Low Carb Cheeseburger Pie is a unique but quick dish that’s full of flavor. This old Americana classic from the 1950s incorporates a pie crust bottom and gooey goodness on top. I’m omitting the pie crust for as a low carb version. This dish is heaven coming out of the oven and into your mouth. That’s a promise! It just so happens to be the 19th recipe in our 31 Days of Delicious Easy Recipes for Busy Wives this month. Here’s the full list for the 31 Days of Meals). Let’s get to it, shall we?!
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 quick and easy, using one skillet and just a few simple ingredients. One recipe after another that I found was just too complicated!
The amazing aroma and flavor that comes from the combination are extraordinary. We had a hard time stopping with just one slice at a time! If you want the traditional version with the carbs, the only change to the recipe below is to add a premade pie crust to the bottom of a pie plate, add the ingredients, and bake as directed.
