1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon burger seasoning, or a steak seasoning blend
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup plain fine breadcrumbs
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons ketchup
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
6 slices dill pickles, chopped, optional
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar jack cheese, divided
1 (9-inch) unbaked pie shell
Fresh tomatoes, sliced, chopped, optional
6 to 8 cooked pieces bacon, optional
Gather the ingredients.
Preheat oven to 375 F. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Crumble ground beef into skillet and add chopped onion.
Cook until onion is translucent and ground beef is no longer pink, stirring constantly. Drain off excess fat.
To beef and onion mixture, add minced garlic, along with burger seasoning or steak seasoning blend, salt, pepper, and breadcrumbs. Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly.
In a medium bowl, whisk eggs with mustard, ketchup, and Worcestershire sauce.
Stir in chopped dill pickle slices, if using.
Stir egg mixture into cooled ground beef mixture.
Add about 1/2 cup of the cheese and stir to blend.
Pack meat and cheese mixture into pie shell and bake for 30 minutes.
Top with sliced tomatoes and bacon, if using, and then top with remaining shredded cheese.
Bake cheeseburger pie for 5 to 10 minutes longer, or until cheese topping has melted and crust has browned.
- If you use seasoned breadcrumbs, we recommend reducing the salt to 1/4 teaspoon so that the salt flavor is not too much.
- For a lighter version, make the pie with ground turkey thighs.
- The recipe calls for cheddar jack cheese, but feel free to use American cheese, cheddar, or a blend of cheddar and mozzarella.
- Feel free to add some mushrooms to this dish.
