Cheeseburger Pie Recipe
This Cheeseburger Pie is bound to be your family's new favorite dinner. This crowd-pleasing recipe has all the taste of a burger packed into a savory pie format. It starts with an easy-to-make shredded potato pie crust, layered with seasoned beef and a cheese sauce that is made healthy with a hidden veggie, and then all baked in the oven. Serve it with all of your family's favorite burger toppings for a crave-worthy dinner.
How to Make It
This recipe can definitely be put into the "project" category, in the sense that there are three different components to making this Cheeseburger Pie. Essentially, you'll need to:
- Bake the Potato Pie Crust
- Cook the cheeseburger filling
- Prepare the butternut squash cheese topping
- And finally assemble and bake the whole pie!
Once is Nice, but Twice is Better
Since there are a few components to making this recipe, this is the type of pie where it totally makes sense to double the recipe and make one pie for now, and one for later. The pie can be made and assembled, but left without the final bake, and then fully frozen.
Additionally, if you are looking to serve more than 4 people, you can either double the recipe (and make it in a 9x9 inch baking dish) or even triple the recipe (and make in a 9x13 inch baking dish).
What to Serve with Cheeseburger Pie
There is no doubt, this pie could be good served all on it's own. However, it's all about the toppings with this one! Go nuts and think about what you would typically serve on a cheeseburger! Some options for serving are:
- Crispy Bacon
- Thin Sliced Onion
- Hot Sauce
This pie can be made ahead of time, and either refrigerated for a brief time, or frozen for a rainy day down the road. To make it from frozen, you'll want to defrost it overnight in the refrigerator. Once it's defrosted, you'll bake as directed but for a longer length of time, until the cheese is bubbling and the middle is hot, about 30-40 minutes.
To reheat leftovers, bake in the oven or toaster oven until heated through and the potatoes are crispy on the edges again.
