Roadside Diner Cheeseburger Pie

'Roadside Diner Cheeseburger Pie'
Source: Noble Pig


1 refrigerated pie crust (or make your own or use a frozen deep-dish pie shell)
3/4 lb. ground beef
2 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 cup dill pickle relish
1/2 cup crumbled cooked bacon
5 eggs
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup milk
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1-1/2 cups (6 oz.) shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese


1. Heat oven to 375. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in the tomatoes, onion, relish and bacon. Set aside.

2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, milk, mustard, pepper sauce, salt and pepper. Set aside. Unroll pie crust into a 9" deep-dish pie plate (make sure it's deep dish, otherwise, the mixture will not fit) and flute the edges. To make refrigerated pie crust fit into a deep-dish plate, roll it out a little bit more with a rolling pin. You can make your own pie crust or purchase frozen deep dish pie crusts; just make sure it's completely thawed out.

3. Transfer meat mixture into prepared crust. Pour egg mixture over the meat and use a fork to move the meat around, letting the egg mixture settle in between. Sprinkle with cheeses.

4. Bake for 45-60 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. If necessary, cover edges with foil during the last 15 minutes to prevent over-browning. Let stand for 15 minutes before cutting.

*I used Pillsbury Frozen Deep Dish Pie Crust...worked out just fine*



  1. I've been eyeing this one for quite a while too. It looks so delicious!

  2. I saw your photo on Amazon of the pie plate you used to make this...I googled the recipe since you mentioned it in the caption, and, not knowing you had a blog, I happened to click on your link. Was pleasantly surprised that I accidentally connected the two, and I am looking forward to trying this dish very soon. Sounds super yummy! Thanks!
