My goal as an amateur grain free chef is to create meals that don’t taste like they’re grain free and can be enjoyed without guilt! I’ve made cheeseburger pie for my husband and friends many times. Each time it’s served, it’s admired first for its appearance and then for its taste!
This recipe is an adaptation of a dish a friend’s mother used to make for us when we were young girls. All we needed was cheeseburger pie, movies, the remote, and life was pretty good.
Eating a grain free diet means lots of veggies, and sometimes, not a lot of fun. But every once in a while, we need comfort food! The ooey, gooey, bubbly, creamy taste of cheese is something that can’t be beat. This recipe is a grain free version of the amazing gooey goodness my friend’s mom made years ago, and goes together in less than an hour from start to finish. If you’re looking to save time, the ground beef can be cooked, frozen, and thawed when needed.
1lb ground beef/turkey
1c shredded cheddar cheese
1c my grain free flour blend A
1/2 onion chopped
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup mustard
1 cup milk
1tsp baking powder
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Sauté onion and ground beef until no longer pink. Transfer to a deep pie plate or casserole, stir in condiments, and 1/2 cup cheese. In a small mixing bowl mix flour and baking powder. Scramble eggs and milk and mix into dry ingredients. Mix well and pour on top of ground beef. Top with remaining cheese. Bake 30-35 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned.
