This simple keto low carb cheeseburger pie recipe has been made gluten free and THM friendly 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? I just need to find the time to put that together as it would be really helpful for me as well as other. But I would definitely add in this easy gluten free low carb cheeseburger pie recipe.
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 venison 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.
How to make a simple keto cheeseburger pie
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.
You’ll need the following ingredients:
- coconut flour (photo 1)
- almond flour (photo 1)
- chopped onion (photo 2)
- eggs (photo 3)
- unsweetened almond milk (photo 4)
- baking powder (photo 5)
- sea salt (photo 5)
- shredded cheese like white cheddar (photo 6)
- ground beef or venison burger (photo 7)
- tomato (optional)
To start, the beef is cooked with the onion in a skillet until browned which takes about 8 to ten minutes. (photos 7-9)
Then, the beef mixture in spread out evenly in a pie plate. I like to use a 9.5-inch glass pie plate for the keto low carb cheeseburger pie.
The coconut flour, almond flour, baking powder, almond milk, and eggs are then blended in a medium bowl. This mixture is poured over the cooked ground beef.
Next, the grated cheese is sprinkled on top. The pie is then baked at 400°F for about 25 minutes.
The optional tomatoes are added at this point if desired. Other cheeseburger condiments like ketchup or pickles can also be added into the pie.
After adding optional toppings, the pie is baked for another five minutes.
Why I like this easy low carb cheeseburger pie
My family is really picky. But, everyone loves cheese. So I can get away with serving them delicious keto meals like this simple low carb cheeseburger pie or my bacon cheeseburger casserole.
The recipe also fits a gluten free and Trim Healthy Mama (THM) lifestyle as well as those on keto. And it’s one of the easiest dishes to make on a busy night.
Another benefit is that the dish freezes well. So if you are only cooking for one or two, just put the leftovers in the freezer for a quick and convenient dinner later.
Variations of the recipe
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.
Green beans or spinach would be nice additions. Or add in some bacon, mushrooms, and other popular burger toppings.
I hope you enjoy this cheesy dinner pie as much as my family does. And if you have any suggestions on how to make it better, I’d love to hear about them in the comments.
