Thank you all so much for your kind comments on my post earlier this week. I really appreciate everyone who took the time to leave a comment and encourage me. It is nice to know that I am not the only one struggling to balance it all. And thank you all for understanding as I adjust my schedule and figure out how to make it all work.
Now on to easy cheeseburger pie.
This cheeseburger pie is one of those quick and easy recipes that I love. It is the same basic idea as my Pop Up Pizza Pie, my Pop Up Taco Pie, and my Chili Pie.
They are all the same basic batter on top with a different filling underneath. If you are gluten free be sure to check out my gluten free version. The gluten free batter will work on any of them.
I love this basic recipe because it is easy to make and my kids love it. Every version I have made quickly becomes a favorite.
The basic recipe is one of those tried and true recipes that I have been making lately, but have changed up so that my family does not feel like I am making the same meal over and over.
Each version is very similar and yet very different. By tweaking a few simple things and ingredients I have taken a simple recipe and made it work in different ways.
This cheeseburger version is one I came up with a few months ago. It is basically the flavors of a cheeseburger, but in a simple casserole type dish. Easy and delicious!

I am from South Africa and I have made the same topping over different types of meat dishes, although I must say that grounde beef (mince) is my favourite. My family (6 kids and my mom and myself) absolutely love it. Have you tried the topping with sweetcorn/creamed corn mixed into the topping before baking and topped with some raw onion slices? I have seen a few of your recipes from time to time and they are always a joy to eat. Please don’t stop your great work. Have a great day 🙂
I am so glad that you enjoy this recipe. The corn version sounds great. Thanks for sharing it.
