our 31 Days of Delicious Easy Recipes series and this easy dinner idea can be a gluten free cheeseburger pie and dairy free too!
With this quick and easy meal, we have a hard time stopping with just one slice at a time! Since I shot the original easy cheeseburger pie video below, I started adding bacon bits to make it bacon cheeseburger pie but you’ll find the bacon optional on the printable recipe card below.
