What's Cookin'? Cheeseburger Pie Recipe

Total credit for this recipe goes to the Trim Healthy Mama book!  For many reason, I truly appreciate this book, and I LOVE many of the recipes.  This meal is full of wonderful, satisfying FAT.  That's right.  FAT.  It does a body good. 

I should explain.  Fat and carbohydrates are both important to your body.  The problem is that they don't play nicely together -- the body rarely has the chance to burn off both fuel sources.  But weight loss (and health!) occur rather effortlessly when you eat single fuel meals -- fat OR carbohydrates.  My new blog, www.nourishedskillets.com, will soon be sharing many posts explaining this concept and why it's about so much more than just the numbers on the scale.  This isn't a fad or the latest craze.  As an RN, I stand behind the science and physiology, and I HIGHLY recommend the book.  The recipe?  Oh yeah ...

Basically, this tastes exactly like a cheeseburger without the bun; hence the name "Cheeseburger Pie".  I've made other recipes by this name.  None of them actually tasted good.  This one DOES. 


Brown 2 lbs of ground beef (feel free to double for a crowd).

Add 3 tsp onion powder and 1 tsp salt (or cheat and use 1 packet onion soup mix).

Place beef mixture into a casserole dish and stir in 6 oz. grated cheese.

Layer any "cheeseburger toppings", i.e. onions, pickles, canned or fresh diced tomatoes, jalepenos.

In another bowl, beat 2 eggs, 1/2 cup mayo, 1/2 cup heavy cream (I used whole milk), sea salt, and pepper.

Pour mixture over everything and top with another 6 oz. cheese.

Bake at 350 for 35 minutes.

Serve with mustard and ketchup, and enjoy!


*I was not paid to endorse this book.  Yes, I really love the book that much.  Pin It!
