Always thinking of different things I can do with what I have, I came up with this pie. You can change it up to your liking by changing the cheese or omitting onions. I have also used both cheddar and mozzarella. Season to your taste as well.

Ingredients For cheeseburger pie

  • 1
    frozen pie shell (9 in) baked
  • 1 lb
    hamburger meat (browned)
  • 1/2 jar
    spaghetti sauce
  • 1
    grated cheese (mild cheddar)
  • 1 sm
    onion (chopped)

How To Make cheeseburger pie

  • 1
    Place your pie shell in preheated 350 oven to lightly brown (prick holes with a fork across the bottom of the frozen pie shell before browning to prevent bubbles). Once this is done set it to the side. I like Marie Calendars pie shell

    Brown your pound of hamburger meat, adding chopped onion, cooking until the onions are softened, drain well. I added onion powder, garlic powder, oregano, salt and pepper.
  • 3
    Grate your block of cheddar (or any other cheese of your liking). Cheese that you grate yourself always works best because it melts so nicely. I throw in a small handful of cheese into my meat mixture stirring well and then one half the can of spaghetti sauce. I’ve added black olives too.

    Once this is all stirred to combine, add a small handful of your shredded cheese to the bottom of your pie shell then dump your meat on top of that spreading level and cover the top with the remainder of your cheese. Covering well. I use LOTS of cheese!

    Place this in your preheated oven for approximately 20-30 minutes. Ovens vary so you'll just need to keep an eye on it. Remove once the cheese and edges are browned up well.
