This low carb cheeseburger pie recipe has been made gluten free by using a coconut flour mixture instead of regular flour.
My life can get hectic between working full-time and taking care of a toddler at home. I just don’t have a lot of time for cooking daily meals. Simple dishes that use basic ingredients are the key to my survival.
I generally do most of my cooking on the weekends and either freeze leftovers or refrigerate them for quick meals during the week. In the future, I’d really like to start cooking in large batches to build up a stash of quick freezer meals. Perhaps low carb freezer meal recipes can be the subject of future posts.
We do have a large upright freezer which stores a lot of the venison that my husband gets during hunting season. He typically takes the meat to a local butcher to process into venison burger and sausage as I’m not a big fan of the steaks or stew meat.
Occasionally, I’ll get some cuts to make homemade jerky. On busy nights, I just saute the burger meat with some garlic and soy sauce along with some low carb vegetable like green beans.
This recipe is my low carb spin on the Bisquick recipe for Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie recipe which uses just a bit of coconut flour. This recipe calls for ingredients I usually have on hand and it’s fast to prepare on those busy nights after work.
There’s a lot of room for modification in this recipe so feel free to add your favorite seasonings or veggies. You can also reduce the number of eggs if you wish or add some chia gel. I think some green beans or spinach would be nice additions.
