Pie for dinner! Easier than cooking cheeseburgers and pretty enough for company.

  • Crumble ground beef into a large skillet. Saute over medium heat 1 minute, then add onion and green pepper. Continue to saute until onion begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Mix in 1/2 cup tomato sauce, bread crumbs, and seasoning salt. Spoon mixture into pastry shell.

  • In a medium bowl, mix together cheese, egg, milk, Worcestershire sauce, and white pepper. Spread mixture over meat filling. Cover edges of crust with strips of aluminum foil.

  • Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 15 minutes, until topping is puffy and lightly browned. Allow to set 10 to 15 minutes before serving. Make garnish sauce by mixing together 1/2 cup tomato sauce and cocktail sauce. Garnish each slice of pie with a spoonful of sauce.

This is quick, easy and turns out perfectly every time. I make the following changes: decrease Worcestershire to 1/2 tsp & add 1/2 tsp dry mustard to the cheese topping; add 1/2 tsp oregano and substitute plain salt for the seasoned salt in the meat mixture. Leftovers reheat well. Add a salad and you're done. Read More

While I received strange looks from family and my unexpected drop-in guest when I told them what dinner would be the pie was eaten and proclaimed "pretty good". It smells and looks just like meatloaf except in a pie shell. I think this would be perfect for a play group lunch as it is VERY filling. Be warned however...if the name turns you off stay away.

VERY nice dinner alternative to cheeseburgers or meatloaf. The eggy layer with cheese really takes it to another level. I tried another Cheeseburger pie recipe here, and it was fine, but this was much yummier. I used pre-made puff pastry dough for the crust, and added a little extra pepper to spice things up a little. Rave reviews! Read More

This reminded me more of a deconstructed meatloaf than a Cheeseburger Pie. My hubby made this, so maybe he did something incorrect. I will make again to see if I get a better result. Read More

Husband loved the pie not big on the sauce though. I added 1/4 cup romano to the meat mixture was VERY good!! I will make this again! Read More

This recipe was really easy especially since I used a storebought premade pie shell! But it just wasn't as yummy as I thought it would be. My family wasn't a big fan of it either although my little 3 and 18 mo olds ate it just fine. But I won't be making it again. Read More

I thought this was wonderful. The only part I had a problem with was the topping. It overflowed. I had to bake the pie on a cookie sheet to catch the spillover. But the flavor deserves 5 stars! The worcestershire sauce added a great flavor to the topping. My husband & I finished the whole thing in one night:) My kids wouldn't touch it though. Read More
