Bacon cheeseburger pie


Oh my, Bacon Cheeseburger Pie is now in my life and it's left me wondering where it's been all these years. At first, I was skeptical of this idea... But, you see, since I'm trying to work my way through 25 Pies in 2015 (not going to make it to 25, folks) and found myself with a block of Yancey's Fancy Grilled Bacon Cheeseburger Cheese, I had to give it a go! I first saw a recipe for a cheeseburger pie here and have been thinking on this idea for a while now..... We loved it! I mean, we truly could not get enough of this tasty pie when we had it for dinner and I totally looked forward to my lunch leftovers the next day. It tasted a lot like a cheeseburger, especially with the dill pickles on the side. Don't forget the pickles, they are very important! My husband kinda swooned over this pie a bit.

I think next time I will serve it with a salad of iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and Thousand Island dressing to keep the burger feel going. This recipe will serve about 4 people (or more especially with a nice salad, or less if you love it as much as us). I'll warn you right now - it's addictively delicious! 


Bacon cheeseburger pie
1 single pie crust (olive oil or lard/butter or store-bought)
1 lb. ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
3 tablespoons ketchup
2 teaspoons yellow mustard
1 teaspoon dried parsley, plus more for garnish
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
1 large egg
2 cups shredded Yancey's Fancy Grilled Bacon Cheeseburger cheese*
1/4 cup milk
Sliced or chopped dill pickles, for serving

Prepare your pie crust and fit it to a 9-inch pie pan. Refrigerate until the filling is ready.

In a large skillet, cook the ground beef and onion until the beef is cooked through. Drain well and return to the skillet (leave heat off). Stir in the onion powder through bread crumbs until well-combined.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Evenly spread the ground beef mixture into the pie crust.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg, cheese, and milk until combined. Evenly spread over the ground beef.

Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce the heat to 350 degrees and bake until the crust is golden and the cheese topping is golden and cooked through, about 35 minutes.

Let cool for about 5 minutes before slicing. Garnish with a sprinkle of dried parsley and serve with the dill pickles.

*If you can't find this specific cheese, you can add a few strips of cooked crumbled bacon to the ground beef mixture and use your favorite cheddar cheese instead.
