Making the Perfect Keto Cheeseburger Pie

Let’s dive into the step-by-step process of making this mouthwatering keto cheeseburger pie.

Step 1: Preparing Your Ingredients

Before we begin, let’s gather all the ingredients we need:

  • 1.5 pounds of ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon of butter (divided)
  • 1 medium onion (diced)
  • 4 whole eggs
  • ½ teaspoon of garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon of mustard powder
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • ¼ teaspoon of ground black pepper
  • 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese

Ensure you have all these ingredients ready before you start cooking.

Step 2: Preparing the Dish

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a pie or casserole dish with some of the butter. You can use a 9-inch round pie plate or an 8×8-inch baking dish for this recipe.

Step 3: Cooking the Beef

In a skillet, melt another portion of the butter over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef and cook until it’s lightly browned. Once cooked, transfer the ground beef to the prepared baking dish.

Step 4: Cooking the Onions

Using the same skillet, add the remaining butter and cook the diced onions until they are translucent, stirring frequently. This should take about 5-7 minutes.

Step 5: Preparing the Egg Mixture

While the onions are cooking, whisk the eggs in a bowl. Add the garlic powder, mustard powder, salt, and pepper, and mix well. Pour this egg mixture over the cooked ground beef in the baking dish, ensuring it spreads evenly.

Step 6: Layering the Pie

Next, arrange the cooked onions in an even layer on top of the egg mixture. Finally, sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese over the entire pie.

Step 7: Baking

Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly, and the center of the pie is set.

Step 8: Serving

Once baked, remove the cheeseburger pie from the oven and let it rest for 5 minutes before slicing. This allows the juices to settle, making it easier to slice and serve.

Step 9: Serving Suggestions

Serve your delicious keto cheeseburger pie on a bed of lettuce, accompanied by classic burger add-ins such as mustard, sugar-free ketchup, homemade pickle relish, pickles, and sliced tomatoes.

Step 10: Storing Leftovers

If you have any leftovers, you can store them in the freezer for later use. Simply let the pie cool completely, then transfer individual slices to an airtight container or freezer bag. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator and warm in the oven before serving.

Step 11: Variations

Feel free to get creative with your keto cheeseburger pie! Add bacon for a bacon cheeseburger twist, make it in the slow cooker for added convenience, or incorporate hidden organ meats for extra nutrition.
