THM Cheeseburger Pie- S Meal




Cheeseburger Pie is one of my families favorite meals! Every time my husband looks me in the eyes and expressed his extremely appreciation for me making this meal! It's very easy and I make it all in one dish from start to finish with my handy cast iron skillet!

You will need:

2.5lbs of ground beef (drain the grease)
1/2 cup of heavy cream
1/2 cup of mayo
2 eggs
12 ounces of cheddar (or colby or whatever you prefer) cheese

Toppings- whatever you would like on your hamburger. I added red onions and pickles but you could also add jalapenos, tomatoes, etc.

Preheat your oven to 350.
Brown your ground beef and season with salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, whatever sounds good to you! While your beef is browning, mix in a separate bowl the heavy cream, mayo and 2 eggs. Drain off the grease. Once your grease is drained, place your meat in an oven safe dish (I just used my cast iron skillet) and mix in half of your cheese. Add your toppings, I used red onions and pickles, then pour the cream/mayo/egg mixture over the toppings and meat and then top with your remaining cheese. Bake for 35 minutes.


I like to serve my cheeseburger pie over a bed of lettuce and fresh tomatoes. For my children I add a side of tater tots (NOT THM friendly!)

I do not take credit for the creation of this meal. This recipe can be found in the Trim Healthy Mama book!

I hope you enjoy! Let me know if you decide to try the recipe!

Hmmmm, could you leave out or substitute the mayo for something else? Otherwise a great-looking meal!!!!

Yes Rachel! Greek yogurt or sour cream make good substitutes!
