Bisquick Impossible Cheeseburger Pie

This casserole pie has been loved by many since it was first baked back in the mid-century and these recipes are often passed down through generations. There are lots of variations of this family favourite recipe, but I’m definitely a big fan of the Bisquick variety!

Bisquick started adding this “impossible pie” to its boxes back in the 1970’s with the idea of making a dessert that was impossibly easy to put together, and it certainly took off. If you have yet to taste it, you’ll soon see why when you do! I have made the dessert version with my Saskatoon Impossible Pie and it’s easy and delicious!

Ingredients in Cheeseburger Pie

Cheeseburger Pie is so easy to make and you will have most of the ingredients in your pantry or fridge already.

  • Ground beef – lean is best
  • Onion – I always use white for the sharpest taste, but you can use yellow
  • Bacon – I like to use thick cut bacon
  • Cheddar cheese – Sharp or old cheddar adds the most flavor to this pie
  • Original Bisquick™ mix – see below for how to make a homemade substitution
  • Milk – you can use any milk that you want to
  • Eggs – large eggs as per usual

How to Make Bisquick Impossible Cheeseburger Pie

  • Spray a 9-inch pie plate with cooking spray.
  • Place the ground beef, onion, and bacon into a large skillet. Fry until the ground beef is browned, the onions are soft and translucent and the bacon is cooked. Drain the grease and place in the bottom of the prepared pie plate.
  • Sprinkle the cheese on top.
  • Whisk together the baking mix, the milk, and the eggs,
  • Pour over the cheese and ground beef evenly.
  • Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until a knife or toothpick inserted comes out clean.

What is Bisquick?

In case you’re not familiar with Bisquick, let me fill you in (you won’t look back!). Bisquick is a super handy pre-mixed baking mix that’s made with flour, baking powder, shortening, and salt. It really speeds up the baking process and it’s something I couldn’t do without at this stage! It’s a great way of cutting corners and reducing time in the kitchen without having a terrible effect on the overall quality of your meal (it really doesn’t!).

Homemade Bisquick Mix

I personally think it’s much easier to make this recipe with Bisquick on hand, but if you don’t have any in the kitchen  – don’t worry, there’s an alternative! For a quick Bisquick substitute, you’ll need:

  • ½ cup flour
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • 2 tsp of cold butter
  • Mix the flour, sugar, baking soda, sugar, and salt in a bowl and work in the cold butter using a pastry cutter until you get a breadcrumb-like mix.

Carbs in Cheeseburger Pie

A serving of Bisquick Impossible Cheeseburger Pie has about 360 calories and 11g of carbs. So it’s not the worst on the carbohydrate front but you definitely need to keep an eye on your serving portions if you’re monitoring your carb intake.

  2. Martha says

    Your Homemade Bisquick mix you wrote down in the ingredients; 1tsp baking powder, but in the instructions it’s baking soda. Which one is it? Does it matter?

    I JUST have to say one thing.. Thank You ?
    I have been a busy beaver in the kitchen since the Covid-19 broke out…
    Luckily I’ve discovered that there is a grocery delivery ap and I’ve been non stop making orders ?
    Like you “K” housework gives me hives ? So I decided cooking an baking was going to not only keep me busy, But putting on smiles for family and friends… the Hamburger meals are my VERY most. Favourite Hands Down❣️
    The cheeseburger pie was my latest and I took it over to my daughters today dropping it off on her doorstep like a pizza delivery man (without the payment ?)
    My Grandson being a little fusspot (not from our side of the family, we’re Hungarian, we eat everything, including the kitchen sink.. as long as it’s sorinkled with Paprika ?)
    He L♥️VED it!!!
    So on to another Recipe ?
    Thank you KaryLyn .
    . Your the Cats Ass Lady❣️ ?5 stars

  5. Cathy says

    Best ever. All the other recipes for this are Not the original. This is IT! This is my go to site for all my recipes.5 stars

  6. Nancy Thomas says

    I use ground Turkey, onion, celery, brown/saute in one Tbl butter, don’t drain, add to PAM sprayed baking dish. Salt, pepper, poultry seasoning, garlic powder, thyme are the seasonings I use in milk, egg and bisquick. Chop raw broccoli to small-ish florets and layer over meat, then add shredded yellow cheese. Pour liquid over meat, broccoli, cheese. Then layer crumbled blue cheese and more shredded parmesan over top. Bake as instructed. Comes out like stuffing with broccoli and cheese. Yum!5 stars

      Sounds to me like you made your own recipe and rated that. If you want to o that then why don’t you just leave no stars, because you are not rating the recipe posted here.

      • Anna-Marie S says

        I agree Cheryl!!
        Sounds to me she’s using this site instead of making up her own website to post her recipes.. NOT cool!!!

        • Kimberly Carlson says

          Thank You! I was thinking the same thing……. they only missed kitchen sink……

    • Catherine says

      My family loved this. I made it years ago, using bisquick recipe, but it didn’t come out as good. If it’s the same, I guess I did better this time. Does the salt and pepper go in the beef or the topping?5 stars

  7. Karlynn Johnston says

    400! Fixed and thanks for letting me know!5 stars

  8. Myrna says

    What temperature? Your recipe does not state tyre temp.

  9. John Starklauf says
