How to Make Homemade Bisquick Mix

Bisquick makes this recipe a million times easier. But if you don’t have Bisquick in your pantry already, you can easily make it from other pantry staples. 

Combine the following ingredients – 

½ cup flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon sugar

Next, slowly work in 2 teaspoons of cold butter using a fork or a pastry cutter. Mix until it has a breadcrumb-like consistency. Then follow the Cheeseburger Pie recipe as normal.

Recipe Variations

There are a few fun variations to this Cheeseburger Pie recipe! 

If you want it a little leaner, use ground chicken or turkey instead of the beef.

Some recipes also add in ketchup, mustard, or dill pickle relish to really emulate an awesome cheeseburger.

You can always add in your favorite frozen veggies or chopped fresh tomatoes to the ground beef, too. 

For a Mexican-inspired pie, add about 3 tablespoons of taco seasoning to the beef mixture. Top with sour cream, avocados, or salsa, and enjoy the fiesta!

Take a trip to Italy by adding 2 teaspoons of Italian seasoning to the beef. Then switch out the cheddar for mozzarella.

Serve with some marinara sauce. I don’t know about you, but my mouth is watering just thinking about it.

Use ground chicken instead of beef and add in a half a packet of ranch seasoning mix and ¼ cup of your favorite buffalo sauce. This one is for a sports event or backyard party! 

Tips & Tricks

  • Cheeseburger Pie can be made ahead of time. Just make it as normal, store it covered in the fridge, and add 5-8 minutes onto the bake time if it’s coming straight from the fridge.
  • Bisquick comes in a Gluten-Free option, so you can enjoy Cheeseburger Pie whether you eat Gluten or not!
  • Serve Cheeseburger Pie with a fresh salad on the side. I love to make a creamy Caesar salad to balance the meal. 
  • Other yummy things to serve it with are roasted veggies (I love Brussels sprouts), french fries or potato wedges, or a nice fruit salad!
  • Make it a bacon cheeseburger pie by adding in some bacon when browning the beef. 
  • Freeze any leftovers, or the whole casserole, for a quick dinner later on. Cheeseburger Pie will last in the freezer for up to 3 months.
  • You can bake your pie in a 9-inch deep-dish pan if you prefer that over a round pie pan.
  • Grate your own cheese! It melts a lot better than the pre-shredded types.
