Cheeseburger Pie

Main Image
I love the flavor of beef and cheese—they are just so satisfying. Here I’ve taken those flavors and turned them into a crustless, “quich-y” dish, using a few brioche bread cubes to replace a big old burger bun. You might want to add tomatoes, or even sundried tomatoes, to your plate when serving to get even more cheeseburger-y taste.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: About 20 minutes
Serves: 4

Cheeseburger Pie1 pound Laura’s 96% Lean Ground Sirloin

1/2 cup onion, chopped

8 ounces sliced mushrooms

2 strips turkey bacon, cooked and crumbled

1/4 cup chopped parsley

2 eggs

1 cup skim milk

1 1/2 brioche rolls, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

3 slices reduced-fat American cheese, cut into triangles.

1. Heat oven to 350F. In a large non-stick skillet or a well-seasoned black cast-iron skillet, start browning the ground beef. Stir in the onion and the mushrooms and continue cooking until beef is no longer pink and onions and mushrooms are softened, about 7 minutes total. Stir in bacon and parsley.

2. , place beef mixture into a baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Spread bread cubes over the meat. Beat eggs with milk and pour egg mixture over bread and meat. Cook 20 minutes, or until egg is set. Top with cheese slices and put back into oven until melted. Let sit for about 5 minutes before serving.

    "2011 challenge box" comment - We're sorry to hear that the 2011 Challenge box is blocking part of the screen. We're working on a new version of the website, and those kind of things will be fixed. For now, have you tried looking at it in different browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox...)? Sometimes that helps.

    "Meals for diabetics" comment - A category of diabetic friendly meals is a great idea! We'll definitely look into this!

    Thanks again!

    It would be wonderful if you could have more meals, or at least a category for diabetics. I have Type 2 and am watching myself very closely and doing wonderful, but I need more recipes - something that my husband will like as well.

    I have used some of your recipes and they are very delicious. I always try to purchase your hamburger at Kroger's whenever possible too.

    Thank you for all your wonderful recipes.
