Cheeseburger Pie: Low Carb + Easy (31 Days Delicious Recipes Day 19)

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?!

INCREDIBLE Low Carb Cheeseburger Pie

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.

Cheeseburger Pie ingredients & instructions

There is a video, ingredient list, and printable recipe card below.  Here’s the basic idea ->

You’ll season and cook ground meat in a cast iron skillet.  Drain extra oil.  Add egg/milk mixture to skillet.  Stir well.  Place skillet in preheated oven.  Cook at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.  Optional:  add shredded cheese as a topping and cook 10 more minutes.  Remove skillet and let cool 10 minutes.  Slice cheeseburger pie just like any other kind of pie and serve.  Enjoy!

Important:  Using a cast iron skillet sure makes it easy but these ingredients can also be poured into a pie pan or casserole dish and cooked the same.

      Thanks so much, Justine. Yes, I would love the crust bottom but taking it out helps lower those carbs AND makes it an easier/faster meal. The struggle is real. 😉
