Ingredient Notes and Substitutions
- Bisquick Baking Mix
This ingredient becomes the crust for the impossible cheeseburger pie. You should be able to find it in the same aisle of the grocery store where they stock the dry pancake mixes.
Of course, we prefer to use our homemade Bisquick recipe. It’s an easy recipe, and you don’t need any special ingredients to make it.
Note: If you need a gluten free dinner, swap out the Original Bisquick mix for their gluten free variety.
We prefer to use whole milk for this recipe, as it makes the filling really creamy! You can substitute with low-fat or skim milk, but the consistency of your filling will be a little bit thinner.
- Ground hamburger
We recommend using lean ground beef, for the best flavor without too much greasy fat. 85/15 is our go-to ground beef blend.
You can swap out the beef for ground turkey, chicken, or even pork.
We used shredded cheddar cheese for this Bisquick dinner recipe because of its sharp flavor and melty texture. You can use a mix of cheeses such as Monterey Jack, mozzarella, or Colby-Jack if you prefer.
You can even top it with some American cheese slices for an even cheesier topping!

Tips for Making Bisquick Impossible Pie
- Whisk the batter well to eliminate lumps.
If there are too many lumps in the batter, it might make the pie puff up in some areas and it will not bake evenly. To avoid this, mix the batter until it is completely smooth to get a beautiful and smooth pie.
- Drain the grease, if necessary.
Lean ground beef produces less grease when cooking. If the beef is lean enough, you may not even have to worry about draining the grease before adding it to the pie.
- Shred a block of cheese instead of using pre-shredded.
Freshly shredded cheese has the best flavor, and it melts more evenly, for maximum cheesy goodness in every bite. Plus, it’s much more cost-effective than pre-shredded cheese!
Looking for other ground beef dinner ideas?
Another super quick, favorite ground beef recipe is our beefy Velveeta cheese soup.
Or, for a southwest flair, make tachos or stovetop chili con carne for dinner. They are both scrumptious and simple weeknight meals!
- Jiggle the dish to help the batter settle in the pan.
After adding the ingredients, jiggle the dish gently a few times. This ensures that all parts of the impossible pie will have a flaky crust on top.
Bisquick Pie Variations
- Switch up the flavors by adding diced bell peppers or jalapenos for some added heat.
- Add a crunchy topping. Before you pop the casserole in the oven to bake, sprinkle a layer of crushed Ritz crackers over the top of the filling.
- Make it Italian style. Swap the ground beef for ground Italian sausage, and use shredded mozzarella cheese.
- For a Mexican Bisquick pie, use ground pork or ground chorizo. Include diced tomatoes, green chilies, and black olive slices. Use a spicy shredded cheese for an unforgettably scrumptious dinner!!
Cheeseburger Pie Recipe FAQ
If you’re using a pie dish, you need to put cooking spray first. But if you’re using a skillet, you don’t need to add any oil because the fat from the ground beef will be enough to keep it from sticking.
Yes, seasoning the ground beef with salt and pepper before browning will help enhance the flavor of your pie.
If your pie is bleeding, it’s likely because the ground beef was not cooked thoroughly before adding it to the crust. Make sure to cook the ground beef until it is browned and properly crumbled.
What to Serve with Bisquick Cheeseburger Pie
This impossible cheeseburger pie with Bisquick is a hearty meal all on its own, but it’s also great served with a side of green salad or steamed vegetables.
